According to Mattias: "During the preparations for the European Championship 2012 in Nottingham we came on the idea for this calendar and therefore the "Drachenbootmänner" was born. Along with trying to find sponsors for the team, we have started to sell the calendar produced by ourselves. After our sporting success in Nottingham and the coronation with the world championship title in 1000 m in Szeged 2013, we have thought we try it once more with a calendar".
