Last weekend saw the 1st Longboard only marathon take place in Amsterdam, Holland: The Rabbit Race. Overall, 21 riders of varying ages got together to compete. As expected, Holland was heavily represented, but there were strong contenders from France and England as well. What the race was lacking in numbers was certainly made up in enthusiasm and good vibes, both from the participants and organisers.
The 2.2km course in itself was in the beautiful tranquil location of Sport Park Slotten and the weather conditions could not have been more perfect. It was for the most part flat, with a steep uphill over a bridge providing a challenging climb followed by a downhill section a little after the starting line.
