utrecht qualification race 2

saturday , about 100 skaters start again for 100laps in utrecht for the 2nd race of the qualification week end race.
the race has been stopped 23 laps to go , due to a bad fall of 2 skaters...

it seems it could have a been a sprint finish as attack was not really hard , and skater not so motivated to breakaway on this heavy ice in utrecht.

next week end, skater will get point also for individual ranking, so the battle should be harder. this race is gonna be "live" in SBS6 in netherland.
