Report from Ville | Great race in
It was very interesting to take part in Thusis-Chur 25km scooter race.
I am happy that I have been there. My trip was quite tough but it
was absolutely worth to do! It was well organized race with 350 runners
and 17 lady-kickers and 29 men-kickers, so the race fulfill IKSA Euro-cup
criterias ( ten participants from the home country). 2 participants
came from Finland, 4 from Germany and 40 from Swizerland. Scooter-start
was 5min before running-start.
The start was from Thusis center and there was a lot off spectators.
Race organisation had a leading car and the course was well-marked.
Nice views and tough terrain as you could read in Hannu´s rapport.
Some part off the route was really cross-country-route. We had a good
discussion in the evening with Paul Brugge. Enthusiastic Kickbiker
Peter Smit email@example.com from SUI (born in Holland) was great
interpreter/ translator and he had good ideas of how to develop Thusis
race. I don´t speak German. We spoke about the race-course (some
part off the route was not so good but still okey if you can handle
your bike,( stones, rocks, sand, mud) the course was made for runners),
also about the race information and contact-information, there is
something they can do better for 200, get some information to IKSA
pages, own web-pages etc. and then the price-politic. Now there was
no price ceremonies or prices for the best scooterists (exept the
Kickbike millennium for the Kickbike-cup). Thusis race was also “motion”-
event. Every participant got a rose, something to eat and massage
if needed. That was good! We talked also about the calendar. It is
quite early off the season and Engelberg is preparing in late July
for good race too. We talked about next year and EURO-cup status.
Two EURO-cup races in Swizerland can be too much. So there is still
many things to do and to think about for next year, but the race has
a good potential to be even better international race in future!!!Some
