Russia vs Europe
The difference between riding icespeedway in Russia and Europe is that the Russians only sweep the track after every 4th lap. Thy don´t plow afterwards like they do in the rest of Europe. That leaves the riders with a very bumpy track. Therefor the riders who are more used to the slushy surface face serious challenge in Russia. Also the ice is considered very hard due to the cold. Here are some pictures from the races in Krasnogorsk last weekend. As usual, a big thanks to www.isracing.net.
