Hilde Goovaerts wins for CadoMotus in Berlin WIC!

Final Victory! Hilde, caught mid-smile by the camera flash as she takes victory in front of the Brandenburger Gate.
The CadoMotus World Ladies Team took their first victory in the final World Inline Cup of the year, as Hilde Goovaerts (BEL) won ahead of Sabine Berg (GER, Powerslide.de) and Laura Lardani (ITA, Sportvital/RB) in Berlin yesterday.

It was a heavy marathon that concluded the WIC season, with rain falling and the streets slick with water over the fast and highly-regarded Berlin course. Despite the conditions, one of the World's most popular marathons still started with some 7600 skaters.

In difficult circumstances, both the mens and womens races split with lead groups separating themselves from the main field fairly early in the event (5 athletes getting away in the mens event, and 10 athletes in the ladies).

Victory to Hilde on the DualMount frame & StormSurge wheels

Hilde skated on the new CadoMotus DualMount frame (providing an even 4x100 wheelbase to 195 AND 165mm boots) adding a WIC title to the growing list of victories on the versatile new model - holding off German junior Sabine Berg and the Sportvital RB trio of Lardani, Penan and Neuling in a tight finish with the first 9 girls all within 1-second. Hilde rode to victory while stuck to the otherwise slick road surface by the MPC StormSurge wheels, which have redefined wet-weather skating during 2007 and provided a level of grip in the rain that has until now, never been available.

These are interesting results in both races, with Sabine Berg (GER) - Junior European and World Champion (and still in the Junior ranks) taking the podium for the first time in the womens WIC event. In the Mens, Nicholas Iten (SWI) takes his second win of the season with his new team - winning the first event of 2007 in Seoul, Korea and now also the last event in Berlin. Peter Michael - 3-time Junior World Champion in Korea 2006 and skating his first WIC season, is on the podium for the second time, taking equal second in Berlin with Roger Schneider after winning on a solo escape in Engadin.

Hilde finishes 2007 on the best possible note: Winning the Netherlands 'World on Wheels' competition overall after claiming a number of victories during the season, and adding the WIC finale win in Berlin to her podium performance in the Rennes WIC (also in the rain).

Congratulations Hilde, and all the girls of the CadoMotus World Ladies team for such a successful first year in 2007!

Berlin WIC winners

Hi Skaters,

Hilde Goovaerts Belguim Cado Motus world team from Belguim, won her first WIC event, after showing some good form during the season.

Now with a settled life pattern & good training, she has been able to turn the clock back Many years. In 1995 in Perth Australia, Hilde then a very young senior won the World marathon title.


Jannitta Spigt & Nachi Shinozuka

Nicole Begg
In the tough wet weather Rennes Marathon 6 of the first 7 who fought out that race, fought out the finish of Berlin, with only Jana Gegner missing, who missed the vital breakaway.

This time the suprize being the 2nd place by the German Junior World Champion Sabine Berg Powerslide Germany & a good 4th place by Rollerblades Catherine Penan, after her 2nd in Mainz the week before.


The race started out with Nicole Begg instigating most the early attacks to try & split the field, Sara Bak the DEnmark skater from Rollerblade Speedodrom Austria, got active also in the second half of the race.

An 11 skater breakaway occured just after half way & none of the strong Colombian World champions were in it, possibly the cold & very wet & Slippery conditions, negating them from being effective with their power push, Begg was keen to ensure they were not around for the sprint finish.

The first of the strong Colombian group to Finish was Duluth Winner & 20,000n meter World champion Bridytte Mendez in 53rd position, almost 9 mins behind the winning group.

In the Cold Conditions only Nelson Garzon done well of the Colombians, he is from Bogota, the Cali skaters, would have felt the cold.

For the 2nd race in a row the breakaway group came in almost 2 mins ahead of the main bunch of 17 remaining skaters, led in by Andrea Hartichelhar Athleticum 12th & Katja Ulbrich Experts Race team 13th.

Sandra Gomez Alessi Powerslide was in the break this week, but blew her chance of the WIC individual overall title, when she finished 11th & last of the 11 person breakaway.


In a day when shufflers ruled, the Worlds Superstar & 3 times World champion Joey Mantia Lugino USA made a lot of people happy by finishing 109 th, Hans Brown from London made British History, by being the first Pom to ever beat Joey Mantia.

Already there has been some interesting rubbish about Joey & the race, so lets put it straight.
  1. Joey's first mistake was being Loyal to his sponsors products.
  2. His 2nd Mistake was starting on Gear he had no chance on at all for a power skater.
  3. His 3rd was to allow every skater who made half an effort to beat him, he should have graciously just slipped of the side of the track & dissapeared.
But Joey is a sportsman & proved he can take the good with the bad!

I spoke to Joey before & after the race, also to those around him at the start & others who passed him. He said himself that for the first 20km people kept passing him, now that adds up, the half way split Joey was 5 minutes behind & in 88th place.


As Usual Joey likes getting away fast, after a very short trip down the road Joey was Ice Skating ( I thought he had not got involved with the USA Whipp programme yet ) a couple of Kiwi guys who shot past, saw him looking at his wheels & shaking his head, the same as many had done in Basel & Rennes, as MPC wet weather collection ruled.

Now for those who want the real facts.
  • Mens Winner Nicolas Iten 1 hr 12 mins 30 sec.
  • Joey Mantia 109th 1 hr 23 mins 09 sec.
  • Hilde Goovaerts Ladies winner 1 hr 23 mins 20 sec.
So Joey had a taste of reality in Berlin, he has previously Thrashed the rest of the World & this time he was on the wrong end of the thrashing.

Afterall it gives the rest of the World Hope, that even Superman, can be beaten on a bad day, but like the good sportsman he is, Joey took it on the Chin.


Overall results on WIC 2007 Thread shortly.
