The German team 50 years ago, at the European Championship in Aachen 1961. Fritz Thiedemann on Godewind, Hans Günter Winkler on Romanus, Alwin Schockemöhle on Bachus and Hermann Schridde on Ferdl.
Westfalenhalle Dortmund 1964: Jump-off in Championat von Dortmund with Janou Lefèbvre, Nelson Pessoa on Espartaco and the winner Kurt Jarasinski on Torro. The Puissance with Peter Schmitz on Amsella and Alwin Schockemöhle on Ferdl jumping the wall on 2.10 meters, and attempting the German record on 2,26 meters.
Of all great riders through the years, Alwin Schockemöhle will always remain number one for me.
