Bridgestone T30 …

Performed even better than the BT23 I used last year. Probably the best wear pattern ever !

Action …

Not even the girls can multitask while on the track – full focus required 🙂

Finally …

Getting out on the first riding pass 🙂

The Track …

Great layout and well maintained. This year there was two small sections/patches of brand new tarmac looking wet and slippery, but there was no problems riding on it.

Morning briefing …

And sorting the participants in 9 groups.

Mandatory bike check ..

For everyones safety.

Mestersvinger 2014 …

We have been looking forward ti this day for months now. Arriving in Sweden after 250 km rain was no fun, but the weather looks good today 🙂

173 km on the track today :-)

Even though I was riding in the fastest group with most bikes having +50 hp more than the BMW, fuel consumption was as low as 6,2 liter/100 km. The F800 is amazingly economical, and still fast and flickable enough to follow stronger bikes on the track. Great day 🙂

Battle scars …

A Yamaha Fazer 1000 had a front wheel slide on the damp morning surface and ended in the gravel bed. The rider was tough and patched the bike up with Duct tape and continued in the fast group for the rest of the day. Respect !

The F800 is doing a good job …

Nice even wear pattern on the rear tyre.

Not allowed on the track …

Due to oil leaks. Probably not the best track bike either 🙂

Concentrating hard …

To hit the correct line as per the master rider’s instructions.

Ooops …

This guy was probably not winning his race …

Morning briefing

As usual everyone is quiet and paying attention at the briefing session.

Late arrival to Knutstorp

The accident in Denmark meant that we arrived rather late at the ring. No issue actually – we are just going to sleep and prepare for the training tomorrow.

Not part of the plan :-(

As we we’re riding towards Sweden on mostly wet country roads, a member of our group had the front wheel losing it’s grip on the road surface. The result was a long slide into a granite road shoulder, a broken leg and a ruined bike.
