VÅRRUNDAN 2012 - "Spring Thaw Rally": Saturday 31st March, Olofström (south) SWEDEN

It's NOT a race as such, but for any of the RACING forums northern euro's who don't frequent the EUROPE forum... here is a heads up;

Vårrundan “Spring Thaw Ride”

Saturday 31st March. The "Back in Blekinge" Tour
Halens Camping / Conference and Restaurant in Olofström.


Each year since 2005 Swedish.Moto-Safaris host the traditional Swedish road book rally premiere;
VÅRRUNDAN 2012 will be held in Olofström, (Blekinge region) on Saturday 31st March 2012 ...
(the first weekend after we turn our clocks over the summer, and one weekend before Easter).

Olofström is approximately two hours driving time from the southern Swedish port cities of either
Trelleborg or Helsingborg, and 1 hour 45 minutes from Malmö/the Öresund bridge (if driving via Denmark).



For more information about the "Spring Thaw Rally", go to the VÅRRUNDAN 2012 thread in the VENDORS forum;

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=759328

There you will find info. on the event schedule, accomodation, booking and entry procedures/links etc.

regards

TSC.

In Sweden the snow is gone now... it's time for...

VÅRRUNDAN "Spring Thaw" Ride 2012... it's on this weekend!!!


All is set for the "Spring Thaw" ride... we have 250 km's of great roads and trails laid out in the Blekinge region this year,
for the list of 60 starters - amongst them we have three Danish, two Norwegians, a German, one Dutch and a whole pile
of crazy Swede's... all led by a less than stable exiled Aussie.... what could possibly go wrong??!!!

As far as the planning itself goes... all the rooms are booked, the caterer has got the chow organised for the party, roadbooks are printed,
the beers in the fridge chilling, sun is shining (has been 15 to 18 degrees C all week) and all that is left is for me to tape and arrow the two
special tests today...


Then it's time for (more) of this on Saturday

Vårrundan 2012

Run and done...



Well, for those that did not make it to the "Spring Thaw Ride" this year... you don't know WHAT you missed... it was a great weekend; fabulous roads in prime condition, some great trails and special tests (two of them) and 60 great blokes to ride with... okay, it was a "bit" cold on the day (between 0 and +3 degrees) but the roads were dry, the smiles were broad and the coffee at the energy break in the woods was warm and appreciated by all! '

While I work on the 200 plus photo's to sort through and a report... here are a few compliation videos I found on the youtube from the 2010 and 2011 Vårrundan Spring Thaw Ride's to wet the appetite... as well as a little snippet from part of the 2012 route...
