Really powerful pace horses came from the snow storm through the Ölfus arena. The flying pace competition was extremely exciting. It were the young pace riders Valdimar Bergstað and Prins frá Efri-Rauðalæk and Ragnar Tómasson and his horse Isabel frá Forsæti who went pacing through the arena at exactly the same time, 5.68 seconds. But as Ragnar did not quite manage for Iisabel to pace in their second sprint, it was Valdimar and Prins were winners. In third place was Sigurbjörn Bárðarson riding Flosa frá Keldudal and went on flying pace through the arena at 5.9 seconds.
"The Flying pace“ shield was given to the Árbakki/Norður-Götur team.
