Hey distance people. I have an idea I would like to get all of your input on for an event possibly in 2011. A multi-day Stage Race (a la Tour De France) where racers start together each day and cover the same distance not in a circuit but point to point.

This year was no exception. 3 days of racing over 188 miles and the top 2 were 20 seconds apart with Andrew Andras taking out this years title. Every yeah the level of riding gets closer and closer and the riders are more and more prepared.
Massive shout outs to everyone who entered and completed the 2015 Chief Ladiga Silver Comet Skate Callenge. Special mention goes to the winners Andrew Andras and Sarah Rassieur. And of course to Marion who once again has set the bar high for other distance skate events.

Eric Palmer took on the lead and skated into second … Continue reading Event – Miami Ultraskate Recap

Last weekend saw the second edition of the Paris Push Race…the amazingly warm weather that has been predominant in Europe has helped postpone the end of the season.
