Sunday update: At noon the rain is still pouring down and no blue sky anywhere around. It's unlikely we'll see any racing today. But let's not give up hope just yet.

Euros 2013, hybrid slalom

[August 3rd, 2013 by Jani Soderhall]

Plenty of sun and everyone got to skate. The day starting with quals for ams and masters to catch up with the Friday events, By lunch time Karl, Marco and Louis set the hybrid course which at first surprised quite a few, but in the end after some tweaking ended up being an excellent course that everyone seemed to lie. With courses set the racing was back to the highest priority race: the Pros doing their quals, then everyone else. With results secured for everyone the Pro finals could take center stage, and it did. The racing was very intense and the top rounds possibly among the best ever seen, with every head to head race being really exciting and with very close finishes. Three hundreds of a second seemed to be the norm.

The scare of the day was Janis taking a really bad fall in a practice run on a separate hill running into a longboarder, hitting his head and cracking his helmet. But despite advice to abstain he was up on his feet, new helmet on his head and ready to run the hybrid quals. After qualifying 5th it was back to a couple of hours rest for him, and once the finals got started late in the day, he showed that he wasn't going to let the fall ruin his race day, Janis then took out Mika, Viking all through to the final against Joe. Two close runs and a cone too much for Joe (two in total) meant that Janis was awarded the European title in Hybrid slalom.

The finals for Am, Women and Juniors were held Sunday morning while the GS was being prepared and due to shortage of time the Masters finals were cancelled and qualification results were used as final results. The winner of each category for the morning's race was of no surprise: Sebastian Vorholter won the Ams, Kathrin Sehl the Womens and Peter Matous the Juniors. All three being well ahead of their opponents.

Euros 2013 - First day, Tight slalom

[August 2nd, 2013 by Jani Soderhall]

Image1

Despite the heavy rain all morning racing eventually got underway with the Pro's warm up, qualifying and finals followed by the ladies and finally juniors. The Pro course was extremely fast, not technically difficult, but tight and fast making it hard to manage given the smooth fast surface of Hog Hill and the 64 cone length. About half of the Pro's double DQ'd leaving only 12 to battle it out in the eliminations. With so many DQs some of the usual top riders were simply out already in the quals. The head to head racing was awesome with several exciting rounds offering some surprises. Thiele eliminated, Gluschko advancing, Dominik eliminated etc. After a spectacular fall by Janis Kuzmins just after the finish line in a race against Mika and a never ending protest by Mika regarding cone counts, the finals were between Mika and Viking. Viking won the first Euro 2013 trophy, probably on better physical strength than father. A bruised Janis and Joe battled it out for third place.

Tight slalom, Pro top 8:

1. Viking Hadestrand, SWE
2. Mika Hadestrand, SWE
3. Janis Kuzmins, LAT
4. Joe McLaren, USA
5. Dominik Kowalski, GER
6. Ferdinand Lindner, GER
7. Oleg Glushko, RUS
8. Paul Price, GBR

In the ladies Kathrin took a bad fall, also after the finish line but could carry on just like Janis. With 8 women present it was among the best starting field we've seen in a European event in a long time; Lienite, Natalya, Anna and Eliza Gailitis, Ella, Erika and Tezzan. After the two qualifying rounds Kathrin was in the lead ahead of Lienite. In the juniors the top contenders were Petr Matous, Zaccaria DiGiorgio, Vitek Hromadko and Toms Dreiblats. After the qualifying of these two categories the race had to be stopped due to the site closing.There are chances the eims of these two categories will continue late Saturday, or late Sunday, weather permitting.

Women, qualifying, top 6:

1. Kathrin Sehl, GER
2. Lienite Skaraine, LAT
3. Natalya Dudina, RUS
4. Anna Gailite, LAT
5. Irene DiGiorgio, ITA
6. Eliza Gailite, LAT

Amateurs and Masters had a very long day waiting and waiting and the disappointment was big among these participantswhen the race day ended. Tomorrow's racing will start with the continuation of the tight for Ams and Masters (only quals) which will then be followed by the hybrid slalom. Unlike in the tight the hybrid and GS will be run using the same courses for all categories hopefully giving less DQs and smoother event management.

Juniors, Qualifying results, top 4:

1. Petr Matous, CZE
2. Toms Dreiblats, LAT
3. Zaccaria DiGiorgio, ITA
4. Vitek Hromadko, CZE
