Additionally, we could also convince notable industry agents and the local press of the great capability of carbon fiber production in a short presentation of our company.

Our guests showed great interest in the manufacturing process and in our previously produced products.

We carried really nice conversations and could even establish new, important contacts.

On Friday, Oct the 27th, the first competion of the popular training series Bahn-o-Rama in Vienna was held. It’s the second year for the Series on the

In cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology bmvit, Chase was a guest at the lange Macht der Forschung 2018 on 13 March 2018 in Vienna.

There, scientists tried in a simplified way to make their latest findings easily understandable for the research of tomorrow.

Peter and Felix were invited to an interview in which they reported how they came up with their own start-up Chase. How they can realize themselves and manufacture carbon components in their own production facilities with all their strength and innovative spirit. In cooperation with FFG, we were selected in advance as the most innovative start-up and presented in an FFG advertising campaign.

After the interview on stage in the 1st district, visitors could get to know carbon parts and the company philosophy at the Chase booth. It was pleasing that many open and interested visitors passed by the stand on this summer evening.

The fifth edition and thus the final race of the Vienna Bahn-o-Rama Series in the Ferry Dusika Stadium, on March 2nd, took place again with the participation of Team Chase. The interest in this event grew from time to time, and the stands of the cycling stadium became more and more crowded.

For the mixed field of young athletes, paracyclists, amateurs and elite drivers, there were several competitions on the race schedule. To qualify for the A or B finals, two elimination races each were held.

In the points races, placings were fought for after the qualification. The race remained turbulent with exciting intermediate sprints after every 10th lap in order to score extra points by winning a lap and the well-known snowball system, in which more and more points are awarded in the increasing course of the race. Our athlete Felix took second place in the B final behind Wolfgang Steinbach.

A special highlight was the team race, Madison, which took place at the end. The teams of two were able to master the often spectacular changes between the two drivers during the laps with flying colours. There was no fall and the mood during the Madison increased. Team Chase received loud support from the inside of the track for this edition of the Bahn-o-Rama.

In this last and fifth edition of the Bahn-o-Rama the award ceremony of the series took place.

Manfred started his Cross-season 2017 yesterday. He chose an event in Traun in Upper Austria for his kick-off.

“Until the end of the second round I managed to catch up from the rear position that I had to start from. I now reached the leading group. From then, I could overtake the leading position every now and then. Due to some speed attacks the group got smaller. In the second half of the race there was a strong offensive by Philipp Heigl. I needed a whole round to catch up again. After that we were two at the leading position, but Andreas Hofer was only a few meters behind us. In this formation we started into the two last rounds. Most of the time I was cycling in the front position and was trying to keep the distance between me and my opponent. But he was cycling right behind me like a shadow.Finally, in the last bend, 300 meters to the finish line, the most important seconds followed. Philipp Heigl started to speed up amazingly and I couldn’t follow him – this gap remained and I wasn’t able to catch up anymore. Obviously, there was a narrow distance and missing the victory so shortly is teasing. My opponent was better today – huge respect to his performance – and the second position is also a good result.”

Of course it’s a pity to miss the victory shortly, but gratulation though to the excellent performance of Manfred.


Our Chase athlete Manfred Zöger took part in this 3-days-event at the croatian cost region close to Porec and used this opportunity for the finish of his MTB-season like many other mountain bikers.

At The first day, on Friday, a short but fast stage waited for the bikers. Due to the short distance of only 28 kilometers and the very flat track, it was a pulsating competition. The excitement among the cyclists could be felt and there were multiple offensives on the track. Finally, the bikers cycled an average velocity of 30 km per hour and the critical meters were in the final sprint. Manfred was part of the leading group and reached the sixth position. For the overall result, the next two days could still change everything.

The second day a 45 kilometers long course followed. Manfred was lucky that some cyclists in the leading group loosed their track. He finally finished as third biker. That helped him to be lifted up onto the second position after day two in the overall standings.

The marathon on the third day was a very exciting race. Manfred tried very hard and managed to stay with the leading group und headed onto the winner’s podium. The wheather conditions were not as good as on the first two days, it soon started to rain and after a while a powerful thunderbolt started.  That was not enough: Manfred was not lucky on that day. After a stony downhill he lost pressure in his rear wheel and had to stop to repair this harm. Thus, he finally arrived the daily finish after the first six cyclists and was thrown back onto the forth position in the overall standings.

All in all, it was a successful season closing of the MTB season. The turbulent race course showed once again that good and bad luck are very close to each other.

About 250 cyclists from nine different nations faced the challenge in the Bike Night Flachau. Due to a lot of rain and bad wheather conditions prior to the 7th edition of this event on 12th of August, a slippery track could be expected. To attain a fair and above all a secure competition the jury decided to shorten the course. The very heart of the track, the downhill through the Hermann-Maier-Weltcup-course, was only cycled in the first round. As a consequence, the race was even a closer competition between the first three bikers.

Felix Ritzinger wins the spectacle under floodlights in the ski resort Flachau! Partly, with times below 7 minutes per round and 300 starters on the track, dodging the other cyclists that he had overtaken and avoid collisions was the bigger challenge than the slippery and wet meadow. The leading position changed in nearly every round, but in the end after all 18 rounds Felix succeeded in the final sprint in the night and won with 2 hours and 8 minutes – after the disappointing results in previous competitions this was a very important victory for him!
