Yes,very good

 

Just have to look jealously on at the weather.Crisp and cold,unlike our winter here in north Germany has just been wet and grey and now all the rivers are flooding.bah!!!

It is the same unpleasant weather here in Bavaria. We had lots of rain in the last few days, and the rivers have high water. Today was supposed to be sunny, but right now it it still grey and foggy outside.

Koltakov looking a class apart at this stage of the season

 

Great race from Kononov to win,when it looked at one stage as if he might be relegated to 3rd!!!

 

Koltakov beats Khomitsevitch by the length of the straight to prove my point!!!

Koltakov is seeded to the Ice Speedway Gladiators as defending Champion, so the next 4 are nominated as Russia's representitives in the Qualifiers. There was a run off between Karchintsev and Kononov, where Kononov crashed, and was excluded. Karachintsev is now in the ISG, whilst Kononov should be the nomination for the European Championship along with the winner of the U-21 Championship.

Seeing as Makarov was riding the inside line,i can only think at one stage he was with both wheels inside the line.Hard to see,but that is often the cause of an exclusion 

That was the only possible reason I could come up with but it was hard to tell from the footage. Thanks.

Just seen that Luca Bauer is going to be riding with an Italian licence this season!!! Trouble with the German federation.Just like his father then? :P

Seems the trouble stems from last year when he wasn't nominated for the EM after being the only german rider to compete the year before.

 

The german nominations for the word championship quails are

Ylitornio

Niedermaier,Busch and Pletschacher

 

Örnsköldsvik

G.Bauer and Hans Weber

See Luca Bauer is in the Ö-vik line-up,but not sure on what licence,if Italian or not.But going on his form over the weekend in Sweden,i don't expect him to trouble the top riders

Watched the weather for the first time in 4 months. Looking good for Ytornio. Temp has been -3 to -15 or so and from now on between -5 to -10. So the ice should hold. First year they had problems with lack of snow, now they’ve been swimming in it. But no new snow anymore so shouldnt be a problem. Looking forward for the drive ... 

 

EDIT Should have stayed quiet. Sunny -19 for the meeting.

EDIT2 ...and to the reason I dont follow forecasts anymore: its now cloudy -15 for the meeting.

He'll probably scowl at everyone. Oh hang on that's his normal expression!

Yes,but presumably now it will be a stylishly cool Italian scowl instead of that nasty cold German one:P

So looking at the results my earlier post seems to have gathered momemtum... Iwema being 7th at Ylitornio gives him the right for one. He wasnt the fastest but rode clever and bold lines and wasnt afraid to mix it. Also he's the kind of rider that the series need, being young, athletic looking and from a "new" yet traditional ice racing country.

Iwema certainly impressed last year in Heerenveen, and yes a Wild Card would be good for him.  I would suggest that the series Wild cards should be Iwema and Stefan Svensson as both finished 7th on 9, although I think Bauer may try to claim a place on his past record. 

On the plus side, EisHans and Martin Haarahiltunen qualifying is good. (mind you I'm glad I use Photo Mechanic for captioning my pics as I can't even pronouce Haarahiltunen's name, let alone keep spelling it!)

Bauer going to throw his toys out of the Pram if he doesn't get a WC? :D
