Reports- Chicagoland Inline Marathon NROC/ Pro Inline Tour- From Hoffmonster, Inline Planet, Candy Wong

Thanks to the Inline Planet and the Inline Planet Skater Network, you can find a few reports from Sunday’s Chicagoland Inline Marathon NROC-

What I enjoy most about multiple race events is that there are lots of opportunities to socialize with fellow skaters. Between the Saturday morning races and the marathon on Sunday, there were lots of free time. On one hand, I knew that I had to take it easy and stay prepared for the marquee race the next day. On the other hand, it was tempting to have some fun in Chicago.

2 pm: Recap: Big day for Powerslide. Jorge Botero wins the open pro men’s division; Briana Kramer wins the open pro women’s division. That puts them both in first place in their respective NROC divisions.

Details of the master and veterans races have been sketchy so far.

One thing seems clear: The Chicagoland Inline Marathon and the Keep Fit America Skate Tour were a big hit with skaters. Apparently, about 500 skaters participated … at least at last count.

12:55 pm: Post-race interview with Briana Kramer: Powerslide’s Briana Kramer said she used the mid-race sprints to help gauge the competition and devise a winning strategy.

This is a fantastic event, that I will be at again next year. There were a few bumps, but nothing that I would really get worked up over.
Put this one on your calendar.. it’s getting bigger, and bigger.
I made a point to thank every volunteer I came into contact with. without them, the event would not been nearly as good as it was.
Thank you Team Rainbo, and Peter S. for putting on a great event!!

Duo Burn Up Roller Skating Track

Doucet and Echardour won’t be passing up any medals by staying home. While Canadian skaters are as dedicated and passionate about the sport as athletes from other countries, the coaching just isn’t available here. While he’s tops here, Doucet says he’s “middle of the pack” in international competition.
