Extract from a German newspaper :
" Dithmarschen. Christian Adam (neé Patzig) couldn´t believe it ! He set up a new worldrecord. In a suisse motorway tunnel he was cycling backwards 60.45 km while playing J.S. Bach on his violin. The well - known Showmaster Kurt Felix had asked Christian Adam to try this record for his Suisse TV Show "Supertreffer". Christian did it. Everybody was astonished to see him sitting on the handlebar and pedaling 60 kilometer quite relaxed. The music stand was fixed where the " visual " cyclist has his saddle. Christian was astonished about the good sound in the motorway tunnel. Undouptedly he is better in the Concert hall of Hamburg. Here he is studying music with the violin as main subject. Beside he was concertmaster for many years in the youth Orchestra from Schleswig -Holstein."
