Cirkus Tværs is not a traditional circus, but more of a "socially conscious, politically aware, multiculturally based" project, so it was not totally unexpected to find them at a may 1st rally in Tangkrogen.
Tværs means "contrary", quite a fitting name.
Tip: to locate trucks of particular interest to you, check my collections page, "truck collection" (www.flickr.com/photos/lavulv/collections/72157684190396672/ ) – here you will find all trucks organized in albums, by haulier (with zip-codes), year, brand and country.
Retirement age for trucks: many used trucks are offered for sale on international markets. If sold to a foreign buyer, this will not be listed in the danish motor registry, so a "retired" truck may or may not have been exported. In other words, the "retirement age" only shows the age, at which the truck stopped running on danish license plates.
