Athens to Atlanta Roadskate 2009 A2A Detour Video

Hi. Here's a noisy but perhaps useful video of the detour around the problems on Cruse Road. You definitely don't want to go there! The first turn is a right onto Old Norcross Rd in or just after a Construction Zone on Herrington. At the end of the video, you'll be set to turn right onto Pleasant Hill Rd., opposite where you would have come in from Cruse Rd.

You can try the Roadskaterdotnet youtube channel to see if the files have uploaded (there will be 3)...

Dutch Win but USA Men Do Well in the ISU World Junior Speedskating Championships in Zakopane Poland. Outdoors! Beautiful! Photos

The ISU World Junior Speedskating Championships took place in Zakopane, Poland last weekend. Wow. This event like it would be amazing fun for participants. I'm not sure about spectators if they didn't like the cold. But look how beautiful it was there! Well a bit snowy some of the time for skating maybe? Who cares!

The event has a nice website with some good photos. If you have a minute to watch the video...do it.

Frankfurt Man Sets Backward-Skating World Record

Blake and I saw a little bit of this video clip as we were eating yummy pizza after skating on Tuesday evening. A man from Frankfurt gets into the Guinness Book of World Records by skating 208.4 km backwards in 24 hours.

It's pretty rare to see inline speed skating on a nationwide cable network (MSNBC) any time, and it's too bad that it takes a gimmick like this to get on. But he looks like a pretty decent skater and at least he was legitimately skating.

Watch Tour de Georgia Cycling Video and GPS Tracking Free Online

Wow. Really great stuff and sorry to be late on this with the Eddy workshop and guests coming to town, but over time, free internet video and the Tour de Georgia are both getting cooler. As I had to keep telling myself last weekend, I can't leave town right now with lots to do and some of it requiring me to be here, so I will have to enjoy this opportunity from afar it seems. If anyone thinks they want to get a carpool together later in the week, let me know (I know I'm dreamin').

Almost Naked Skaters Rocking and Rollerblading (Inline Skating) with Motorscooter in Minneapolis

OK. I just said "almost naked" to get your attention. These guys are less naked than many men on euproean beaches, from what I hear. It's really a combination joke on the movie title, Almost Famous, and referring back to discussion on someone promoting skating with nudity. I have a double standard about skin and skating. If it's the typical sell it with a naked person (typically, it seems, a woman) trying to be so hot, I don't like it. Selling skating with nude photos seems cheesy to me, and doesn't really reflect well on the sport or the manufacturers.
