Hello to Europe, we are just in the middle of our scooter seazon. The third race of total 6 league races took it´s place in a legendary ŠUMAVA region. This is the most traditional czech race, which takes all the competitors back to the roots of our scooter sport (Alpo, Thomas and other Fins confirms this for sure:)

Again, it was a double weekend for Ladislav Provod and Martina Smitkova, and so they have the overall lead in the league as well. On Saturday hilly 27km race it was a battle for the second place between Petr Pesta and Richard Jisl (Kidokai) and finally Petr did it. In the woman field Patricie Kadlecova suprisingly beated Marketa Pestova and so did she in Sunday uphill time trial. May be, another rising czech scooter star??? Later, it was a nice warm afternoon and as the sun became to disappear behind the hills, barrels of beer started to be even emptier then ever efore. Slouder, stars, fun and memories - this is what Sumava race is about. The night was pretty long.

Sunday 8km uphill time trial is really tough espacially when one considers the night party. It was another second place for Petr Pesta 10 seconds ahead of Jan Vlasek. Ladislav Provod won the race in advantage of 1,10min!!! The Czech Rollo league pauses now for some month and half. Then on 20.7.2008 the Eurocup race dones to the Czech Republic and we ingote all of you to join us just month efore the World Champs. Come to check your actual kicking form.
