500m Road Race

World Inline Speedskating Championships, Cali, Colombia.

This morning I raced the quarter finals for 500m track. I was up against athletes from the USA, France, Brazil and Mexico. The first two of each heat qualify for the semifinals. I had a good start, nearly hanging on to the pack for about 2/3 of a lap (the whole race is 1.25 laps). Eventually I lost them completely, and continued to concentrate on getting the best time I could.

Being last in my heat, I did not qualify for the semifinal, but I think I had a good run, and I have a feeling that I won't be last when the final results are announced (disqualified athletes are ranked by the qualifying runs time).

Tonight I race the 20K Points Elimination Road Race, and I'm hoping to do better than the 10K last night.
