November 2008, Ymte abducts German Milan mascot
On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of Räderwerk Hannover, the
Räderwerk team enjoyed the presence of several prominent visitors, including
the godfather of the Quest velomobile and world champion Ymte Sijbrandij. He
had arrived with his Quest and apparently enjoyed the performances of the
Milan mascot "Snow White". Witnesses saw the two talking to each other several
times in the VIP area. At an opportune moment, Ymte drove up with his Quest
and picked up the diva. According to the Räderwerk team, this happened against
her will. Despite hot pursuit, the Räderwerk team didn't manage to stop Ymte
before reaching the Dutch border.
There will be a different hatch door for riders shorter than 185 cm (6'1"). The
bulges for the knees on this are reduced to a minimum.
