Cracking nights racing yesterday, and Koltakov was World Champion in Heat 13. He then went out in Heat 20 and broke down, meaning he's dropped 8 points overall. Johann Weber crashed in his first heat and was bruised but he's back this afternoon.

OVERALL (*= Wildcard)

Valeev 98,

Kononov* 22, 
Bauer 15, 
Pletschacher* 11, 
Niedermaier* 10, 
Ebner 10, 
Schaap* 4 
 

And thats it! Koltakov had dominated this seaason, and no-one really came close. Ivanov looked a bit miffed with another silver, whilst Khomitsevich dropped points on his rival when he took out the bales in one heat. Biggest revelation was Martin Haarahiiltunen who is the most exciting western rider since Franky Zorn burst onto the scene. In one heat today he held Koltakov in second for a lap or so, before Dimon passed him. He isn't afraid of the Russians and his success is dragging in new Swedes to the Ice. Iwema had a nightmare home GP, but he needs to sort his bikes for next season, Schaap got to find out how good the ISG series is, and talking to him, he wants to be in it. 

On a personal note, it was good to catch up with many of the British and other old riders there, and to catch up with Steve again, who braved the dark streets of Heerenveen on a push bike. Hope the pics with Dimon came out well.
