European Championships Orleans France
By Dutch Dreamteam on May 08, 2012
It was an indoor event when we arrived in France on the Wednesday the track “looked” fine but when the trainings sessions started it turned out the turns were so slippery that a lot of riders crashed. Sometimes even all 8 riders.
Also on the Friday “Championships” of the cruisers” almost in every race 2,3,4 riders went down!! The organisation did nothing about it, which is a big shame. Also on the Saturday when all the challenge classes had to race on the “ice” turns , there were a lot of crashes.
It took until the Junior/Elite started to race before the organisation had to take action and put “carpet” in all turns and the Race was delayed for 3 hours, this had also cost the Dutch Dreamteam 2 podium places (Jeffrey Bignell (Cruissers 40-44)and Erik Peters(Boys 10).and some possible “Mainfinals” and also Boys
Next race AK2 Oss.
