Re: The Great EsSkate Feb 4-6 2011 Miami Beach FL

Welcome back from retirement. Thankyou, though my legs hurt like you cannot imagine... I think I used to actually slalom about 2 hours a month over the last 2 years. Never mind the legs; hows the juggling coming along - I just saw the 'Juggle with more balls than I can carry and do fancy skating vi...

Cool. See ya at the Esskate! Quads? Don't tell me you're doing Roller Derby now Bish . . . Of course not - I dont have the tattoos or the requisite bad-ass name... I do see a few of them at the rink at Glendale - they're all very pleasant - and look like raccoons ( a symptom of eyeliner abuse) lear...

Re: The Great EsSkate Feb 4-6 2011 Miami Beach FL

Just booked it all up.... You ought join us for the Retreat, Bish. You know you want to. Perhaps not this year - also I'm dabbling in the dark side of skating - If 'Riedall 265/DynaPro/Kwik9/Radar Tuner' mean anything you'll realise I got some quads for Xmas ( early ). These are my 'happening pair i...

In retrospect my move to recording partial laps was a mistake - I lost the plot at 7.392 :lol:

Re: Goodwood Roller Marathon 8th August 2010

Some results are there now... http://www.goodwoodmarathon.co.uk/10-results.shtml Blimey Paul, I never realised you were on the same lap, you were going so slowly at the finish that I thought I was coming round to lap you and stopped sprinting as I had seen off the threat from my line. Well done you...

Re: Goodwood Roller Marathon 8th August 2010

What a great event. Many thanks to the organisers. As a first marathon its also a 'personal best'. A bonus is that and I did it in less time than I spent in Chichester A&E with embarassingly superficial scuffs. These I picked up by succeeding in avoiding wiping out two little kids on one lap the...

Re: Athens-to-Atlanta (A2A) Road Skate Registration Open

My God Bish, what have you done with to yourself? The short version is it was a lesson to all who doubt whether helmets are a good idea.... even with wearing a helmet it was a case of over the handlebars/knock yourself out cold/stop breathing/get cpr/get helicopter ride/wake up in CT machine/get mo...

Re: Athens-to-Atlanta (A2A) Road Skate Registration Open

Did you chaps come up with a cunning plan for the flights and accommodation? I'm in the UK grovelling a visa and plan/hope to be on the West Coast when the event is on. I'm happy that I can actually book my flights/registration etc assuming I am in the US - only minimal risk Uncle Sam will turn down...

For those that are travelling from the UK can we get together post Sunday stroll and chat about options for getting there and accommodation etc so we can pool up and save as much as possible?

Re: Athens-to-Atlanta (A2A) Road Skate Registration Open

I'm planning to see it I can shave something off last year's 8:07 - which is not far off the time it takes to fly London->Atlanta I have acquired some comedy length skates with 100mm wheels; still no lycra yet, buth there's time. I may be in California at the time too. Who knows; this year I may ska...

Re: Great Es-Skate: Miami February 2010

The hostel did seem to have a large unruly crowd that wore skates at breakfast, sported matching "Seba" T-Shirts and talked about "Skading" and friends they know in "Seaddle" and "'Lanta"; but appart from that, it was, as suggested, brilliant ( as long as you...

Re: Great Es-Skate: Miami February 2010

I would recommend Miami Beach Hostel generally - free food, better facilities, a lot more fun. Closer to the clubs, if you are into that kinda thing. I would recommend Clay Hostel for its location very close the Esskate hotel. If you are arriving early, some of Naomi's group will be at the Miami Be...

The up side of the cheap flights is I get to see Atlsk8r's home town ( airport ) for a few hours on the way in and out.
