10K Points Road Race

World Inline Speedskating Championships, Cali, Colombia. 

Yesterday was the 10K Points Road race. I had a better start than the last races, only nearly avoiding a massive crash on the starting line, that left an Ecuadorian skater lying bruised on the ground. I managed to stay with the pack for about a round and a half, then once I was alone, focused all my energy on not being lapped by the lead pack.

While I was alone, The Equadorian skater who fell earlier actually managed to get back up to speed and pass me. He was quiet impressive and probably would have done well if not for his fall. I managed to hold out for nearly 5 laps, until being eliminated for being overtaken by the lead pack. At 54th place, I'm 4th from last which is the best I've done so far.

I found out this morning that there was a TV interview of me broadcast last night, Since my Spanish isn't great, I couldn't quiet figure out what channel or what was the content of the broadcast. Either way, I'm getting quiet a lot of media coverage here.
