At the close of the ice skating season there’s one last time to shine for the ice stadium. After all the ice skate races the final act on the ice is wrecking the layers of ice for real. Fast motorcycles, big spikes and a lot of adrenaline! Welcome to Ice Speedway racing…

Velodrom D’Horta training

Yesterday was supposedly the last in a series of warm summer days in Barcelona and with that in mind it seemed a good idea to head back to the Velodrom D’Horta for a few more photos of the training session as my first attempt was lacking a group of cyclists.

NK Veldrijden / Cyclocross in Surhuisterveen

This weekend the Dutch cyclocross championships were held in Surhuisterveen. It’s been a bit of a busy weekend for me so unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend both days and as it turned out nog even all the races on Sunday, so I was happy to at least be able to see the last race.

Gouden Pijl criterium in Emmen

Fresh out of the Tour the France he raced and won the Boxmeer criterium, raced in Surhuisterveen, won the Clasica San Sebastian in Spain and then raced in Rio at the Olympics. And then he came back the the Netherlands as soon as he could to race in the Gouden Pijl criterium yesterday.

Criterium of Surhuisterveen

The Tour de France 2016 is over now and traditionally that means that criteriums (or crits) are being raced. As usual the first one is in Boxmeer, that was Monday immediately after the last stage of the Tour. A day later the second race was held in the north of the Netherlands: Surhuisterveen and as that was close and I finally was in a position to go, I went. It was also the only one that Chris Froome would do (that will be because of preparation of the Olympics I think).

Superbike Race 1 on Saturday

I don’t know what brilliant idea is behind the new schedule of the Superbike races, but apparently there’s a race 1 on Saturday and a race 2 on Sunday now. Not my ideal setup, but what can you do? So without too much rest I was at the track today to shoot the first race of the weekend (and for me this year).
