RED BULL ROMANIACS – DAILY DIARY
It’s the Red Bull Romaniacs people – get ready! Enduro21 are already in Sibiu so we took a wander round and checked out what was going on…
Head To Head
Even in the paddock Jarvis and Walker are facing off. Billed as the two favourites, we’re guessing the pressure will be fairly intense under these awnings from Tuesday onwards.
Jarvis’ Husky TE 300
Wow… It was hard not to walk past Graham Jarvis’ factory prepped Husqvarna TE 300 and not take a second glance. One of the first Husky’s off the production line, this bike will be the one thing every competitor will fear more than the track itself. Can Jarvis make it five wins – we’ll find out at the end of the week!
A smoke in the mouth and a chainsaw in the hand – this is Romaniacs!
The Boys In Green
A cuppa tea and having the craic – Ireland are in Romania! Six strong – the boys in green are looking forward to their first stab at the Red Bull Romaniacs.
Chris Birch is in the house. The Kiwi has been away from the Hard Enduro limelight since pretty much Romaniacs last year. But as former winner of the race, he’s one of the most experienced guys in the paddock and he didn’t travel halfway around the world to just ‘make up the numbers’ either.
If architecture is your thing then Sibiu is right up your street. Surrounded by a huge stonewall, the inner parts of the city are a maze of narrow streets and some fine old buildings.
Behind The Walls
Steadily rising from the ground, the Romaniacs Prologue is taking shape.
To the left is one of the most talked about obstacles of the Prologue – the Helter Skelter. It’s got everyone curious.
If you’re gonna dream big then you’re gonna need some big tools to build it. Constructing a course like the Prologue requires a couple of trucks, a forklift or two, a small army of workers and a whole lot of wood.
Building the Red Bull Romaniacs Prologue – sure it’s all in a days work!
We’ll keep this feed updated as the week unfolds so stay tuned here…
