Dream Start into 2008 GBC Season for Powerslide Phuzion Teams

Last Sunday the GBC series 2008 started into its 7th season. It´s the first big race for the national skaters after the winter break and you could feel the tension of all athletes. The weather was cloudy and windy, but dry.

On Saturday the Powerslide Phuzion Men and Women started at the Prolog (Team-Time-Trail). Both teams could not start in full strength. Martin Matyk was missing on the men´s side and Sandra Wieduwilt on the womens side. The race took place on a 2k road course where the skaters had to skate for 5 laps. The teams started with a gap of 15 seconds between each other. The Powerslide PHUZION guys managed to catch 3 teams and finally finished first, 10 sec. in front of the Orana Team and 30 sec. before Subaru X-Tech. The Subaru X-Tech team started with a few WIC experienced skaters like Pier Davide Romani, Mauro Casu, Nicola Canella and Aaron Arndt.

On Sunday the 3rd OLB Inline-Marathon took place, the first GBC marathon of the season. The Powerslide Phuzion team made the race very fast starting one attack after another. After about half race around 20k when the pack catched a breakaway of Pascal Ramali and Felix Rijhnen, the new team member from Colombia, Nicolas Zamudio (Zamu) managed to escape with 7 other skaters from other teams. The pack didn´t seriously try to chase the leading group as all of the top teams had their skaters placed in there. And so the race was controlled by Powerslide Phuzion, especially by Kwinten Tas who was working and leading the pack a lot. Zamu won the sprint of the breakaway group in front of Ferre Spruyt and Wannes Van Praet (both Orana). Pascal Ramali tried to escape from the main pack 2k to go but was catched 300m before the finishline. The sprint of the pack was won by Bart Swings (Orana), Martin Matyk and Felix Rijhnen placed 11th and 14th in the overall ranking.

Nicolas Zamudio from Colombia win the first German Blade Challenge.
