Hessen + Frankfurt http://roadskater.net/taxonomy/term/1242%201243/0 en Frankfurt Man Sets Backward-Skating World Record http://roadskater.net/frankfurt-man-sets-backward-skating-world-record <p> Blake and I saw a little bit of <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxfA_7dMbFM">this video clip</a> 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. </p> <p> 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. </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Frankfurt</span> <div class="country-name">Germany</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="50.111512">50° 6' 41.4432" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="8.680506">8° 40' 49.8216" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=%2C+%2C+Frankfurt%2C+de" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> http://roadskater.net/frankfurt-man-sets-backward-skating-world-record#comments Roadskater.net 2008 guinness backward Frankfurt skating video world record http://roadskater.net/crss/node/813 50.111512 8.680506 Sat, 23 Aug 2008 16:12:20 +0000 timv 813 at http://roadskater.net
