I was on a mission to get there so after a few phone calls and text messages, I quickly assembled a road crew of 3, and off we were to embark on one of the years biggest rollerblading events. I was impressed to see some of the worlds best am skaters in attendance. Athletes traveled from Japan, the UK, and all from over the USA. There were 150 plus amateur competitors with over 60 amateur athletes competing in the advanced division in hopes of landing in the top 10. The top 10 would qualify for the AIL Elite division in which $1,000 was being awarded by Intuition skate shop. Congratulations to those who ranked top 3 in the Elite/Pro division!
