Update from “Mud race one” aka CEMAR-1, 2016

Sikke et mudderbad vi fik i CEMAR-1 racet i Dall, Aalborg i lørdags. Rigtig øv, for banen var preppet perfekt, og var klar til indbydende race..lige indtil fredag eftermiddag kl. 14. Der var nogen der ikke havde spist op torsdag aften, så uvejret brød løs og det stod ned i stænger i 6 timer. Heldigvis havde vores banemand i ALMK luret udviklingen og undladt at harve banen så meget af vandet løb af og blev drænet væk. Det kunne dog ikke afvande al vandet, og lørdag morgen skulle træningen afgøre om vi skulle gennemføre eller ikke. Lørdag bød på tørvejr og let brise, og det vil normalt tørre banen op på et par timer, så efter Jury møde, blev det besluttet at gennemføre racet. Desværre valgte nogle kører at køre hjem, og andre dukkede slet ikke op. 89 startende var dog et flot commitment og tak til alle der valgte at blive og støtte op om racet. Vi blev alle 10 år yngre at se på, for mudder var der stadig nok af 🙂

What a mud race we got on Saturday in the first meeting of CEMAR 2016 in Dall, Aalborg. What a shame cause the race track was perfectly prepped and ready for some good race….right up til Friday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Somebody hadn’t finished the dinner plate Thursday night cause the sky opened and it rained continuously for 6 hours. Luckily our experienced track keeper in ALMK had seen it coming, and he hadn’t harrowed the track so most of the water was drained away from the track. However, nothing could drain all that rain, so the Jury met on Friday and decided to let the next days morning practice decide whether to race or not. Saturday morning arrived with dry sky and wind, which meant good chances of drying up the track quickly, and the Jury decided to continue the race as scheduled. Unfortunately some riders had turned around and gone home, and some didn’t even show up but 89 riders decided to race, and what a commitment to racing. Thank you all for supporting the event and race the “mud race”. We all got a 10 years younger appearance due to the all the mud – cause there was still plenty of it 🙂
