SSW Fund-Raising Drive Day 3- You Are My Sponsors

First, thank you to everyone who has contributed to the SSW Fund-Raising Drive.

In a sense, this makes you my sponsors. Instead of going out and writing sponsorship proposals and seeking help from companies, I share what I can through SpeedSkateWorld.com.

I think the idea is to leverage the hundreds & thousands of daily SSW visitors and create a support network.

With your support, I can continue working on and using SSW as a platform for sharing the wonderful sport of speed skating.

I guess in some sort of round-about way, SSW is my sponsorship proposal; it’s a representation of work, joy, fun, and committment to speed skating.

That means you can rest assured that all the funds that are raised, IMO, go to a great and worthy cause 😉

Report- Gournay En Bray French Inline Cup- From Bill Begg

Bill Begg shared a report on the in the thread BONT WHEELS TEAM Racing 2009 (see One that got away & one Bonus)-

At times Sara has shown good form at Europeans & very little at Worlds, so from those outside of Europe, does not have a high reputation & would not be closely watched. So a good win to Sara over Tamara, with Kelly & Alex 3rd & 4th. with the absence of Nathalie Barbotin Tamara Llorens now leads the FIC with two 2nds & 1 3rd placing from previous leader Nicole Begg.

But a great result for the Ageless Argentina skater & former sub World Champion ,Guillermo Trinaroli Bont Enduro 3rd in the mens race, there was a 4 men Breakaway, with Yann Gyader winning from teamate Ewen Fernandez.

Report- RSO Series #1- Mother’s Day Classic- From Candy Wong

Candy Wong shared a report on this past Sunday’s RSO Series #1, Mother’s Day Classic.

Notice all the winter layers I piled on? Well well, if you take a closer look at my hands, you would notice that I was racing with mittens. Not just any old aerodynamic mittens (is there even such a thing?!)…
