Hello, this is Lars.
Lars is the interactive visualization of one of the most challenging sports ever to be invented. 500m in 20 seconds, top speeds up to 100km/h. No engine attached, of course. Welcome. You are now entering the world of goldsprint (?)!
The elite of the Austrian bike messengers meet in Linz, to compete in various disciplines. Since all these guys are the fastest of the fastest, they use goldsprints to figure out, who the fastest of the fastest of the fastest is... and Lars is in the middle of this race.
On Friday, the 23th, our friends at the StyrianSprintShop(?) will hold a qualification. This qualification starts at about 9pm and is open for everyone. In order to support Lars on his mission to visualize hardcore-cycling at its best, you have to have one of the top16 times of the evening. Try as often as you want... or can! You just have to visit cafe Kijani in time. No pre-registration needed.
The 16 best bikers under the Austrian sun will meet to a final heads up on Saturday, the 24th. This takes place at the Grand Hotel Roter Krebs (?), starting at 9pm again. Lucky you, if you are one of them.
So, OK, here is the deal. You guys ride the hell out of those two bikes and Lars maps you live onto the media-facade of the Ars Electronica Center(?) right beside the blue Danube. This will be the biggest goldsprint visualization the world has ever seen. Ever.
Lars has been invented by wirbrennen., an agency for interactive awesomeness based in Graz, Austria. It is based on the trailblazing open-source goldsprint(?) software Radar, which is going to be released somewhere in the near future.
Several people and organizations have been involved to realize that fun.
This event is part of the OERM11(?), the austrian bike messenger championships, and as such has been planned and carried out by the local bike messengers in Linz. You did a great job. Hopefully.
The crew of the StyrianSprintShop(?) provided their knowledge and their goldsprint bikes. They will also host the goldsprint race on the 24th.
Claus and the rest of the AEC and the FutureLab(?). Thanks for letting us play with your shiny home.
