Thursday evening it was time to honor the first World Champions! The Markaður filled with fans to cheer on their favorite riders and watch them receive their prizes.
We started with the adult pace test. Elvar Þormarsson with Fjalladís frá Fornusöndum can proudly take the 1st prize to Iceland with a great result of 8.92. The world champion young rider also comes from Iceland: Benedikt Ólafsson with Leira-Björk frá Naustum III scored 8.00.
The pace race 250 meters had just ended right before the ceremony and the brand new winners were able to go straight to the podium.
