Sunday was an other gorgeous summer day. As was yesterday for that matter. Sunday + 24 C. Yesterday + 26 C. Blue skies. Not a cloud in sight. Okay, back to Sunday. We decided to go to Hyvinkää, some 60 kilometers from our place, where was arranged a motorbike event during the weekend. Off-Road and trial on Saturday. Scramble/motocross on Sunday. We thought it good to the end the summer at an motocross event as we in the end of May started the summer going to a motocross race.
This time it was not an official race. More of an event for drivers to get to drive together and for everyone interested to spend a nice day watching and getting together. It was held at the old Hyvinkää track. So different from many tracks I have been to. It was winding up and down in the woods. Sometimes very narrow. No grandstand. Impossible to have an overview over the entire place. It even was a bit difficult to move around in the terrain. Despite all. It was a nice day. The atmosphere, the excitement, the motors roaring, the smell, the dust, the pebbles, the thrill, the skill.
You may think why we, two retired persons, close to the seventies keep going the these kind of events. Thing is our son used to drive motocross for quite many years. Starting when about nine or ten. Hi did not race just driving because he liked it so much. That is where my interest for the sport comes from. I know my husband has liked it from a very early age and it for long was his dream to have a bike of his own to drive. His dream never became reality. The closest to his dream he came was/is helping our son when driving. He actually took up driving again recently after not driving for so many years.
What a coincidence ! As in the end of May also this time it collided with Formula 1 race. So for that reason we did not stay till the end as I wanted to go home to watch the F1 live. 🙂
