We finished with a huge flourish!
Skaters showed up on the start line with their games faces on!
What a huge surprise to have my old friend Kathy Fry show up to
take aweseome photos, chat with all of us. Look below see the photos!
The finish was more like a horse race, having to go through a video pic by pic to see if Chris Rojo (Team Safe) or Marcelo Lopez (Skin-star USA) would be 2nd or 3rd the answer? They BOTH were second! While announcing the results of the finish, someone in the crowd suggested a one lap do over first and final but, both guys were beat, so, no on that! But it was, a unique suggestion!
The skaters were happy to be there, most knew each other, but there were a few new faces and some old ones whom had not skated in awhile, but where there to support me & the event.
This was an end of years of producing this race (by skaters for skaters and only skaters)
Glad we had a nice turnout and a good time!
Thank you to all who showed up and thank you to everybody for all the years of doing this event!

See you at the start line!
