AIC Orchard Road 2009

一般参加できるシンガポールの真夜中レース、AIC Orchard Road は7月25日開催です。東京なら銀座通を開放して自由に滑るって感じなのでしょうが、その頃の現地の気候が気に成ります。

Ezyhealth City Skate Cancelled due to H1N1

In view of the rapidly spreading threat of Influenza A (H1N1) in Singapore, Ezyhealth Holdings Pte Ltd regrets to announce that the Ezyhealth Cityskate 2009 has been cancelled.

The ability of Influenza A (H1N1) to spread quickly and easily from person to person has made this gathering of 4,000 skaters from all over the world an impossibility at this juncture. Ezyhealth feels that the socially responsible action to take at this point is to cancel this inaugural event and reinstate it again when H1N1 has ceased to become a threat to our participants.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to registrants of Ezyhealth City Skate 2009 and apologise for the inconvenience that has been caused to you. We will be contacting you shortly to administer a full refund of your registration fees.

To all who have supported this event as registrants and sponsors, Ezyhealth thanks you for your understanding and we look forward to providing you with new dates for the event in due time.

If you have any enquiries or feedback please feel free to email us at

Hi Skaters,

Well as more top skaters come into the AIC a bit of more interest begins to appear, in the Orchard road race there will be $5,000 Singapore Dollars at stake Mens Winner $1,500 & ladies winner $1,000 on the 25th July Midnight race, in Singapores best known city street.

Already 3 Chinese teams will be comming, plus a big team from Hong Kong, Taiwan, New Zealand will also be there, at least 3 Americans, plus some Europeans, with both increased numbers from Korea & Japan, neighbours Malaysia will be present, but the latest good news is that 5 major Indonesian clubs will be presented, Indonesian speed skating a long time not involved Internationally is Keen to hold at least 3 AIC races in 2010.

The night starts off with the recreation race, then there is the ladies & Mens half marathon AIC International races, it is hoped a few Non Europeans might compete after the World games, unfortunately the top Europeans are committed to the European Championships, at the time of the event.

On the Tuesday evening Bill & Nicole Begg will conduct a coaches & skaters coaching Clinic in Singapore.

Malaysia does not even have a speed skating Federation, but its a very sports minded nation & will host an AIC event on Saturday evening the 1st August, this full on 42 km race will be for the purists 6 laps of a 7km course starting & finishing at Patraja Bouelevard, the main street of the Political Capital.

It has a gradual climb over & back across the Bridge over the man made lake & a testing 300 meter climb, before turning & heading back, an ideal type course for the Worlds best, with 1 good climb & 2 uphill drags per circuit, the Recreation 10km will not utilize the hill section, the Marathon will be preceded by the 500 meter sprint series & hill primes & sprint primes each of the laps, with 3,2 & 1 bonus points at stake.

Yesterday AIC Marketing Manager Eddie Chua, Manager Danniel Chua & Executive consultant Bill Begg met with Malaysian AIC partner Eusoffe Chua ( Not related to Eddie & Daniel) & met with very enthusiastic members of the Patrajaya Council in Malaysia.

We disscussed logistics & are pleased to announce that there will be 5,000 ringet in Prize money, about half the value of the Singapore Dollar, but in a country where food, Accomodation & Petrol are very cheap & about half the price of neighbouring Singapore.

There will be Free bus transport available on the Wednesday for the International skaters & also another bus Sceduled for Friday, returning Sunday morning to Singapore.

The Hotel costs are being finalized now but there will be two levels available, we will have entry forms available in Singapore also, on the Thursday evening there will be a skate Coaching & Coaches Clinic run by Bill & Nicole Begg, with the possibility of other Internationals also assisting.

A great Double up weekend, as all of Asia starts to open up their doors to the AIC & new nations appearing in International speed circles.

For Publicity & promotional purposes, its very important the organizors find out who from overseas will be preszent, so please let us know to have an idea, or drop a note on the forum.

Come be part of the new exotic Asian venues as the AIC leads Asian skating to a new bright future.
