We start the last day with a leisurely breakfast. The rest of the route takes us up to 1215 meters, but we secretly know that we will make it today. In a good mood and chatting wildly, we follow the Stoneman signs in beautiful weather. At a junction, Katja calls out loudly and directs us away from the route again. After just three minutes, we are suddenly standing on a viewing tower in the middle of a huge moorland landscape. We take the time to stop for a moment. But each of us now wants to continue, because we can already hear the Stoneman Trophy calling. For the second time, we pass the lovely rest stop especially for all Stonemen and -women. A private garden with deckchairs under fruit trees, fridges with drinks and chocolate bars and even Wi-Fi invites you to take an extended break. We chat with other cyclists who are on the Stoneman MTB or Road, sharing our experiences and adventures. It's like meeting up with old friends, you immediately feel connected. But at some point we really have to move on. We pedal through a long valley alongside a beautiful stream, when suddenly a massive gravel ramp opens up in front of us. We grit our teeth because no one really wants to descend. And indeed, everyone makes it and as a reward we get a view of our final checkpoint - the Fichtelberghaus. However, the gradient doesn't let up and the sky darkens above us. The closer we get to our destination, the more it roars from above. When we are almost at the summit, the sky opens up, but we don't let that spoil our good mood - especially not now!
