Åre Mountain Games - IGSA World Cup - Åre Sweden - Index
Story & My Clip & RJ's Movie

Well after a 4 year hiatus I'm back to traveling for Street Luge. My last trip out of the country was back in 2002 (Scotland).

I traveled with Chris McBride to Sweden for the Åre Mountain Games in July 2006. The trip brought back great memories of traveling Europe in the late 1990's and in the early 2000's. Chris and I started in Stockholm for a couple of days then drove to Åre (pronounced Ora) via the coastal town of Sandsvall.

The race organizers (Peter, Anders, Patrick and Daniel) did a great job as we had 3 days of free riding and then 2 days of racing.

Only one major injury - David Dean was out early with broken tendons in his right foot.

Åre is so far north that the sun "sets" at around 11:30 PM and then "rises" around 1:30 AM. I put set and rise in quotes because while the sun is technically below the horizon, it's never even remotely dark. This phenomenon messed most of us up as we stayed out all "night". Luckily our racing day didn't start until 4PM!
