Racing Today!

World Inline Speedskating Championships, Cali, Colombia.

Today I finally got my first chance to have some track and road time at the stadium. The skaters here are blisteringly fast, and most of the ones I skated with during the warm ups were juniors...


Still, I don't think I'll find myself finishing last at the races.


After giving the banked track a go, I started feeling pretty comfortable with it, and decided to enter into the track races as well. This means that my first race at the worlds will be tonight! The 15k points elimination at 17:00. I'm going to try my best to stay ahead, and avoid elimination for as longs as I can. Being one of the 17 skaters to finish the whole 75 laps would be amazing, though I'm not counting on it.


I'll also be racing the 500 meters tomorrow morning, so be sure to tune in.
