Due to the heavy rain that started last night and until now still didn’t stop, and the bad forecast for the next few hours, the race director cancelled today’s qualifying for the Tierp Internationals, round one of the EDRS Pro Nordic Motorcycle Championship. Eliminations will start at 9 AM tomorrow. As the weather for tomorrow looks good, it will be an action packed day.
