Miracle Mike’s rider, Katja Poensgen, was presented with the new Indian Scout Bobber as a gift from Indian for her racing this year. “Wow, I can’t believe I’m going home with this bike,” exclaimed Katja. “I cannot wait to spend some time riding it.”

Glemseck 101, held on the site of the historic Solitude race track, has been bringing bikers together from all over Europe for the past 12 years, who make the journey for three days of partying and sprint race action.

Indian Motorcycle Design Award

Seems that Miracle Mike had got a strong following away from the race track too, with 826 people casting their vote for Miracle Mike as their favourite bike. This meant Indian won 2nd place in Essenza’s Design Award.

The Essenza sprint race was held on the Saturday and saw 16 motorcycles compete down an eighth-mile drag strip. Katja Poensgen raced Miracle Mike again, but it was not Mike’s day and he didn’t run with the same power and gusto that Indian had seen in previous races. Still, this Scout sprint racer had previously blown away the competition at both the Café Racer Festival and at Punks Peak during the Wheels & Waves festival.
