Tell us whatever you can while you can still remember it. Share stuff about...who, what, when, where, how, how many, how much, how fast, how fun, what you'd want to be different from the race organizers, what you'd want to do differently, what you'd want your team to do in the future, and do you think you'd do it again? This is open to all participants from any team and soloskaters too. Please share your thoughts while you can remember them.

In fact, we need to create a whole new verb that adequately describes how much you rock. And another BIG THANKS to Brian Shicoff for organizing everything, and to Lawrence for really making me earn that silver medal, and to Bryan McKenney for rounding out our team of Americans determined to fulfill Brian&#39;s dream of sweeping the podium...

I kid, I kid... :)</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Seriously though... &quot;Le Defi&quot; is coming up and I&#39;m seriously thinking about going up there for it, as I&#39;ve mentioned before. It&#39;s a 128km (~79 mile) tour around the island. (You did know Montreal was an island, right?) It is timed, so some choose to see how fast they can do it. But it is a very scenic route, and would be very cool to just skate at a leisurely pace too. If you finish in under 12 hours, you get a bronze medal. Under 10 hours - silver. Under 8 hours - gold. (Course record is just over 5 hours...) </p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/time-kick-some-french-canadian-butt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/time-kick-some-french-canadian-butt#comments 2006 Montréal QC outdoor inline speed http://roadskater.net/crss/node/257 Mon, 18 Sep 2006 21:49:42 +0000 skatey-mark 257 at http://roadskater.net Saskatoon athlete breaks world record http://roadskater.net/saskatoon-athlete-breaks-world-record <p>I don&#39;t know much about world record solo attempts, but I saw this story in the sidebar and thought it might spark some discussion at some point among those who have been to the F1 track in Montreal, especially to skate. As I recall from reports, during the 24 hour skate race there, participants had to watch for hedgehogs crossing or some such! Regardless, I don&#39;t know if this is an age group or gender or human speed record, as the article leaves a bit to the imagination. Perhaps we&#39;ll find more later.
