Sweden Day Three


We’re in Mala! We finished our testing in Storuman today and drove to Mala late this afternoon. Testing went really well. Tucker rode with Johan LidmanĀ and Viktor Stenman who finished first and second in the Swedish Championship last weekend. It was great for Tucker to ride and test starts with them. Steve was on hand to check the RPM graph to make sure sled was set up for the holeshot. Paul took a hammer to a minor dent Tucker put in the tunnel. Overall, I think we’re ready to race!

Ch.4 did a feature on Tucker this evening. They will run a short story in the morning and a five-minute feature tomorrow night. I’ll make sure to add a link when it gets posted online. The lovely reporter even requested an interview with Steve and Paul. They are quite popular in Sweden.

Tomorrow the real fun begins. There is technical inspection in the afternoon with practice in the evening. Tucker is busy all day with media events, interviews and a press conference. It sounds like he’ll get to drive a Porsche on an ice track. That’s what I call a cool media event!

We would like to send a huge thank you to Mikael Yngvesson from Yngvessons Maskin AB (an Arctic Cat dealership) in Storuman. He let us move into his shop for the week, lent us a trailer, tools, etc. We are so thankful for him, his family and employees. We will never forget them! Mikael runs a great business. If you ride an Arctic Cat in Sweden, you need to visit Yngvessons Maskin AB.
