Report- Day 1- USA Outdoor Championships- Keith Carroll

Keith Carroll shared a report from day 1 at the USA Roller Sports Outdoor Championships- read it here; Outdoor Nationals Day 1

Some quick standouts from the day would be Erin Jackson, Sara Hebbrecht, and Jonathon Blair for all breaking 300m records and also Mario Valencia for having an exceptional day in junior men all together.In senior men Joey was not here for the first day because of a World Inline Cup race in Europe that he attended (and won) but he will be here tomorrow. Personally I thought of it as a opportunity to seize some good points before he got there which I think I did.

Report- Mans 24 Hours- From Bill Begg

Bill Begg shared quite a report on this past weekend’s Mans 24 Hours- read it here; LeMans 24 roller results (unofficial) top 20 mens teams (see post #4)-

Bont team give there congratulations to Poli RPM & lead by two of skatings great Gentlemen & stalwats Mattheui Boher & Pascal Briand, who not only responded to our early pressure, but then attacked us & ecked out a 1 lap lead.

Ben Alchin recorded the fastest ever official lap on Le Mans at 6 min 14 sec, skating solo with the hill at over 40 KMPH, there was previous talk in other years of Tristan Loy, of a 6 min 10 by self team timming, but they admitted he took a short cut through a prohibited area, which we Questioned, and were told, they would have an official placed there, but the official soon dissappeared & opponents were taking the short cut, but Ben Alchins Lap was a full official track effort, more information will follow on the wheel configeration, that this fastest ever official lap was created on.

NO I AM NOT ANGRY ABOUT THIS YEARS RESULT, WE WERE BEATEN BUY A GOOD TEAM & LET DOWN ULTIMATELY BY OUR OWN PEOPLE, ITS 3 YEARS AGO WHEN WE WON & WERE BLATANTLY ROBBED, THAT I AM STILL VERY ANGRY ABOUT & THE COWARDICE SHOWN BY A BIG BRAVE MAN 3 YEARS AGO READING THE RIOT ACT, WHO BEHAVED LIKE A FIELD MOUSE 3 YEARS LATER.

New Zealand News- Kalon Dobbin, Nicole Begg, Peter Micheal, DJ Nation, & Ben Alchin

In the thread  New Zealand News (see post #591), Bill Begg shared the latest on Kalon Dobbin, Nicole Begg, Peter Micheal, DJ Nation, & Ben Alchin; 

Kalon Dobbin has not retired, he was unfortunately suffering from an injury, that had not cleared up as quickly as it should have, but Like Nicole Begg, who is still not permitted to race, due to blood thinning to prevent Thombouses, there first appearances care likely to be the World Games, 17th, 18th & 19th July in Kaohsiung Taiwan.

Peter Micheal is back in New Zealand training, due to lack of team options, the former 3 times World Junior Champion won all the N.Z. Senior national titles, he chose to go for & its hoped the lack of top of the three training partners & the cold Palmerston North Winter, does not effect his form for Worlds.

It is a worry for N.Z. this year, as to collect Government Funding, we have to secure so many senior medals, with Shane Dobbin out of the team, due to Ice contract committements, DJ Nation struggled to regain good Technical form after comming back from the Ice & the Injuries to there two Stars Nicole & Kalon, who usually ensure the medals are delivered, it is a concern.

Ben Alchin not wanted by the selectors & with the fastest ever Le Mans Official lap time, its time they became a bit more flexible, as the cupboard is becomming very bare & Alchin a former Junior World Medalist, is one of N.Z. Strong Men.

Le Patineur Du Futur- Partie 6 De 8: Le Dos, La Suite

Les Pays-Bas, c’est un peu la matrice du patinage de vitesse. Certes, on trouve aussi des traces anciennes de rollers « en ligne » en URSS ou aux Etats-Unis. Mais les premiers à avoir hissé ce patin à glace d’été au rang de sport à part entière, ce sont bien les Bataves. J’étais donc arrivé à Rotterdam fin février. J’avais rendez-vous avec la professeure Conteste dans le salon d’un hôtel qu’elle avait elle-même choisi, le Royal Republic, place de la Rose Fanée, pour un entretien de deux heures maximum. Heureusement que j’avais pris le temps de préparer une liste de questions essentielles !
