Report from Näckrosdammen Open 2007!
The weather gods were on our side and we had a nice dry and sunny course well in time for the practice runs, despite heavy raining in the morning.
A record number of participants (31) showed up together with the usual large mob of blood thirsty spectators well in time before things went off.
Zaki cranked up the sound system, and our speaker Viktor pumped up both crowd and riders.
Red Bull and the good folks from Studio3 provided drinks and hot dogs and the shit hit the fan!
The riders put up an amazing performance, but to sum things up, the GS oldboys proved that experience beats youth, at least this time.
Unfortunatley the complete results were misplaced at the rather rowdy afterparty at Wishclub, but we managed to conjure up the top four in both categories.
1. Henrik Wadsten
2. Mikael Hadestrand
3. Viktor Mårtensson
4. Tomas ”Berra” Berggren
1. David Hansson
2. Niclas Tyllgren
3. Karl Roos
4. Ludvig Troäng
Big thanks to everyone involved. Organizers, co-sponsors, volunteers, riders and spectators. No one mentioned – no one forgotten!
See you next year!
