The motorbike miracle from Estoril is missing. Last year’s sidecar world champion Markus Schlosser (50) was able to win the Saturday race at the season finale and thus postpone the title fight to Sunday. But in the last race of his career, Schlosser and his co-driver Marcel Fries (55) made a faux pas when lapping. The race victory is gone, the Swiss duo stays in second place. It no longer plays a role in the fight for the title. The British world championship leader Todd Ellis crosses the finish line in third place and is the new world champion.

Schlosser, the first Swiss sidecar world champion in 2021 since legend Rolf Biland in 1994, is dethroned when he retires. “The race on Sunday was a reflection of the season,” says the Bernese, “we were actually the fastest, but something always came up.”
