BMW Riders Named Fastest in Cannonball 1000 Endurance Run
BMW motorcycle enthusiasts earned top honors in the first ever Cannonball 1000 endurance run in the Philippines. Cementing his reputation as one of the country’s finest professional riders, 68-year old businessman Max Kienle led the individual category on a BMW R1200 GS Adventure LC. The BMW Motorrad-supported Club PK also displayed a stellar performance and finished ahead of their counterparts in the Group of 10 category.
Under the leadership of six-time endurance champion Joey Almeda, the recently concluded Cannonball 1000 surpassed its target headcount and attracted over 600 motorcycle riders and car drivers from all over the country. Participants of the event navigated a route of over 1000 kilometers across Northern Luzon to complete the 24-hour challenge.
