2008 Worlds Gijon- Photos- Senior Marathons

The marathon is finished.

Men’s Marathon: New Zeland’s Shane Dobbin won the men’s marathon in a 3-skater breakaway ahead of Julien Levrard (France) was 2nd and an Argentina skater was 3rd. There was a bunch sprint for 4th. I managed to roll with the lead group of about 50 skaters for 12 of 13 1/2 laps. I finished with a small group in 1:04:30, maybe 1-minute back from the main bunch.

Women’s Marathon: Colombia’s Liana Holguin won the women’s race in front of Germany’s Sabine Berg in a bunch sprint.

Canadian News: Travis Shaw and Alex D’mello fell in the marathon. They’re both fine. Chelsea Parry and Leah Kaluta started the women’s marathon but were lapped out.

Thank you: Diedrick Hol who sold many MPC storm surge wheels as soon as it started raining right before the men’s marathon. I bought some- thanks a lot! When the course dried, the wheels were incredibly slow.

Skin Suits: There was another yearly skin-suit trading romp. I got a Spain, Mexico, and Italy suit.

Party: It’s tonight. Banquet, followed by dinner, and then disco. Buses take athletes home at 4am.
