Status Report: Tank 'drag races' cyclists
"Sasha" has emailed me this. During the Arctic Race in Norway the Setermoen military camp decided to surprise the athletes and sent out a Leopard 2A4 to drag race them:
Lieutenant Colonel Aleksander Jankov said:
"The cyclists knew they were passing through an army garrison at Setermoen and that they would be welcomed by soldiers of Brigade North," . "They probably did not expect a moving tank alongside the peloton."
Keep on being cool Norway.
