Starting off January with a bang
Happy New Year folks!
The good new is that I made my flight! Yay! It only took around 7 hours instead of 1 but we made it in the end, perhaps with a hint of raindeer power. 2011 is looking good so far, despite now having a slightly rounder figure thanks to the obligatory feasting. It was all worth it though!

In other news, some big races are already being talked about state-side. The date of next stage of the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon in San Diego has been tentatively put forward as the 19/03/11. If the Miami event was anything to go by, then this race will really go off!
A special three-day stage race in Georgia-Alabama is set to see the light of day in May – more information also here. This multi-day race is not for the faint-hearted (it’ll be around 200 miles in 2 days) but should take place on one of the most beautiful Greenways in the USA: The Silver Comet Trail.
This ‘Tour de France’ style format is yet another new direction for long distance skateboarding and testimony to the creativity of people, like Marion Spear Karr who is heading the organisation of Georgia-Alabama event in May. By the sounds of things, along with marathons, this is set to catch on as there is already talk of similar events in Holland and Wales later on this year. Let’s wait and see…
