Euro round 8
posted by: anneke @ 02/25/2008
I have to say the Latvia guys are on it. Stromberg won 5 rounds already and in the overall standing they are in 1st, 2nd and 4th position! Strombergs and Lakucs are riding really strong at the moment. There were more crashes today (turns were more slippery) and some fast guys like Michel Prokop were out of the race early. I also saw some familiar 4-cross faces, Scott Baumont (pic2), Roman Saladinie and Joost Wichman (pic3) were racing as well. Great to see them here getting ready for their 4-cross season. In the women race it was Chausson who was riding.... like she always rides... smooth. No mistakes and she won 2 days in a row, in 2nd was Le Corguille, Pottier tried to make a move for 3rd by jumping a big double.... she cased it big time and crashed with some more girls.
