WIC Wolvega 2008 in Holland

今年からオランダで始まった Holland Inline Cup にはWICと共催の2レースが含まれています。5月7日の Steenwijk 初戦に続き、いよいよオランダ初のWIC が5月18日に Wolvega で開催されます。残念なコトに、WICのホームページは詳しいインフォメーションがアップされていません、しかも開催日が5月17日と成っていて・・・まったくの機能不全です。とりあえず、HICとPatinCarrera.comを参考に更新しています。間違っていたら、ごめんなさいデス。

The Holland Inline Cup (HIC) exists only of four races. We had no possibilities to extend the program, due to lack of time. However, in the future we would like to extend the program of the Holland Inline Cup competition.

The four races in the HIC start with a mass start. This is common in races abroad and in the World Cup. The top skaters start first row. In the longer term we like to start based on personal bests. This is already the case in Germany. All participants are obliged to skate with transponders and all times will be officially ranked.

Two races of the HIC will be World Inline Cup races. It means a tremendous upgrading of the Dutch skating sport, due to all of the famous skaters who will skate this races. And there will be a lot of media interest. We hope and expect every skater in Holland will start in the two World Inline Cup races and that counts as the best promotion for the sport.

The Route Map of the Wolvega WIC



オランダ初のWIC Wolvega 2008、終わってみれば予想外の混戦でした。男女ともに予想を外したメンバーが独占しました。その分だけ、何か「華」が無いぎこちない表彰式に成ったようです。それにしてもノリに乗っているコロンビアのBont IDRD Bogotaチームの赤いユニフォームがヨーロッパ席捲しそうですネ。


Wolvega - Host city of the first official World Inline Cup in Netherlands

The weather was great! All the WIC Teams at the start. Additionally 18 Dutch Teams with some very good ice skaters. The course - one 45k lap - of course flat.

During the race there were about two or three breakaways. A group of three skated about 10k before the finish away. Only a cool skating Colombian, Antonio Ruales Ceron (Bont IDRD Bogota Positiva), closed the gap almost alone and won at the end the final sprint.

WIC Wolvega

by Bill Begg (May 19, 2008)
A Dream result for BONT, On a course that tested gear to the limit, the new slightly stiffer Flex adjustable hub BONT wheel came through.

Antonio Ruales became the first to ever finish a marathon race on them & whats more, it was first place. in the prestigioius first ever Wolvega WIC marathon.

The Organizors presented the winners with lovelly phillips & Samsung flat screen TV's.

After being leaders in the Boot market for many years, Bont successfully gabbed a good market share with their innovative 3 point skates, now they are seriously competing for a share of the wheel market.


Results speak louder than Words & today was a very big day, catapulting them up the wheel ladder.

It was a good test day for equipment, one WIC leading contendors race canme to an abrupt end, when his front wheel collapsed under the harsh conditions, a cruel blow indeed, when you are one of the Worlds top skaters.

In the ladies Alexandra, Tamara & Nicole were all prominent in the breakaways throughout the race, with Alexandra being on the one that couted about 12 km out from the finish.

She found herself with Nadine Gloor,Elma De Vries & later joined by Lina Holguin all of whom worked to keep the break alive, to finish about 36 sec ahead of the main group.

A few skaters crashed out of contention, Roger Schneider, Max Presti, Nicolas Iten, Wayne Begg, DJ Nation, Peter Micheal, Severin Widmar,Alex Singinberger, just amongst the ones I am aware of.

But there were a lot of pluses.
  1. A very good top class field.
  2. Two Dutch skaters on the podium, both very good Ice Marathon Skaters & DSB Ice team Ingmar Berga 2nd & Elma De Vries 3rd.
  3. Plenty of enthusiasm amongst a decent crowd of spectators.
  4. In an Interview with Roy the Boy Boeve he told me his goodmate Bob Hadders from Habovo was worried before the race, that the pace might be to much for him. it became, a long tough grind & Hadders in the breakaway,found the constant pace to his liking to end

First WIC podium in Wolvega

by Reyon Kay (May 20, 2008)

The WIC race in Holland was held on a very physical and difficult course. The race was one lap covering 46km starting and finishing in host town Wolvega.
There were very tough sections of cobble stones, one that lasted over 2km! Combined with windy conditions it would prove to be a difficult day.

The race started like every other WIC race, full on! Lots of attacks and Zepto worked very well together to have at least one Zepto skater in each attack and potential break away.

After 15km there was the long section of cobble stones and soon after was the windy section alone the dyk. The combination of the two areas proved to be difficult for most skaters.

17km from the finish a break away of two skaters went off the front Pascal Briand (Powerslide Phuzion) and Rob Hadders (Habovo) to maintain a reasonable gap. Looking threatening Nico helped Reyon to a good position so he could go across to the break away alone.

This break away of three, including Reyon from Zepto worked well together to maintain the established gap on the peloton.

As the finish was near the pack came close to catching the break away of three. 5km from the finish two other skaters Antonio Ruales (BONT IDRD) and Ingmar Berga (DSB) made it over to join the break away that would stay away until the end.

As the sprint unfolded the Colombian Ruales was fast in the final 300m. Passing Reyon to win the race and bringing Ingmar through for 2nd. Reyon crossing the line in 3rd

The Zepto team worked very well together to achieve the first WIC podium for 2008. Scott and Nico did a lot of work during the race and Jan had some bad luck with a technical difficulty.

Next weekend is another very hard race in Rennes, France. Hopefully the recent form from Zepto Skate Team will continue!

Thanks for reading, Reyon Kay

WOLVEGA WIC: inside the PS Phuzion team

today was the world inline cup in Wolvega, NL. all team member was here except Kwinten Tas because he had to race national belgium championship. the team meet saturday evening in hotel HOLLAND INN Wolvega. on sunday morning after breakfast we went to check the 46 km race lap. that's a really cool lap with 3km of small stones like "paris roubaix"...and a super nice wind to make the race harder.
Nicolas had a back pain so he went to see a phisio in TEW in the hotel. he got 3 sessions to help to fix. thanks Yves for the help.

sunday 12H, pascal did some resistance streching with Bob Cooley to make my body ready for te race.
13h30 all team went to the start line to sign for the race near the podium. 30min later we were on the starting line. we start wind in the back so for the 1ST 15km the pack wa flying under the attack from the matter team... few skater crash sometimes including Peter Mickael.... Powerslide phuzion team was waiting in the midle of the group. when we arive on the first serie of small stones road (2km) nicolas zamudio make some attack and Kalon Dobbin too...but it didn't work...then arjan smit and dj nation breakway for 5km long... one columbian chase them and the pack was then compact.

soon we had to turn left and wind woul be in the face.....Pascal Briand attack just before this turn with a guy from Habovo team...and make a gap of about 30sec..... 5km later a skater from zepto was able to come back alone....this 3 skaters stay 30sec ahead for almost 15km....then ingmar berga and a columbian come back on them 5km from the finish... the 5 skater keep a 20sec advance on a furious pack till the finish... the columbian guy won in front of ingmar and Ryan form Zepto.
