The one that matters to me, at least. No disrespect intended to the short track derby, but I like mostly non-contact sport contests of speed. The first turn of an F1 race is admittedly often an exception.</p><p>This weekend pro long track starts again, and TeamUSA has some experienced skaters leading up to the Olympics. Notably, Shani Davis, a great speedskater over the years, returns. Also Heather (Richardson) Bergsma, from High Point, NC, is back on the ice for another year always being a threat to win the gold. I don't know how or if I'll be able to catch this off the airwaves or streams, but might make an attempt. Former inliner Joey Mantia will also be on the team!&nbsp;</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Thialf</span> <div class="street-address"> Pim Mulierlaan 1 </div> <span class="locality">Heerenveen</span>, <span class="region">Friesland</span> <span class="postal-code">8443 DA</span> <div class="country-name">Netherlands</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="52.938675">52° 56' 19.23" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="5.943217">5° 56' 35.5812" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.nl?q=Pim+Mulierlaan+1%2C+Heerenveen%2C+8443+DA%2C+nl" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/speedskating-season-starting-and-during-olympic-year-it-matters" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/speedskating-season-starting-and-during-olympic-year-it-matters#comments 2017 2018 2000s 2010s Earth Heather Richardson Bergsma Heerenveen NED ice speed skating indoor Joey Mantia Netherlands (NLD) olympics Shani Davis speed speed skaters ice long track winter olympics Europe http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1484 52.938675 5.943217 Sat, 11 Nov 2017 03:23:38 +0000 roadskater 1484 at http://roadskater.net 2010 Giro d'Italia starts Saturday http://roadskater.net/2010-giro-ditalia-starts-saturday <p>The 2010 Giro d'Italia begins this Saturday with an 8.4 km time trial in Amsterdam.

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. I've only watched a bit but it looks and sounds and feels great! </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Locations</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Moscow</span> <div class="country-name">Russia</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="55.755786">55° 45' 20.8296" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="37.617633">37° 37' 3.4788" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Berlin</span> <div class="country-name">Germany</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="52.523480">52° 31' 24.528" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="13.411494">13° 24' 41.3784" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=%2C+%2C+Berlin%2C+de" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Heerenveen</span> <div class="country-name">Netherlands</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="52.956529">52° 57' 23.5044" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="5.926219">5° 55' 34.3884" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.nl?q=%2C+Heerenveen%2C+%2C+nl" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Nagano</span> <div class="country-name">Japan</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="36.648550">36° 38' 54.78" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="138.194243">138° 11' 39.2748" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Changchun</span> <div class="country-name">China</div> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Kolomna</span> <div class="country-name">Russia</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="55.094559">55° 5' 40.4124" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="38.775768">38° 46' 32.7648" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Hamar</span> <div class="country-name">Norway</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="60.799158">60° 47' 56.9688" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="11.056095">11° 3' 21.942" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Dresden</span> <div class="country-name">Germany</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="51.050958">51° 3' 3.4488" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="13.733658">13° 44' 1.1688" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=%2C+%2C+Dresden%2C+de" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Vienna</span> <div class="country-name">Austria</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="48.209206">48° 12' 33.1416" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="16.372778">16° 22' 22.0008" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/watch-hours-free-internet-tv-speed-skating-long-track-and-short-demand-and-live-highlights-and-recaps" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/watch-hours-free-internet-tv-speed-skating-long-track-and-short-demand-and-live-highlights-and-recaps#comments Skate Events 2008 2009 ice Austria (AUT) Berlin Canada (CAN) Dresden free free tv Germany (DEU) (Deutschland) Hamar Heerenveen NED international skating union (isu) Kolomna RUS long track long track ice Moscow Netherlands (NLD) Norway (NOR) Russian Federation (RUS) Salt Lake City UT short track ice skating Vancouver BC Vienna world cup world level short track http://roadskater.net/crss/node/954 55.755786 37.617633 52.523480 13.411494 52.956529 5.926219 36.648550 138.194243 55.094559 38.775768 60.799158 11.056095 51.050958 13.733658 48.209206 16.372778 Wed, 04 Mar 2009 17:50:25 +0000 roadskater 954 at http://roadskater.net Davis wins 1500-meter Ice Speedskating World Cup Race, Heerenveen, Netherlands http://roadskater.net/davis-wins-1500-meter-ice-speedskating-world-cup-race-heerenveen-netherlands <p> Shani Davis continues his winning ways and certainly is close to taking a season win as well. No time to go into this now, but he's really doing great. Also Kristina Groves of Ottawa seems to be doing well lately. Not sure on the timeliness of these as they reference different locations.

The news may be aimed at the X vs. Y junk (now that elections are mostly over) between Davis and Hedrick, who joined with Trevor Marsicano to place 2nd in the team pursuit, but the most important part may be the photo (apparently from the 2006 Olys, eh?). </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Heerenveen</span> <div class="country-name">Netherlands</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="52.956529">52° 57' 23.5044" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="5.926219">5° 55' 34.3884" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.nl?q=%2C+Heerenveen%2C+%2C+nl" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/shani-davis-shows-how-skate-full-extension-heel-push" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/shani-davis-shows-how-skate-full-extension-heel-push#comments Roadskater.net 2008 ice 1000 meters 1500 meters Heerenveen NED long track Netherlands (NLD) olympics speedskating winter world cup team pursuit http://roadskater.net/crss/node/880 52.956529 5.926219 Thu, 20 Nov 2008 16:59:51 +0000 roadskater 880 at http://roadskater.net
