An epic race weekend, and some decent results too

Half an Adventure

My last post was written late at night, having had an unpleasant encounter down a steep icy driveway, with a rather unpleasant local man who eventually towed us out. I wish that had been the end of the adventures for the weekend, but over here the adventures never stop.

Tl;dr version: my car broke down and I raced OK.

Racing: This weekend was the second round of the Alpen Cup, the competition for all of Western Europe which sits one level down from World Cup, and is one of the most competitive Continental Cup series. The races were held at Oberwiesenthal, an 1100m high racecourse on the Fichtelberg, a mountain on the German-Czech border, in Saxony. This place, whilst having reasonably reliable snow, is notorious for its weather. More on that later…
