Drifting at the race’s fringes

What do you actually still see, if you have been somewhere for the same reason for 14 years in a row? This was the case for me at the IRONMAN Frankfurt 2017 this year.
Okay, I could have told myself ”enough is enough”, I simply don’t go there anymore. But on the other hand I wanted to Sebastian Kienle and Andi Boecherer racing each other as my relation to them is close. Moreover, the Rhein Main area was my home for almost 25 years, a kind of test whether I may experience such a feeling like homesickness. The clear-cut answer is NO.

Now back to my view on this event. What to do that my eyes don’t fall into a lull and the camera in my hand turns into an image collector without a storyline instead of collecting the images for a story already alive in my head. Until the very moment when I touched down on race grounds, I didn’t really know what I was going tell.

For myself I can say I was lucky in the end I managed to tell a story. I put it in a nutshell here, and call the whole video essay »this is no race report and reflects the fact that Biestmilch is more than triathlon« … If we watch these mega events as a casual bystander, we may sense the rays these spectacles send out beyond the loud happiness, namely, that we have a massive security issue, that we definitely eat too much and that our cross-species relations are weird…



Susann is the biest prototype and head of the team. She is Austrian, has studied medicine, meaning she is a medical doctor and the Biesters' alpha wolf. Susann continuously produces new ideas, is strong in making concepts and is practically always ON FIRE. Without her BIESTMILCH wouldn't be where and what it is today, and anyway - not possible.
