DAY 2 - Saturday 19 november

Cold (-3) and cloudy weather, perfect for the race and the dogs. This second day of race was at least as good as yesterday and probably even better. All dogs and their mushers enjoyed once again the beautiful trails.
We were also very impressed by the media coverage of this event with several national and local televisions and the organizer Matjaž Ovsenek on the front page of the biggest national newspaper.
In most categories this second day confirmed and often reinforced the result from the first day. In Middle distance, Gerald Schinzel (A), Roman Habasko (CZ), Alexandre Rullier (F) and Harry Braeckmans (B) are still leading their respective categories, as do Jan Pederson (DK), Pascal Gerard (F), Alexander Serdjukov (A), Laurent Blot (F), Andrej Drabik (SK) and Bernd Kirstein (D) in Cart.
The same situation takes place for the bike men classes while in bike women the Austrian Eva Pfannhauser took the first place from the Belgian Virginie Brice and we can expect an exciting third day with less than 5 s difference.
In category Scooter class 2/1 dog, Sepp Brugger (A) with 1 Greenland dog won two places and is now leader .
Tomorrow the canicross classes will no more have a mass start but instead a 'chasing' start as they will start at the real time difference.
So more exciting!
This FISTC Cart Championship is really an almost perfect race.
