Since there was no race for a while here in Norway, we decided to try our luck in the Danish enduro championship.Denmark is just a quick ferry away From Norway, and well known for their great hospitality and good food (and beer).
Since this was a sandrace we decided to go one day earlier for some training. We went to Esbjerg mx track, a very nice sandtrack. I had a small accident there that almost ended my plans for the Sunday main race, since i messed up my achilles pretty bad.
Before this race i had installed TwinPegs™ prototypes on my GasGas enduro bike, and i dare to say they really saved the day. Because of the TwinPegs™ and the way they support the ankle i could focus on the race rather than worry about causing more damage to the leg. Passing other riders at high speeds while standing totally stable on TwinPegs™, is good fun. Ride faster further!
My class, 40+, was racing 3 hour in the loose sand. Very fun, but also very hard! I finished at sixth place in the class, something i am satisfied with. There were 87 riders in total, my overall result was 24.th place. The great photo is taken by the Danish photographer “Pigen med kameraet”.
