FDietmar Heddergott used to go on club holidays in the Caribbean, now he goes to dog shows in Donaueschingen or Dresden.

Anyone who rides the route along the Main from Hanau to Frankfurt from time to time by bike or inline skates may have wondered what is actually going on at Offenbach-Bürgel behind the fenced, large area of the Frankfurt Sighthound Racing Club.
