<P>European Art Touches Bycicle Men race carring their wifes for BEER! By Mohammad Bakhrieba It quite interesting to learn, that finish men found a creative way to win good amount of beer every year. Started in the 19th century by Herkko Rosvo-Ronkainen, or Ronkainen the Robber. There are many stories around it how- ever, the most funny one is that in the pack ages some people used to steal others women and it become their own! In Sonkajärvi 1992, was the first modern carry women competition took place, a race where men compete carrying women, preferably their own wife. Through obstacles men has to run fast enough to cross the race and win the carried women weight amount of beer. The women have to hang on very well not to fall who may hang-on upside down, piggyback or firemans carry. The track is, roughly, 250 meters long and has one water obstacle and two dry obstacles. A carried woman has to be at least of 17 years old and of 49 Kgs weight, thats good amount of beer for the year!
