I Ride: 2017 FX 450, 2006 Fe 496 Factory
WEC, Ostersund

Its looking very fine for our Husaberg buddies in Sweden this weekend:

http://live.abc-wec.com/

The factory team is 6/7/8 with Joakim, Bjorne then Valtteri.

This is a little detail of the event from Dan Watt

We're about to start day 1. Theres fresh snow on the ground but its not that cold out. Theres a lot of standing water in places so getting soaked will be inevitable. The only similarity to riding at home is that there is snow, other than that its deep ice ruts,and rough when the frost is broken though, oh and fast. Any way wish me luck.

Ok, just realized that the results above are after 8 tests, a ninth to come and then they will be official.

more later

Apparently there is 3 feet of snow on the level, a ton of high profile riders are dnfing simply because of the conditions, deep ruts and wet. Dylan Debel is having a good time, learning a lot and loving the 550 that he is riding. The Scandanavians are not taking names.

I would imagine there may be some wine drank around the berg pits on Sunday evening. Good luck to Dylan, Joakim, Bjorne, Valtteri, Daniel, Ricard and the rest of the berg riders.

Fry,

Did Watt get knocked out of the race at the beginning? I don't see his name in any of the tests?

There is no doubt that Valtterri "Bob" Salonen is a wicked rider. I can't wait for the WEC to return to Canada and the USA this year.

It is also great to see Joakim Ljunggren picking up where he left off last year and establishing himself as one of the fastest overall riders.

I wonder how Bjorne Carlsson feels about getting beat by his "student" Ljunggren. I remember Bjorne sayiing to us last summer that he had done too good a job of coaching Joakim!

Oh, I think that Bjorne is quite proud of his 'junior'. And Valtteri has returned to his 2005 form which earned him the factory ride in the first place. He is certainly on the gas as well.

Dan, our good friend, is having issues with the enviroment, and rode Sat with cold/frozen hands, something he suffers from here on cold trail rides. He finished the day way back, but from what I hear is unhurt, just rather chilled and not in that good of spirits. He'll be upset, him and Dylan are pretty close in speed, but its racing and sometimes that .... happens.
