Vote for Your Favorite Ice Speedskating Video in Contest from Canada

If you have a few minutes to watch some videos about ice speedskating stories indoors and out, check out this contest where you can vote on which ones go to the next round. I assume United Statesians can vote! Check out the video from Canada's skaters... http://www.ingspeedskatingchallenge.com/video.php Methinks thou must yield thine (or someone's!) email address to vote...or at least something that looks like an email address. But watching the videos is fine for me.

Bont's Semi Race skates

So after a nasty spill in mid Marchl I suddenly find myself in need of new raceboots.  Once again the mounting area has been damaged beyond repair.  This being the third pair of skates in a row where either a frame or boot issue has been damaged in the back mount.

So as I perused the Skates i see a new style of boot, a 3 point mounting system.  Well thinking in mathmatical terms the amount of tourqe would be reduced to the mount by 17% by moving to a 3 point system.  "What the hell" I say to myself.

Need help with inline-skating forward to backwards transitions!

For the life of me I've never been able to safely execute a forward-backwards transition. Part of it is I'm just scared! I tried learning it by first scissoring then pivoting on the toe-wheels to land with the skates going the same direction of travel. Mine always ended up going every which way instead.
