The second race is on…

December 29th, 2005

Bormio race started yesterday evening, and the most desperate already started to take some action.

So the pack is currently lead by RandomLogic with 2:02.8, closly followed by HerbNator, JoAce and ludwigma, all within a second.

DrPhlox and Kuemmelbaron still try to get their grip on the “snowy” condition, as they only trained for sun.

I’m sure JoAce will try to push the limits again on snow with a low 2:02 time, like in qualification.

Hope the rest of the club is joining in for some tough competition. Happy skiing!

Bormio qualification ends…

December 28th, 2005

Qualification for Bormio is nearly over. It has been a tough competition, and we are ready to roll.

HerbNator put a great run together last nite, leading “sunny” condition with 1:59.5 now, still followed by me and JoAce and ludwigma with some tenth behind.

JoAce rules the snow with a good 2:02.7 time, followed by me. And I seem to be the king of ice for Bormio, at least for now, as only a few even tried it.

So wax your skies, only some hours left.

Get ready to rooooooooll.

Getting ready for Bormio

December 26th, 2005

Bormio is getting closer every day, so it’s just a matter of days now.

The challenge (“Wettkampf”) starts at 28.12.2005 23:00 and lasts until 30.12.2005 23:00, so plenty of time to get our racers down the hill.

Qualification has been tough so for, with HerbNator getting into the lead with the Extreme skies with a below 2:01 time. Only after we changed our skies (thanks to the article of walter1) JoAce and myself were able to get closer and I even surpassed HerbNater by 4 tenth of a second. And also ludwigma made it under 2:01.

So it seems we should be able to get into the TOP 50 clubs in the challenge, which is going to be our primary goal.

So get ready for the race, wax our skies, get some tips from our top racers and… race
