Brugge Eurocup small
Arriving in Brugge at 10.00
hours after a 4 hour drive. Bloso centre seems to be a combination
of sportsfields, a centre with horeca-facilities and sport-hotel,
a bike circle and an athletic track. The centre is located very
close to the old city centre of Brugge, so not bad for a eurocup.
After halve an hour I couldn't spot anything yet, no scooterists,
no nothing. So I started kicking in the direction of the athletic
stadium and there I found Lars Kessler and Hannu Vierikko having
a morning wake up, streching at the edge of the track, both in very
good mood. Hannu and Lars seem to be the centre of the event as
not much is happening yet around them? After some time a few people
arrive. No juniors show up for kids race (apparently no one had
entried for the kids race) and we get the scary feeling that the
3 of us will be THE participant field in the eurocup and so it seemed.
FEDES wants to be the national scooter organ in Belgium or at least
the task to host scootersport within their joblist. But during this
event it became very clear that it has no means yet to establish
contact with the Belgium scooterist. IKSA committee will have to
review this for 2003.
So at 11.30 the sprints started with Hannu as the winner and at
13.00 we had a 30 minute criterium on the athletic track in sunny
and dry conditions.
The facilities around the track were good, also no entry fee. Participants
got info-bagg with drinks and a T-shirt at the end of the event.
Also hotel conditions were good told Lars.
