    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; :deal

    VÅRRUNDAN "Spring Thaw" Ride 2012... [​IMG] it's on this weekend!!! :D


    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??!!! :huh:lol3

    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... :D


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