Monday Day 1: Qualifying

This morning was used for the qualifying runs. 5 heats were planned with a lot of riders in them. Some bikes fell over, but most qualified. Todd was very fast with 72 mph (115km/u). That is a new qualifying record.

Sjaak and Erika taped Jan-Marcel in and started him, Dave drove our chase car. Jan-Marcel went nicely through the traps, sailing a bit, for his chain came off during the run. He was timed with 39.4 mph.

A new unfaired handbike record was set by Liz. Also a new Junior trike record by Florian.

Jan-Marcel was not fast enough to do the 5 mile run, so he will have to qualify tomorrow morning.
