Transfer Market in WIC 2010

World Inline Cup.com年間数百億円掛かるとは思っていなかったので、HONDA に続き TOYOTA の F1 撤退も、日本のこの経済状況では当然の成り行きでしょう。ところで、インラインのレース最高峰といわれる World Inline Cup のチームスポンサーは年間幾ら掛かるのでしょう。2009年ランキング1位に成った Diego Rosero の勝因はボーナスポイント200のアジア、中南米で優勝した事です。海外遠征費を調達できない弱小チームにしてみれば、スタートラインにさえ立つ事ができないアンフェアなレース組織としか思えないでしょう。

A sport that moves the world

A Resume (Nov. 20, 2009)
What a dramatic final! The height of the season in the Carribean! An emotional and thrilling World Cup 2009 had come to its end on the Isla Margarita and with this a unique worldwide inline series, the WORLD INLINE CUP!


In a hot showdown the Colombian superstar Diego Rosero (Rollerblade World) beat the - up to the last race - leading French Yann Guyader and thus won the palm of the overall winner. He drove the race of this live, demonstrating how strong he is.

The overall victory of his girl-friend Cecilia Baena couldn't certainly comfort him for being only second. But the Colombian sprinter called “Checky” (Powerslide Matter World) was the outstanding female skater of the whole season, unbeatable in the end.

The WORLD INLINE CUP 2009 ended with a spectacular race taking place in an exotic atmosphere and a beautiful scenery. The athletes not only met on the track but also on the wonderful beach with its sensational clubs and parties, like the “White Party” on the opening day and finally the “End-of-Season-Party” with the prize giving ceremony. A scenery nobody will certainly forget soon.

Looking back to the whole season with its venues in Colombia, France, the Czech Republic, Spain, Korea and Switzerland, everybody can see that the WORLD INLINE CUP has now become what it is proposed to be: a worldwide prestigious inline race series. We are very proud to say that we have been able to achieve this in the first year under the new leadership. But we don’t want to forget all those people who contributed with their assistance that the WORLD INLINE CUP could be realized in such a way. We say thank you to:

The team, the industry, the numerous organizers and people who work without expecting any proceeds for it, but were living 24 hours a day, seven days a week only for this sport.

We say thank you to all skaters for the thrilling races, to the teams and team owners for their individual and large financial support, to the confederations, esp. the FIRS with its president Sabatino Aracu and the CIC president Roberto Marotta for giving support. Moreover we thank all organizers, patrons and helping hands, who organized the races in some of the most interesting places in the World. Guido Ferraiuolo from Patincarrera stands in place of all those helping in the background, as well as Fabian Arcila and Chechy’s papa Eugnio. Without them a WIC races in South America would not have been possible!

Last but not least our thanks got to all who believe in speed skating. To all who don't only focus on short-time trends but on an exiting, fascinating sport. We will show this again in 2010 and are glad that many brands and enterprises make it possible that the teams and the top athletes can take part in the WIC. They won't get disappointed, because we will make the WORLD INLINE CUP 2010 stronger and the venues as attractive as this year. We will come back to Colombia and Venezuela and will have beautiful races in the Netherlans, France, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Spain and certainly in Switzerland. We are already looking forward to seeing you in March 2010 on the occasion of the first start of the WIC series.
WORLD INLINE CUP: A sport that moves the world


さて、2010年の WIC チーム編成はどのようになるのでしょう。先日、Bill Begg 氏はヨーロッパを離れ活動拠点をアジアオセアニアにするとし、ZEPTO Skate Team はホームページで今年の大晦日12月31日に消滅すると告知。噂では、Scott Arlidge は Powerslide に移籍、そして Diego Rosero が Bont Arena に入るとかWIC 勢力図が大きく変わりそうな雰囲気です。とにかく、アメリカやアジアのチームが参加しない WIC の魅力や存在意義は何なのか考えさせられる今日この頃です。

World Inline Cup Calendar 2010

We are pleased to give you an exclusive overview on the exciting collection of existing and new events.


We are extremely pleased to announce the WIC 2010 featuring a total of 18 events in 12 countries, with a total prize money of more than US$ 300'000 on offer.

With this newest edition, the World Inline Cup will assume additional responsibility as an ambassador of the fascination and values of the inline skating movement throughout the world, whilst growing the WIC awareness and public perception as the leading international speed skating series.

The season 2010 will also count new, attractive developments, including a number of track races and the elevation of a few events into the status of “Grand Prix Events”.
Furthermore and with view to the still difficult economic environment for our sport, the World Inline Cup Organization will support WIC teams and athletes with transportation allowances for multiple travels to Asia and Latin America.

More detailed announcements, including the updated WIC Rulebook will be made and posted to the WIC Website in the weeks to come. So, please stay tuned!

May we take the opportunity to thank you for your support in the past season and to wish all skaters and the inline community all the best for the New Year 2010, and lots of success and fun with our beloved sport.

With kindest regards,
your WIC and IGUANA team,

Heinz Schurtenberger : WIC President
Markus Ott : WIC General Secretary

TRANSFER MARKET 2010

Bill Begg (Dec. 5, 2009)
Hi All,

Well Rumours only, but some a done deal.

Scott Arlidge Zepto to Powerslide, done deal at Europeans, Not just results, but equipment testing & reporting, well need to as Atom, from the same Factory & same family of Urathanes appeared to have it over Matter.

Diego Rosero to Bont Arena, still conjecture but rumours stronger by the day, But this rumour & negotiations have been going on since around 2004, but with Rollerblade & many other pro teams in doubt, perhaps it is the real deal, with Cali teamate Tobon.

Felix Rijhen to Powerslide International, badly needed someone with current form, a solo 3rd in the mens marathon is rated as good form & Powerslide the German based team, Felix ( The Cat ) might just get his well earned Bowel of cream.

Nicole & Wayne Begg to x-Tech based in Asia.

Well Roli, he will just continue to run his skate shop & group skates from his shop in Gripensee! lol Roli.
