EC Thusis - 27.04. 2003

Thusis openings event eurocup 2003 (scootering) | results The race from Thusis to Chur was quite fast this year due to a good tailwind and warm weather (+18 C). There were participants from 5 European countries, Finland, Germany, Chech Republic, Swizerland and Italy. As many times before, the Finns were the fastest in the mens class. Both Finns, Tomas and Ville came under the old route record from Wolfgang Seibel in year 2000.

Also the womens winner, Andrea Hammer from Germany made a new route record for women. Direct after the start there was a steep downhill with max. speed almoust 70 km/h and then a sharp right turn. Tomas did that corner better than the other in the leading group and gained a 20m gap. Tomas, who has top-speed as his best strength, used this gap and made it larger in the fast first 5 kilometers with tail-wind and some downhills. In the middle of the track there were a long quite steep uphill where Ville almost catched Tomas again. The distance between the first two was very small until Ville at last catched Tomas at about 20 km, but the last 5 kilometers were again fast with slight downhill and tail-wind and Tomas did the same thing as in the beginning and finished 9.3 seconds before Ville. The fight for the third place was very hard.

There were 4 kickers in 15 seconds and Igor Ricci from Italy won this fight. There were two newcomers, who did very well and ended up in the top six. Jan Stepan from Check Republic (Prague) was fifth and Tilo Lier from Germany (Bönningheim) was sixth. These two can become dangerously fast in the future. In the womens class Andrea Hammer had no hard competitors, and had no problems to win as last two years. The results and the story was given to you from Tomas and Ville.
