Kozakov 2015 Final Day

The day started with some rain at 9 o'clock, so we waited a bit until the road dried up. We did one warm up run, but it started to drizzle again, leaving the road patchy at some points. We waited until it was dry again and sent the second warm up down.

Again there was some drizzle coming down. For the safety of the riders, the organisation then decided to shorten the track, to make sure we could do a safe race. This took some time, because we had to move the start line down and the finish line up (and thus no more wifi for updates).

When this was done, the sun came out and we started the race on a completely dry track. We started with warm ups for every one to get used to the new track and after that it was on.

Open did their first round, together with classic luge. Since there were only 16 classic riders, it only took 3 rounds, after which Mikel Echegaray-Diez came out on top, which surprised no one. He probably sold his soul to the devil, because his…

Kozakov 2015 qualifying day

Today was the first day of racing, timed racing that is. Riders were doing solo runs, to get a qualifying time, which determines their position in the final brackets. Due to the fact we have a total of 198 (!) riders in open, we will have 3 brackets, A, B and C. That means 14 riders didn't make the cut, which meant people actually had to ride hard to make it into a bracket.

The day started with a bit of clouds, but shortly after 9, we did the first run. As always the first one (often) takes the longest, so when we had the rhythm down, things went smoother and runs went faster.

The screen went up so riders could see their own quali times which made them only want to go faster. As the runs progressed, faster times were set. Everyone tried to shave of seconds to get a better time.

This track is without a doubt, the most gnarly (race) track of Europe, which often takes quite a few casualties. Luckily this year that was not the case and we only had…

TMI Lillehammer Day 3

The day started early, like both days before, with the shuttle going up the hill at 8.15 for the start of the first runs. We started with a warm-up run for the 64-man B bracket with 53 riders.

These 53 riders were gunning for the final 4 places in the A bracket. Luckily we didn't have any crashes or delays, so we 'shot' through them pretty quickly and in the end, these final 4 were:

  • Justin Rouleaux
  • Ludwig Falstrom
  • Dyna Banks
  • Garret Creamer

Big respect goes out to Justin Rouleaux who was actually a bit disappointed he was in the B bracket. He managed to survive the entire B bracket and the first round of the A bracket before being eliminated in round 2. And all this, with a broken kneecap. Now that's dedication. If it was wise is another thing, but lots of respect for him.

We finished early so we had a longer lunch break. At 2 we re-grouped on the hill for the A bracket. Before the warmup run we…

TMI Lillyhammer day 2

Today was qualifying day in Norway; timed qualifying that is. The system was tested the day before and all signs were good to go. Riders gathered on the hill at 9:00 for a warm-up run and then race down on an empty track with a transponder around their ankle.

We had some minor hiccups, but nothing serious (which had a lot of impact on the riders). Kevin Reimer set the quickest time with 1:42.705 in the morning, so in the afternoon session riders were keen on trying to beat Kevin's time, but most of them weren't up to it.

Dillon Stephens however did manage to beat Reimer in the 2nd run, setting a run of 1:42.185, shaving of about half a second of Kevin's time. After that you could see him hanging around the monitor, looking if someone would beat that time, but no one did, until the final run, where things got really intense and exciting.

Querin Ilmer was on fire here (as he was in Spain last week), riding 1:42's and 1:43's every run so he got very close. It…

TMI Lillehammer World Cup - Day 1

The day started early for the riders in Lillehammer. The busses went up at 8.15 because the first run was scheduled at 8.30 (already). Most riders made it up in time, so we started right away with sending riders down the hill.

The weather was cold, real cold, since the wind was blowing hard... but after lunch, the sun came out and spread some warmth among the riders, which was welcomed by all.

Due to a smooth organization on the top riders had the chance to do 13 runs in total and while riders were bombing down, the timing system was set up and tested well.

Riders were having fun on the hill, doing pack runs, cam runs and even some follow runs (with a car), but the hill took some casualties today; Byron Essert and Emil Olsson crashed and took themselves out and they (probably) won't be riding tomorrow.

This is what Jimmy Riha had to say about the track: "The pavement on the hill is smooth, with a nice slide surface.…
