Tractor Racing

Traktorcross (as it's spelled here- the Norwegians don't use the letter c unless it is a foreign word) is a new sport to me. Juliette and I were driving south of town this weekend and came upon some 300 folks standing in the bitter cold watching tractors speed around a field marked with barrels and flags. In the bottom photo is the winner- one Thomas Hansen!
Norwegians are a hardy bunch... BRRR.

  1. Interesting. I did not experience the Norwegian "dirtball factor" during my visit. Guess if you really want to understand a place, you have to live there!
