''Riga extreme'' slalom cup on 22nd August was organized by Riga city Sports department, where my father Gints now works.

The sun was shining, band ''PND'' was playing - we had a great day of racing!!!

This race was also the official debut for new slalom team from Latvia (more info soon...)!

The race started with Cyber slalom and the winner Gints Zommers almost managed to beat Janis Kuzmins Latvian record (Zommers did 8:47, Janis in Stockholm2005 - 8:45). I was second and upcoming slalom star, my trainingmate Marks Kiselovs was 3rd (it was his first podium in Latvian contests and he was very happy, because it is always so hard to race against much more experienced riders with better equipment...).

Second discipline was Tight slalom and in head-to-head finals I had to meet Marks already in the first round - I won the first run, he - the second, but I moved to semi-final. In final I beat Zommers by 0,34 sec. 3rd was European amateur vicechampion in amateur tight - Ainars Jermacenko.

Then we had a high jump contest and Edzus Konosonoks won with 135cm (at the race day, it was his 40th birthday!!!)

In street discipline Rudolfs Hencels won.

The biggest intrigue was in 1km pumping contest on flat (we had about 4m startbox for push start and then we just pumped all 1km distance). After first 800 metres Zommers was leading, but then I decided to overtake him. I won, Kiselovs was second. In last metres Aivars Karklins lost his 3rd place for more experienced Jermacenko.

Of course, there was also a junior and begginer groups in slalom (Begginers top3: 1.Eliza Gailite, 2Anna Gailite 3 Iveta Medne).

After the race everybody were tired and happy that the end of slalom season is far from over ;)
