A big restaurant is in between the two sand arenas. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.
The arenas are surounded by the mountains. The clouds were low on Friday afternoon. The gras ring to the right and one of the sand rings straight ahead. The stands were still empty on Friday, but they normally get crowded by Sunday. One big sand arena is divided into two separate warm-ups for the two sand arenas. The gras ring has its own warm-up. Riders from all over the world are competing in Oliva Nova.
