After the dramatic finals in the Swedish championships for teams this weekend where Posa and his teammates from Gävle won with one point up to Funbo the time has come for an International open race called Kartoffelrennen. It takes place in Skövde. As Icy Riders weekly spoke to the arrangers last night there was some problems with the red tape concerning the Russian riders. But they were positive everything would settle today. Viola Brattberg, the lady in charge of the practicalities at the race acts translator as well as stand in mother for the Russian guests. She started studying Russian so she can follow the sport more closely. That´s interest for you! Fantastic.
