Nine days – nine federal states – from lake to lake – from stage to stage = “Austria spins on the wheel”!
From a simple idea a huge project was born in Corona time. Within a few weeks, this nine-day TV show was first conceived and then implemented in an exemplary manner. Studio K19 and Pro Event Cycling Sports GmbH (Team Vorarlberg Santic) were able to perfectly stage a completely new format. Top-class sports met mass sports with Max Kuen and Friends at the top, plus numerous tourist regions with their focus on cycling. Also, the bike shop and other partners could be inspired for this project. The reward: An incredible media interest with a broad coverage in words and pictures over almost two weeks. Thanks to all participants and the whole crew – but also to our new TV star Max Kuen😊!
Best advertising for cycling and all partners in difficult times!
The last stage of Team Vorarlberg Santic Profi Max Kuen and Friends will be broadcast tomorrow Saturday on https://k19.at from 14 – 18 o’clock. The start will be in St. Anton am Arlberg – the finish will be in Bregenz directly at the world biggest sea theatre stage.
