Aidez Mathieu Turcotte A Vaincre Le Cancer

Chers parents, amis et combattants,

Comme vous le savez peut-être, ma femme Véronique à combattu le cancer l’an dernier.

Grâce à sa force et toute son énergie elle est maintenant en rémission et en pleine forme.

Pour continuer la lutte contre le cancer, ce vendredi 5 juin je participerai pour la 2e année consécutive au Relais pour la Vie, une marche nocturne de 12 heures, au profit de la Société Canadienne du cancer.

Plusieurs personnes comme Véronique ont bénéficiés des généreux montants qui ont été donnés l’an passé.

Vos dons font la différence; notre équipe à ramassé plus de 20 000$ l’an dernier grâce à vous.
Vos dons font la différence; faites-le pour tous les gens autour de vous qui sont touchés de près ou de loin.
Vos dons font la différence; nous avons vu et vécu les effets de cette levée de fond.

Recherche, prévention et guérison du cancer, voici les objectifs de cet évènement grandiose pancanadien!

Pour m’encourager, faites un don, c’est facile et ça fait du bien

Votre contribution permettra à d’autres personnes comme Véronique de reprendre leur vie suite à un cancer.
Merci de votre générosité, et n’hésitez pas à passer le message

Brooke Lochland’s Race Diary- Van Der Weil 3 Tracks Tournament

Last night i had the first race of the Van der Weil 3 Tracks Tournament, raced in Staphorst on a 400m track. It started to spit at the start of our race so we didn’t put our rain wheels on but some did in case it started pouring and they were right, i knew our new MPC Road War wheels were pretty good in the rain as i tested them in the rain the other day (long story). Our rival team Bemog/powerslide started attacking early but there was no way of them breaking away. I decided to attack as i was feeling good and i was finding the corners easy to skate.

Pan American Championships Planned For Mexico In October, Now Postponed

PatinCarrera is reporting that the Pan American Championships, which were originally planned for Aguascalientes, Mexico in October, have been postponed due to the influenza. The event is now planned for March 2010.

The Pan American Championships serves as the Pan American Games qualifying event for roller speed skating, artistic, and hockey.

The following is a translation of the article using Babel Fish

The rumors sounded by the corridors for some weeks but nobody confirmed the news. Last night, the Pan-American Confederation of Roller Sports presided over by the Colombian Carlos Orlando Ferreira Pinzón confirmed the situation and the Pan-American Championship of Skating 2009 will be postponed until the coming season.

Yann Guyader’s Used Wheels From Pamplona (Spain) World Inline Cup

Check out ASTA‘s entry Histoire de roues usées…… to view pictures of and read about Yann Guyader’s wheels that he used during this past weekend’s World Inline Cup race in Pamplona, Spain.

Voici quelques photos qui vont permettre à certain de comprendre que les élites qui font de la vitesse usent leurs roues sur les côtés et non sur le dessus.


Lommers- WADA & Health Consequences

The thread EDWIN LOMMERS FRAUDSTER is sill alive-

The obvious conclusion, the one that Lamerz fails to understand while keeping up his silly PR campaign, is that the kid career is over for good. Not only that: the side effects of nandrolone go from nasty to fatal. Boy’s liver, kidney, pancreas, joints, heart and testicles might already be compromised forever if treatment went on for more than a month, which seems obvious from his pictures. I hope somebody informed the kid about this, before is too late!

Not very nice at all & the lommers should be severly delt with by administering the crap to there child, lets hope its only one of the children, although many have doubts.

If Edwin has one once of decency, he should apologize to everyone on this board, as he has gloated about the use of drugs & how they will get off & he will overturn WADA & every other bit of nonsencical crap, but I doubt he has the balls to do that & young Wesley might be a bit deficient there also, if the usual alleged shrinkage problems occurr.

Johnny & Marcello might take turns at delivering the Johnstons product while he is inside, I was allways prepared to cut Edwin a bit of slack, but this shamfull act of 35 times the legal ammount, can only mean one thing, a long trip to the Government hotel, if somehow he worms his way out of it, it will certainly make a complete mockery of WADA, but I doubt it will get to that.
