Rudi Lochner was a teacher of technical drawings and sports. He had his best times in the mid-1980s and the beginning 1990s driving with Markus Zimmermann as his brakeman in the two-man event. As a brakeman he was World runner-up in the four-man event in 1982 with pilot Peter Hell.
Then he turned to the pilot position and slid together with Zimmermann. They won a totally surprising bronze medal at the 1989 European Championships, although they had not yet been on the German A-Team. They also earned a 1990 German Championship (runner-up one year earlier), a 1992 World Championship, and a silver medal at the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics. Two years later they placed fourth at Lillehammer. He was best-known as a man who loved to drink beer and smoke cigarettes in the evening.
