This Weekend- 24 Hours Montreal- Candy Wong Giving Live Updates

This weekend, I will be competing in the 24 Hours Inline Montreal. The competition begins Saturday at 1pm and concludes on Sunday at 1pm.

Candy Wong will be sharing live updates on her via Twitter. You can also view her webpage.

The team- Toronto Inline Skating Club/SpeedSkateWorld.com – that I am skating on includes Leo Frusteri, Camilo Echeverri, Jesee Pauley, Jade Pauley, Travis Shaw, Eric ‘Hip Hop’ Gee, Morgan Williams, and perhaps two more skaters who we’ve been in contact with and grooming. We’ll also have Mister Scott Pauley helping us with strategy, motivation, and more.

Our team’s goal is to have fun, enjoy the skating, and skate well. We’ve got a team of good skaters with a wide array of strengths. I’m looking forward to spending 24 hours competing with friends and skaters from Toronto.

Just in case you’d like to come by and visit the team and I, we’ll be set up in paddock #28C (see the paddock set-up).


Here are a few of the things that I am taking with me to Montreal-

  • Morgane Echardour
  • Food (each team member is responsible for bringing pre-assigned food for the entire team)
  • Big white board with dry-erase markers
  • Microwave
  • Lots of tea
  • Chairs
  • Tent
  • Pillows
  • Air mattress
  • Blankets
  • Timimg clock
  • Walkie-talkies

I highly doubt that I’ll be updating or maintaining SSW during the 24 hours. I’ll probably start sharing news & maintaining SSW on Monday or even possibly Tuesday or Wednesday.

I’m sure that in between now and then, you can figure out where to find news from the 24 Hours Inline Montreal as well as from the wide world of speed skating.

Rand Plett Update- #6- June 4

What a difference a couple days make !!!!! I walked in to visit Randy today and he was standing up and moving around and walking and had a big grin on his face !!!! The physio guy was in and they were discussing ways for Randy to get in and out of bed by himself. I believe Randy is testing and playing the physio guy a bit, to gauge exactly what he has to accomplish to get out of the hospital and home……. He will probably practise during the nights instead of sleeping…. The way things are looking to my uneducated eye is Randy is looking at being home before the weekend is over !!!!
