The Coni X-Race 2008

写真を見ると雨が土砂降りの中で実施されたようです。常勝 Joey Mantia の姿なく、これでシーズン優勝は Yann Guyader に決まったようです。女子は MPC Wheel からサポートを受けている CadoMotus の Hilde Gouvarts が BONT チームの Cecilia Banea と Nicole Begg を退けて優勝。今回の雨でウィールの差が微妙に出たようです・・・と言いたいのですが、WIC選手の皆さんはMPCが提供した同じレイン用ウィールを履いていたようです。

Coni X Race WIC

by Bill Begg (Aug. 24, 2008)
Well after a season of dry weather WIC races the skys opened in Berlin & at times the rain was very heavy, with a driving wind.

MPC wheels had a field day on the slippery & treachorus Berlin roads, as every top skater dived into their reserve wheels, as from last years experience, even the great Joey Mantia could not manage to finish in the top 100 with out them.

Alexanda Jose Bastidas BONT BACATA from Venezuela wrapped up a great season with backing up a 2nd in Rennes, by winning the bunch sprint in front of 40 other title aspirants, but there were suprises galore, with the minor skating powers well represented, former Frenchman now Austrian domicilled, the experienced campaigner Matheiu Grandgirard Rollerblade Austria was 2nd, the young Swiss skater Severin Widmer X-Tech Crocs , who has done everything except win one this season was 3rd.

Now they showed at the europeans, that they were no Bunnies, with Mazur, as one of the Polish team officials at the European Juniors, probably exceeding his wildest dreams by finishing 4th, in a photo finish with Francolini 5th, Kung X - Tech was 6th, with another suprise Simoni Denmark 7th, before the First German skater Nico Weildiwilt 8th, Yann Guyader wrapped up 9th to tie up the CIC overall for 2008 with Felix Rijhen rounding out the top 10 finishers,
The ladies race was a triump for the wet weather godess Hilde Goovearts Cado Motus from Belguim, who won the sprint from the 4 BONT WHEELS girls Cecilia Baena & Nicole Begg, on the dias for 2nd & 3rd, Alexandra Vivas was 4th & Tamara Llorens 5th.

For BONT WHEELS its been a great early season finish, as they have put beyond any doubt that they will now take out the 1st, 2nd & 3rd overall, after wrapping up the teams overall & Cecilia Baena as overall winner in 2008.

WIC/GIC Coni X-Race: Rosero bad race, Grandgirard good race

Diego Rosero (Rollerblade MPC World) is not the leader of the German Inline Cup anymore. But Mathieu Grandgirard (Rollerblade I.B.U Speedodrom) has taken the lead of the German series today.
Vincent Esnault, 24.08.2008
The Coni X-Race has been raced under the rain today. Unfortunately, Diego Rosero did not manage to achieve a good half-marathon: the Colombian finished at the 23rd rank. Because of this result, he's not the leader of the GIC anymore: he's actually at the second place.

But Rollerblade I.B.U Speedodrom leader Mathieu Grandgirard replace him. The French alreday achieved good results in Berlin in the past (he took the bronze in 2006), and even in Germany (he won the series the same season). He finished second today, behind Alexander Bastidas! More news about the race soon...

Back to the 100mm?

The last international race was raced with 100mm wheels. Even, a large part of the men's pack turned back to the "old" diameter. Why?
Vincent Esnault, 27.08.2008
Actually, it was heavily raining in Berlin for the Coni X-Race. A large part of the skaters considered that, in these conditions, it was a best choice to compete with smaller wheels: lighter, more precise… And to stuck to the road with MPC wheels! The Storm Surge wheels were on the skates of each winner and each medalist! But it is certain that when the skies will be blue again, the 110mm diameter will come back!
Team Rollerblade: Back to the 100mm?

Overall Ranking after 10 races and 2 races of C1 class.
