DSB Bank Marathon Team

DSB BankDSB Bank と言えばインラインの実績だけで Chad Hedrick と契約し、その後、オリンピックで活躍した彼と共に世界的に有名になったスポンサーです。先日、2匹目のどじょうを狙ったのか WIC Sportvital Rollerblade の Shane Dobbin が DSB Bank Marathon Team の6番手として加入しました。残念ながら、未だホームページに Shane Dobbin の名は見当たりませんが、そのチーム練習風景が SkatePodium.com で紹介されています。

I hope that Shane Dobbin will be a poster boy for DSB Bank, Holland's second-largest bank, like Chad Hedrick.

初めてリンクに入った映像を見て・・・その後の Shane Dobbin が気に成ってました。最近のビデオを見ると・・・以前と滑りが違います。3Km TT ではフランスの Briand Pascal に近いタイムまで速くなってます。NZ代表でバンクーバーに出られるかも。( YouTube Video 3km TT: 03:57.70 )

Wayne Begg and Shane Dobbin, Kwis living the ice dream! Jan 2008

Just recently Shane raced his first long track race guided by his DSB coach Jan Martien de Wetering and finished 3000m in 3min 57 seconds. That time was a NZ record and hopefully just the start of things to happen for Shane and the other athletes he inspires from pacific countries to have a go at this beautiful sport.
