Alexis Contin quits the ice track races

Alexis の記事によると Powerslide Phuzion に所属していた Alexis Contin が今月末でオランダのアイススケートチーム DSB から抜ける決断をしたそうです。WIC優勝した18歳の頃から21歳まで、1年中、インラインかアイスのレースに出ていたので、燃え尽きてしまったのかも知れません。昨年のWICでも成績悪かったし Powerslide で再起を図るのか、古巣 Rollerblade に復帰するのか定かではありませんが、故郷フランスに腰を落ち着かせたいような記事の内容です。

Alexis Contin はアイス長距離がフィールド、たとえ対戦相手に勝っても最終的には時間で順位は決まる訳で・・・孤独で虚しい自分との戦いです。その点、インラインマラソンはゴールで勝てば勝ち、分かり易いし条件も同じです。まだアイスマラソンには引かれているそうなので、また戻る可能性が残されています。個人的な問題なのかも知れませんが、インラインからアイスに参戦して頂上を目指すなら、いずれどちらか一方を選択しないと、先々、両方モノにならない事が危惧されます。

"He felt that he made too little progress and he could no longer motivate. Likely he now wants to return to France and he return inline skate".

From an eventual transition to the DSB-marathonschaatsteam is Heetebrij no question, even though that team with riders is busy. "But I can not prejudge things, so I no statements about".

Alexis is quitting longtrack and returns to the inlinetrack.

Alexis Contract wih DSB expired at the end of January. Long track is not exciting & he had not been enjoying it. Also the progress had not been happening, so he was having trouble motivating himself. He enjoys skating the Ice marathons, so perhaps he may continue with them. But it looks like he will return to France & Focus on the World Inline Champs. He is still a young man, so has time on his side.
