Default Kongsberg Grand National

Last weekend I was among the organizers (and riders) in our local enduro, the Kongsberg Grand National.

105 racers between 5 and approx 60 years of age. The kids have a shorter track.
Some Gasgas bikes were there, but not a lot. My own '06 EC200, my son's '11 EC200 and a '14 EC250 factory replica comes to mind, but there might have been more.

The track is laid out in an army training field consisting of forest, mud, rocks, roots, footpaths, gravel roads and some fields around the army camp's houses. The loop is approx 8 km long. The complete race goes on for 2.5 hours.

I managed to go 7 laps, while the overall winner (Norway's best Beta rider) made 11 laps.

Lots of images (702 to be correct) can be fount at
