A great forest by name “Almindingen” in the middle of the island Bornholm is surrounding a 1000 m. long horse trotting track, where some motorcycle races have been ridden.
The – up to then – greatest and ever best meeting took place over two days on Saturday and Sunday august 20. & 21. 1949 attended by several thousand fans.
The Swede Niels Rydberg from Kalmar won ahead of his fellow Lennart Løfkvist from Simrishamn.
A third Swede Stig Silver crashed and got hospitalized with a concussion.
The Bornholmian riders didn’t get much, due to lack of training.
