WIC Berlin Inline Marathon 2008

WIC Berlin 2008今週末、WICの最終戦 WIC Berlin Inline Marathon が開催されます。個人もチームも総合順位は決まったような感じですが、Max Presti 不参加なら男子上位に変動ありそうです。ゴルフのシード権獲線上にいる選手と同じように、来年の契約を考えると表彰台に上りたい気持ちが強い選手も多いと思います。去年のように雨レースにならなければ良いのですが。

Germany. Berlin the capital of Germany has 3.5 million inhabitants and is different than the other German cities: a city that never sleeps, a fascinating city, and a city that is worthy of being the final venue for the World Inline Cup. For Inline skaters, the metropolis becomes a real paradise on September 27th 2008: Berlin World Inline Cup. Once again the world’s best skaters wheel together with 8000 participants on the 42 kilometres racetrack through the metropolis with great acclamation of 200 000 spectators. And after that, the great season’s end party in the Axel Springer Passagen is the place to be. On the dance floor at the latest, when you are enveloped in the bubbling atmosphere of the shaking bodies, it is time to take off and dance through the whole night!

WIC announcement: Berlin, last WIC, big finale

Still one marathon to race, and the 2008 season is over. But it's big deal with the Real Marathon of Berlin, the unique mix between running and skating marathon.
Vincent Esnault, Sep. 24, 2008
Just imagine a circuit taking the biggest avenues of one of the main capital city of Europe. Just imagine a race on a Saturday afternoon, in front of thousands of people, and with thousands of skaters. It's unique, it's the WIC finale, and it's in Berlin.

There will probably be more than 8000 skaters at start. Among them, the squad of Rollerblade MPC World, with real chances to win. Last year, Nicolas Iten captured the berliner crown, whereas Laura lardani finished with the bronze.

Rollerblade is also one of the sponsors of the event. The brand will give 200 MP3/MP4 during the week-end. You'll just have to get some chance to win one...

At least, the event will be broadcasted on TV on RBB (Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg) between 15:30 to 17:30. It's unique, but it's Berlin!

Hi Skaters,

Well the ladies overall winner has been sorted for a while & the top 3 have been decided, but 2nd & 3rd not finalized, but a BONT WHEELS 1,2 & 3.

Now Yann Guyader the Frenchman from Alessi Powerslide has won the mens overall,if he lines up in Berlin or not. with 946 points in the bank.

With the demise of Luca Saggioratto, Francesco Zangarini & Diego Rosero , in the wet Berlin Coni X race & not collecting any points,the challenge is over. But 5 skaters Saggioratto 803, Presti 767, Zangarini 744, Francolini 739 & Rosero 720 pts are all linning up to fight out,whoexactly will flank Guyader on the dias.

Max Presti seems to have recovered from a Biel health scare, with a win a week later in the Tough Inline 111km St. Gallen, so he should front. Lets hope its not wet, as Saggioratto is not a renowned wet weather skater for sure & would be likely to slip further down the ladder.
