Pictures & Report- Winnipeg’s North Of The 49th Marathon- From Herb Gayle

Herb Gayle sent me a report with pictures & results from this past weekend’s North Of The 49th Marathon held in Winnipeg-

I went to Winnipeg on August 29-30 to support Randy Plett’s wonderful inline event titled: North of 49th. Mike Anderson (Bont) took top honours, Stephane Tremblay 2nd (Ilpeloton), Benoit Letourneau 3rd (Ilpeloton), Conrade Thomas 4th (my Aloe Up team-mate); I got dropped from the leaders with one lap to go and was caught by a large chase pack.

Skating in a large pack is much easier than skating alone in a marathon, however since it was the last lap, skaters were moving within the pack for better positioning. I tried to avoid getting trapped near the back when it was time for the battle. You could feel the adrenalin building as skaters anticipated the inevitable field sprint. Dave Lawler was up front, but he was reluctant to initiate the sprint since we still some distance to the finish line. Moments later, Tim Turner lead out the sprint and I was third of fourth in the peloton, then I heard someone moving up on the left, so I moved around the skater in front of me on the right side. The sprint battle was in full force with legs, skates and arms flying which seemed like a long journey slightly uphill to the finish. My Aloe Up Team-mate Conrade Thomas saw the action and he said I had a crazy look on my face as I was coming in ahead of the pack to claim 5th place overall.

The top overall women were Martha Flynn-Kauth 1st, Sue Welch 2nd, Becky Maus 3rd, [Lorraine Plett 4th and  Ann Vanbellinger 5th].

An added bonus this year was having a Porsche sport car as the official pace vehicle, thanks to Greg Carrigan and his friends at a local car dealership which were one of the race sponsors. A few lucky skaters got a chance to test drive the Porsche (in the parking lot) after the race.

I highly recommend you come out to the North of 49th and bring two friends…it is a terrific inline race on a very smooth course; kindly tell all your friends to come out to Winnipeg next year on August 29, 2010.

Pictures & Reprot- Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride & Inline Skate

Six of us started out on the steamy morning with hundreds of cyclists and made our way out from the shop on a nice route out of town, especially if you have Police support for the left turn onto Silas Creek Parkway. Coming back is fine without support, as it’s basically gently downhill and the only major inroad along the downhill is from the left, at the ramp from I-40. It’s a T with nothing coming from the right and there’s a shoulder there that provides comfort if needed Once you get to Buchanan Street, it’s an easy level stoplight with no stress.

Results, Report (Inlcuding Collins) & Pictures- St. Michael Inline Half Marathon

The St. Michael Inline Half Marathon was held this past weekend. Here are links with reports & pictures-

They formed a straight line and jockeyed for position
In a paceline that shifted and changed in constant transition
They flashed on by with the fastest wheels and the best frames
The spectators whistled and shouted and called them names

C’mon Caveman, c’mon Clyde, C’mon Rod, Kauth and Flynn
Go Cupcake, faster Phil, lookit them wheels spin!
To the front of the paceline, over the top of the hill
Watch for the tar snakes, potholes, manholes and roadkill!

Results, Reports, Pictures, Videos- Minnesota Half Marathon & NROC 10K Championship

The Minnesota Half Marathon & NROC 10K Championship were held this past weekend. You can use the links below to access results, reports,  pictures, videos, and pictures-

Dave Sarmiento was a tenth of a second behind first place Jose Botero’s 34:53.6. Both pros bolted through the course like a couple of overcaffeinated hyenas chasing down an impala for breakfeast. They stretched almost a minute between them and the rest of the pack before Rob Bell, Tyler McGinnis and Matt Meyer each caught up and stole a limb from the carcass. You could hear them laughing and growling all the way to the picnic tables.

Break out the Geritol. Morgan Williams (37:53.0) took first in the geriatric crowd. The next to reach the nursing home was Herb Gayle followed by Twiggs, Johnson and the Old Man himself, Cale Carvell. All of them were beating each other with canes to get across the finish first.

Last Saturday I raced in the inaugural Minnesota Half Marathon in St Paul. It was my second girls-only race of this season and it couldn’t be more different than the experience at Chicagoland Inline Marathon.

What an amazing effort from Rueben, to be honest I saw him take off and thought it was too early, but it turned out to be an inpsired move and we didn’t see him again till a couple of hours later at the finish line! A brave and strong attack and a truly deserved victory. Congrats Rueben!
