“It’ll Make Sense Later…”: Highwood Pass 2009

Highwood Pass 2009 is “It’ll Make Sense Later…” latest entry-

Our newly formed ritual of going to Highwood Pass in Kananaskis Country was a success.  We’ve headed out there a few times now, 4 days last year (weather was god awful and miserable) and now for 7 amazing days this year.  Although, the first weekend we didn’t have that great of luck on weather it still proved to be a fun few days.

Vote- Which Two Sports Should Earn Olympic Status?

I am curious to see which sport you’d vote for? Alle Olimpiadi del 2016 potrebbero essere ammesse 2 nuove discipline. Quali scegliereste tra queste 7 candidate?.

You can add your thoughts & follow the discussion here; YOU VOTE FOR THE SKATING IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES.


I hope you are right & the top guys have done their homeework with the right appointments & right telephone calls ? it seems a bit worrying when the Olympic president travelled all the way to N.Z. & it was only reported he spoke with Golf & Rugby & N.Z. has one of the proudest speedskating records, the work needed done a long time ago, I just hope the IOC is not just impressed with $ signs, a few years back, these sports of Rugby & Golf would never ever been considered.

Roller Sports Pitched To IOC Executive Committee In Lausanne

The following is from PatinCarrera.com’s  article Sueño Olímpico 2016: El patinaje vivió un día histórico en Lausanne & translated with Babel Fish

It happens what happens in the final decision, the world-wide speed skating today gave a great jump in its long sport history since for the first time, the top leaders of our sport were reunited expensive to face with the leaders of the world-wide sport, the members of the Executive Committee of the Olympic Committee the International, the organization of greater prestige and power in the sport scope of the planet.

The video to ¨Roller for Olympics¨ was a special protagonist in the interview and hit in the eyes of the members of the Executive Committee that were bewildered with the speed and the skill of the skaters.


Reports- 24 Hours Roller Montreal- From InlineOttawa Forum

In the thread 2009 24 Hour Inline Report, you’ll find a few skaters’ reports & points of view from this year’s 24 Hours Roller Montreal-

The 24hr organizers made some changes this year. They moved the village into the parking lot, the DJ booth to a corner on top of the paddocks overlooking the villiage, and the timing booth and start/finish line to the other far end of the paddocks. The area behind the paddocks was completely fenced off and reserved for tents and picnic tables. The exchange area was lengthened, widened, and each team assigned a specific waiting zone for their transfers. The infamous zone of red paint, which in the past transformed into one long zone of frictionless teflon when wet, was gone, replaced with blue paint that had faded over the course of the winter to the point where it wasn’t a safety hazzard this year.

About my secret weapon: I had brought my L.E.D. light set which I use for 24 hour mountain bike races and training at night. It is blindingly, searingly bright. It should come with a warning and a legal waiver, it is that bright. Crazy bright. Did I mention it’s bright?

Candy Wong- 24 Hours: Pink Vs. Pink

Candy Wong‘s latest from the 24 Hours Roller Montreal is Pink vs Pink

Sarah woke me up Sunday morning at 6am. The sun was bright and the air was cold & crisp. The night shift team was on their 6th rotation and the girls were getting tired. We needed fresh legs on the course. Now. Between 3am to 6:30am, the girls skated some very strong laps and we regained our lead on the Poulettes to 1 lap +5:20.
