The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Horst Maas loves his sleddogs. Harnessed as a team, he races with them across the countryside. The annual highlight is the “Old Musher Race,” a private training-cart race that Maas organizes on his farm in Šalmanovice, Czech Republic. In Fieber, Claudia Linzer meets someone who has an incurable infection: the virus called joie de vivre.
