Svensson Final: Koltakov, Valeev, Ivanov, Khomitsevich (d) OVERALL (*=Wildcard) Ivanov 172, Koltakov 168, Valeev 162, Khomitsevich 158, Weber 89, S. Svensson 77, N. Svensson 74, Haarahiltunen 68, Toloknov 64, Ledström 58, Niedermaier 43, Shishegov 36, Ebner 31, Kolenkin* 22, Jell* 19, Zorn 19, Iwema 16, Tuinstra 13, Tani 9, Pletschacher 9, B. Schaap* 7, Serov* 2, Busch* 1 Not as big a crowd today, but some great racing. Danil won after his Semi Final Win, and sat back in the Final, confident of finishing. Koltakov took silver but the look on his face said it all. expect him to come out fighting next season. Good to see Valeev hauling back from a nightmare yesterday to finish with Bronze, and Khomitsevich fails to make the rostrum for the first time in eight years. Weber was the best of the Western riders but had a poor weekend compaired with Berlin and Inzell, Svensson's are just so good, and Martin Haarahiltunen showed what we missed in Inzell. Tomi Tani retired at the end of today's meeting, along with Simon Reitsma, and both took a lap of honour, to end their careers. Simon's 12 year old son has a bike so look out for Sebastian Reitsma riding for the Netherlands in the near future. Plenty of old riders in attendance, including Erik Gundersen, who is still a massive fan of the Ice. Sat in the Press room watching the racing from his scooter through the masive windows, then occasionally sitting out in the press seating for a crafty fag!

    Roelof Thijs Bokaal Heerenveen, 29.3.19 1 Konstantin Kolenkin (Russia), 2 Jimmy Olsén (Sweden), 3 Matti Isoaho (Finland), 4 Markus Jell (Germany), 5 Jasper Iwema (Netherlands), 6 Jimmy Tuinstra (Netherlands), 7 Simon Reitsma (Netherlands), 8 Albin Lindblom (Sweden), 9/10 Luca Bauer (Germany), Josef Kreuzberger (Austria) 11/12 Marc Geyer (Germany), Franz Mayerbüchler (Germany), 13/14 Jiří Wildt (Czech Rep.), Philip Lageder (Austria), 15/16 Andreas Lindblom (Sweden), Bart Schaap (Netherlands) 17/18 David Lizák (Czech Rep), Jimmy Hörnell (Sweden), 19/20 Niek Schaap (Netherlands)/ Pontus Fick (Sweden) 21/22 Jani Koivula (Finland), Robert Růžička (Czech Rep), 23/24 Robert Irving (GB), Kevin Arzl (Austria) Entertaining evening all round with the Dutch riders starting to make an impact at this level. Kolenkin was, as expected, unbeatable, although Jell and Olsen did challenge him in some heats. Got to feel sorry for the Schaap brothers, both suffering engine failures in knockout heats when in a position to move forward.in the meeting. Iwema fell in his semi final and failed to make the A final, Jell fell in the final, denying him a possible rostrum place. Good to see Erik Gundersen in attendance at the meeting, sat in his scooter in the press room, and enjoying the racing. Managed to get a photo of him and Nikolai Krasnikov together.

    Pictures from Saturday https://iancharlesphotos.net/160319-inzell-final-41 Pictures from Sunday https://iancharlesphotos.net/170319-inzell-final-42 I have this sneaking feeling that young Dinar Valeev could well walk away with a gold medal this year. But with four riders separated by 6 points it's going to go down to the wire!

    Possibly he will miss Heerenveen too from what I hear.I understand Franz Mayerbuchler is his replacement this weekend.

    Ice Speedway 2018/19

    Jell should have been given the Wild Card anyway as the German Champion. I know Bauer is the local rider, and puts bums on seats, but if he never qualified (having pulled out with illness - I know), then he shouldn't be given the wild card at either Berlin or Inzell in the first place. I'd wager he'll struggle this weekend. Rant over. So apart from the usual suspects (me, Jesper, Steve and Buxton Tiger) who else is going to Inzell?

    Berlin now on line with FIM TV Spoke with him yesterday, he's still waiting but plans to drive there when he gets confirmation.

    Ice Speedway 2018/19

    Jimmy Tuinstra will replace Martin Haarahiltunen at Inzell, and Tomi Tani will replace Andrei Shishegov. When I spoke to Martin on Sunday in Berlin he was hoping to be back for Heerenveen. Jimmy Tuinstra has the wild card for Heerenveen so if Martin is fit, it won't be a problem, however if he isnt will Bauer make the trip? Luca is riding on the Friday night, so he could be there if needed.
