Men’s Racing In Zug: Top-20

Here is what Bill Begg wrote along with some description of the men’s race in World Cup Topics for 2008 about the top-20 finishers at last weekend’s Zug WIC/ SIC;

1/ Joey Mantia, Lugino Answer – truely is the World superstar, walked the finish & led his new team to a great victory.

2/ Luca Saggioratto, Rollerblade MPC – big Sagg handled all, but the Superstar, no doubt will dothe business for Rollerblade MPC.

3/ 6 times winner max ( Houdini ) Presti, Lugino Answer – well with Joey missing & not all races a bunch sprint, plus no committements for Worlds, who is to say that it will not be MAX number 7 WIC

4/ Andres Munoz, Matter World Inline Center -This guy is very fast & very Strong, but when Isolated from his team, must ensure he is not dragging a chain for a free ride, when his teamates are up the road.

5/ Francesco Zangarini, Rollerblade MPC – the Dancing man, knows how to cover & follow Saggioratto & thats what he is there for.

6/Diego Rosero, Rollerblade MPC – The experienced Diego showed his hand, perhaps he is destined to try & be a breakaway king, this year along with Iten as they have Sagg for the fast stuff.

7/ Claudio Naselli, Lugino Answer – Twoyears ago at the road Euroeans in the road 200 T/T, his last 100 was right on Dugento & ahead of everyone else, he is very fast & being given a good lead out & in the group chain, always a danger.

8/ Yann Guyader, Powerslide Alessi, the young Napolean was in the front at about 400 meters , in fact too far out even for him, I am sure the plan was not to end up swamped by Lugino Answer & Rollerblade MPC.

9/ Harry Vogel, Lugino Answer- Nice comeback to the big time Harry, who had cut short his promising Inline Career, but a nice ride in a strong team had him right up there, a top ten in this company,is almost the equivilent of a World Podium.

10/ Antonio Ruales, BONT IDRD Colombia Positiva – first WIC race a top 10, an excellent result,one of the many young South American Tigers, hunting scalps in the WIC.

11/ Riccardo Bugari, Lugino Answer – Yes all 5 of the team in the top 11, I raced his dad at the 1975 Worlds,dragged him out of the Koen Rucus at European Junior Marathon, great that his mum & dad werepresent to see a dream Debut in the WIC Born in 1991 he was the youngest finisher in the top 50.

12/ Carlos Puerto, BONT IDRD Bogata Positivo, like Teamate Ruales another 17 or 18 year old Tiger, hunting for a top finish.

13/ Matteo Amabili, Powerslide Alessi World – an experienced competitor without the big sprint, is always there abouts in the Mix.

14/ Wayne Begg, World Inline Center Spirotiger – another consistant performance, always found in the top 30, pity teamate Luca Presti, was not around to come off, as he had tried a final 3 km getaway.

15/ Peter Micheal, Matter World Inline Center-left a man short in there committed team run, come to an end short of theline.

16/Kalon Dobbin, Matter World Inline Center – Left facing the breeze far to early, a true World Top rung sprinter 100 meters fromhome should be his windburn territory, not 300 out.

17/= Two Venezuela skaters from BONT Bacata team, Alexander Bastidas & Carlos Salazar, a top 20 in the competion in Zug, would normally relate to a top10 in other times.

19/Ben Alchin, World Inline Center Spirotiger, good to see Ben has recovered from a serious Ankle operation & this tough uncompromising skater back racing.

20/ Kepa Caballero, Powerslide Alessi Euro Team, he is usually always in he top 20 mix, when he competes, butunfortunately neverusually gets the opportunity for a full season‘.
