Silver to Bart Swings in points elimination

(Oct. 23, 2010)
Bart Swings took the silver in the first race at the World Championships in Guarne!

The 10,000m points elimination race is one of the hardest races possible, and therefore Swings' favourite. Last year he took the victory in this event, but now Colombian Diego Rosero was a bit stronger.

The very experienced and super strong Diego Rosero took a lot of points early in the race, a gab that could not be closed anymore by the Belgian talent. Rosero took 23 points, Swings 16 and the bronze went to New Zealander Peter Michael (11p).

In the ladies points elimination, Italian Simona di Eugenio took the gold, while Nachi Shinozuka surprisingly took the silver and Dutch Anniek ter Haar the bronze. One of the big favourites Nicole Begg finished just outside the podium.

TT 300m World Record


by X-tech (Oct. 23, 2010)
Rained out mens 300 T/T, bad news for some, but great for MPC.

Winner Colombian Andres Munoz
  • Qualifying 24.694 sec Matter Wheels
  • Final rained out 24.575 Matters
  • Real Final 24.009 World Record MPC ROAD WARS.
SUPERSTAR Joey Mantia sponsored by Simmons, Shankel & Matter wheels, alleged to be the highest paid skater in the World & deservedly so.
  • Qualifying 11th just made it 24.754 sec on Sponsors Brand Matter.
  • Rained out Final Improvement 24.542 on Atom his previous sponsor
  • Final Final 2nd 24.253 on MPC Road War Firms, not his sponsor, but the wheel winning approx 90% of the Medals.
So the story goes on, as everyone tries to Hunt down the MPC firms, that are in very short supply.


(Oct. 25, 2010)
New Zealander & X-TECH MPC INTERNATIONAL TEAM STAR Peter Michael was the first accross the line at the end of the 10 km Points Elimination race, in a time of 14 minutes 36 .341 secs to break the Current World record time set by Bart Swings in Haining last year of 14 mins .41.425 sec, taking 5 secs off the old World record on MPC Road War firms & E-TECH IS Plates.

Second silver medal for Bart Swings

(Oct. 24, 2010)
Bart Swings took another silver medal in the 15k elimination race. Caught between two Colombians, he once again showed his class.

Helper Maarten Swings was eliminated early in the race, and therefore Bart had to fight alone, against strong duo's, specifically the Colombian super stars Diego Rosero and Jorge Cifuentes. Cifuentes took the gold, Rosero the bronze.

Meanwhile, 90% of the World titles go to MPC Road War wheels. Andres Munoz, winning the 300 meter in a new World record, did it with Road War wheels. Joey Mantia captured the gold in the 500 meter, also on MPC.

Tomorrow the 1,000 meter and the relay are scheduled. Two new chances for Swings to go for the gold, although the tournament so far has been incredible.

Andres Munoz = World Champion

Editor: Scott Arlidge (Oct. 23, 2010)
Last night rain postponed the final of the senior men's 300m TT until this morning. There was no postponing Andres Munoz though. The Powerslide skater won the 300m TT and in the process took almost 0.2 seconds off the World Record with a time of 24.009. We also understand that he covered the first 100m in an incredible 9.12 seconds. (VIDEO : )

Final track day: Swings fourth, De Vries fifth

(Oct. 25, 2010)
At the final day of racing at the track in Guarne, CadoMotus athletes performed great, but unfortunately, no medals were added.

Elma de Vries qualified for the 1,000 meter final, leading the complete semi final race, making the final on fastest time. In the final, Brygite Mendez took another Colombian gold and Elma finished on a nice fifth place.

The Joey Mantia Show (500m and 1.000m)
Bart Swings just missed another medal in the 1,000 meter final, having to compete against Cifuentes and Munoz from Colombia and Mantia (USA). Mantia took the victory, Swings came in fourth. Some time later, he took another fourth spot with his team mates Ferre Spruyt and Maarten Swings.

"I have mixed feelings", says Swings. "The track is done. Two times silver when gold is so close... And two times fourth, I can't be happy with that place".
