The road surfaces look great! Video is over 1 hour long.&nbsp;</p><p>The packs start to thin out after about ten minutes. Closed roads. Church bells. Bystanders cheering. Tramlines. "Paß auf!". Street musicians and the Doppler effect.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHaGtm8jFas" title="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHaGtm8jFas">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHaGtm8jFas</a></p> http://roadskater.net/2014-berlin-inline-skate-marathon-video#comments Berlin Berlin (land) closed road Earth Germany (DEU) (Deutschland) inline skating marathons open road outdoor outdoor inline speed racing roadskating skating Europe http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1466 Sat, 18 Apr 2015 15:08:07 +0000 eebee 1466 at http://roadskater.net 2012 BMW Berlin Marathon Inline Skate Finish Video http://roadskater.net/2012-bmw-berlin-marathon-inline-skate-finish-video <p>Per <a href="http://bontskates.yuku.com/topic/2259/2012-BMW-Berlin-Marathon#.UGoPpU3A9qM" target="_blank">Bill Begg on the Bont forum</a>, this year's Berlin Marathon had a total of over FORTY-EIGHT THOUSAND (!!!) participants! This spread out over skaters, hand cyclists/wheel chair athletes and runners. About 6,800 were skaters. Not too shabby! And they had beautiful weather this year as opposed to the driving rain they had in recent years. The skate portion of this event happened last Saturday, Sept. 29th.</p><p>Here's a pretty good video of the final few KMs, of eventual winner Ewen Fernandez of France, and Bart Swings of Belgium, showing the beauty of this sport.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=4051845253239">https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=4051845253239</a></p><p>I'd like to see ALL the footage taken from these cameras during this race. The way these two skate is so pretty, frankly I can't handle it. &nbsp;</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor)</span> <div class="street-address"> Pariser Platz </div> <span class="locality">Berlin</span>, <span class="region">Berlin</span> <div class="country-name">Germany</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="52.516211">52° 30' 58.3596" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="13.377673">13° 22' 39.6228" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=Pariser+Platz%2C+%2C+Berlin%2C+de" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/2012-bmw-berlin-marathon-inline-skate-finish-video" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/2012-bmw-berlin-marathon-inline-skate-finish-video#comments Roadskater.net 2012 2000s 2010s Bart Swings Berlin Berlin (land) Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) closed course Earth Germany (DEU) (Deutschland) inline skating marathons outdoor outdoor inline speed speedskating World Inline Cup (WIC) Europe http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1454 52.516211 13.377673 Mon, 01 Oct 2012 22:42:33 +0000 eebee 1454 at http://roadskater.net The Film, D Tour, on Independent Lens, plus ISU Berlin World Cup Replay Package on Universal Sports Online http://roadskater.net/film-d-tour-independent-lens-plus-isu-berlin-world-cup-replay-package-universal-sports-online I have been out of touch for a few weeks after some long distance skating and the prep and skating and wrap (still ongoing) of our Roadskater.net team charity efforts. Last night was the awards dinner for the Tour to Tanglewood, and it was a transitional day for several reasons, all good.

I just never quite got to it until now. But now is good too. If you wish you could see long track and short track ISU world cup events on your television, well you might sometimes, but on your computer, you can see many hours of video from this year's world cup season in both track formats.

With Berlin&#39;s Brandenburg Gate in the background, I&#39;m assuming they&#39;re on Unter den Linden. Last time I was on that street there was a big, ugly wall cutting it in half - profanely colorful on one side (West) and stiflingly bland on the other (East). Good to see a previously fractured site now the setting for joyous play...or is it fierce battle? :-)</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/rainy-berlin-wic-photo" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/rainy-berlin-wic-photo#comments Roadskater.net 2007 Berlin Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) photographs Unter den Linden websites World Inline Cup (WIC) Rollerblade http://roadskater.net/crss/node/597 Wed, 03 Oct 2007 14:09:30 +0000 eebee 597 at http://roadskater.net
