The Titanic Slam started in the weekend of Halloween on the 30th of October 2020 and ended on the 29th of October 2021.
Long long ago Maarten and Marek participated in the first edition of the Legends Trail. Somewhere during this Ardennes adventure they talked about the movie ‘the Revenant’, about the scene where Leonardo di Caprio is attacked by a bear and refuses to give up. That’s when LEO180 was born, referring to Leonardo di Caprio. LEO was lonely for a long time, till now. Lately, in Germany close to the Netherlands, Leo’s love rejuvenated by the Zermans Tim and Björn. KATE180 was born, referring to the blockbuster Titanic where Kate survives Leo.
As we all know the movie Titanic, we kept thinking of some more races and added the Duinhopper to this 2021 project. After all the Duinhopper is next to the sea all the time, where the Titanic has its grave. To complete the brilliant story, another challenge had to be added. Tim and Marek discussed some days about a little hill near Coo and in the end agreed on how to use it for a really insane race, The Iceberg, which resulted in the oceans grave of Titanic.
