Our Russian distributor delivered 20 (twenty) red Urals to Sochi, rumored to be used at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. As expected everything is cloaked in secrecy, so we won't know until we know. The Opening Ceremony starts Friday, February 7, 11:00 am ET. It will be broadcast (unfortunately not live) on NBC at 7:30pm ET. Our Canadian readers can watch it live on CBC.
I'll be recording the opening ceremonies, even though they will have already happened due to time delayed broadcast here in the USA. For those in Canada who manage to watch it on CBC, drop me a line if you do see URAL sidecar rigs in the ceremony, will you?
Yes, there were URAL Sidecar Rigs in the Sochi Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony! Got these pictures from URAL through their Irbit Informer digital newsletter:
