-10C and 50cm plus of snow. That’s a Finnish Winter Downhill Race for you.
Dirt reader Jimmy Doyle who lives in Finland was at the first round of the Finish Winter series in Messilä about 100 km north of Helsinki.
Jimmy reckoned conditions were great, about -10C, 50cm+ of the white stuff and not too icy, just fun, fast and tricky, some times a challenge to keep her upright.
Jimmy says: “If anyone fancies an office day out I will put on a winter race on the 13.03, it will be FUN! one run on the DH bike and then a 4 cross on Stigas (snow sledge, click link to see what I mean: www.bossbi.com/bike/stiga/stiga.php , I smell an ambulance)”
