    Fondest memory: While the races are quite serious stuff for the particpants, for most spectators it's not much more than a most exciting day out.

    Going out with friends, having a beer, another one, eating chips, enjoying the sunshine and...watching minibikes, Solex bikes and crossbikes racing through the village streets!! It hardly couldn't have been better!

    Fondest memory: One of the highlights of the Kwadendamme races was the minibike race!

    These exciting motorbikes do have about the same properties as the big bikes, but are of course smaller in size. The lenght should be maximum 1 meter, while the hight should not exceed 50cm.(!!!).

    As they made their way at 70 kph on the circuit through the village, with some sharp bends as an extra attraction, it was a hilarious spectacle for me and the other 2000 something spectators...

    Fondest memory: The big highlight for me at the Kwadendamme races were the Solex races.

    Solex is the legendary brandname for a motorised bike that was produced in The Netherlands from 1948-1967. They have typenames like Peppertin or Swanneck (after the shape of the frame), Koffertje (small toolbox) and OTO.

    Nowadays there are a lot of Solex-clubs in the Netherlands. Solex fanatics look endlessly for original assecoires, cloths and spare parts.

    The races like in Kwadendamme -although a regional championship-are before everything else fun and show...and it was entertaining indeed!
