When temperatures run in the high 80's F or over 30 C, a nice big tent gives a nice "cool" shadow...
Five bikes in the team, almost only Yamaha's, but a clever dude has brought along a Suzuki ;-)
Helge Spjeldnes, team chief, races both the R6 in 600 Production and a R1 in Superbike
Even Champions have to work from time to time, here gasing up the R1, while a way to lazy team member
is looking on......
Helge Spjeldnes on a Yamaha R1
The Superbike class and the 600 Production class races only had
a few minutes between them, so there was only a short cool down for Helge
before he was heading out again...
A few minutes of rest, some fluids and a banana, and then he was ready
for Final in the 600 Production race...
Helge Spjeldnes on a Yamaha R6
With both a personal best and the racetrack record of any 600 ccm bike
he can finaly relax. His lap time record, 58,4 seconds... :-))
The winner, Helge Spjeldnes, in the first round of the National Championship in 600 Production...:-))))
This will be Espen Skjoenhaug's first Road Race Final, also on a Yamaha R6...
With a red flag on the 17th round he finished number 14 with a best lap of 1.03,39 seconds,
not to bad for his first race, and the bike is still in one piece :-))
Kawasaki t-shirt Tom riding a Sv-1000 from Suzuki on the road (super great bike ;-) by the way)
was one of the guys who made this weekend great at Rudskogen Raceway....
After landing a moderate wheelie this guys clip-on snapped right off, he keps it safe
and did not go down, good job :-)
