Arena 2009- Construction Under Way

Have fun exploring these links about Arena 2009;

Reported elsewhere that construction has started on a new inline training facility (in Germany). It will include a roofed banked track with a camera mounted on a rail along the track, so a skater’s moves can be constantly recorded and analyzed. 3000 seats for spectators at meets. A road course around a lake. Scott Arlidge is manager.

Roller En Ligne’s Interview With Tony Mogis- Mans 24 Hours Organizer

Check out Roller En Ligne’s interview with Tony Mogis. He is one of the organizers of the Mans 24 Hours. The interview, which gives an insider’s perspective on the event, is important at this time because of the event’s recent date shift to June 27th-28th-

Un site mondialement reconnu, foulé habituellement par quelques privilégiés, un concept unique d’événement rollers par équipe, qui fait que chaque année les participants prennent plaisir à passer un week-end convivial entre potes.
C’est un week-end qui laisse des souvenirs que l’on évoque durant toute l’année qui suit. Puis on y retourne avec autant de plaisir.
C’est aussi un défi sportif, individuel et collectif. En terminant l’épreuve, on a partagé une belle aventure avec ses amis. C’est fort émotionnellement.

Report- Long Track Speed Skating Canadian Junior Championships/ Canada Cup #2

Speed Skating Canada shared a report from day 2 of the Canadian Long Track Speed Skating Junior Championships held in Richmond, BC- Ivannie Blondin and Guillaume Blais-Dufour make history at Canadian Junior Championships

Ivanie Blondin (Ottawa, ON) and Guillaume Blais-Dufour (Québec, QC) both finished second in the overall standings of the Canadian Junior Championships that concluded today at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Canada’s team for the 2009 World Junior Championships, to be held February 20th to 22nd in Zakopane, Poland, will be confirmed later this week by Speed Skating Canada, but unless a major surprises happens, both athletes should be selected, getting the opportunity to represent Canada at the short and long track World Junior Championships the same year.

To conclude the event, Jordan Belchos (Toronto, ON) won the 10 000m race with a time of 13:42.62. Following Belchos in second place was fellow Ontarian Andrew Godbout (14:11.28).  Stefan Waples finished third with a respectable time of 14:23.53.

Plus…leave it to Benoit to handpick an equally skilled (far more attractive), and talented partner to share these event wins with.  Never to be outshone by the boys, Dominique Lalonde also stepped onto the podium in a 2nd place win.  Way to go my “Assassin des coins”.

Skate the Lake 6 was marked in several way, none in the least by a visit by Canadian television icon and comedian Rick Mercer of the Rick Mercer Report. The show filmed in Portland will air later this month.

“Last year we had record crowds, probably 3,000 people over the day, and this year was definitely busier. Everything went so well, the weather, the volunteer effort, the racers, it all came together,” said Portland Outdoors president Marco Smits.
