    Finnish Trek Enduro series, Round 1, Messilä

    Last weekend was the starting of the Finnish Trek Enduro series 2013. Very nice weather and good trails and atmosphere resulted in a new participant record for Finnish enduro events, total of 202 racers yesterday...

    Also nice to see some familiar faces on starting line and participants from Russia, Ireland and US also. Matti Lehikoinen took the win over reigning champion Ari Kurvinen and Sauli Hjerppe.

    I heard that Matti used to have problems in earlier races (last year?): crossing the finishing line so fast that the system didn't register it

    Looks like "Itsok" took some photos there.
    I like the shot he posted at Trek Enduro Series 2013 - Sivu 6
    (there's more photos linked there. Copyrights apply: private use only)

    Problem Matti had with the timing was on this years "warm up race" in Calpis Bikepark. We didn't quite expect that speeds would increase so fast at the finish of stage 1, which seemed to cause problems for Matti and couple others too...


    "some" more pics from yesterday:

    Glad to see Matti back to racing... he's had some major bad luck in DH with injuries... Very cool to see him kick ass in enduro!
