Announcement Essent Cup 6 in Assen

Written by T Dobbin

This Saturday evening will be the sixth Essent Cup to be held in Assen. Assen is the home club rink of Shane aswell as Dj Nation and both will be wanting to have a strong race being so close to home. Assen is just 30 minutes from where they are currently living. Assen rink is closed over the 400 meter baan but open in the center. With the center open and the temperatures cold at the moment it will allow the ice to stay good or at least alot better during the races.

Yesterday at the official team training from DSB Bank, Shane Dobbin was asked by his coach Peter de Vries to skate in the A grade again this weekend. Of course it's a honour for Shane to race in the A grade and will be ready to work hard and have a good, strong race for the team.

Dj Nation will be skating in the first division again on Saturday and hoping to continue his good result from last weekend.

The ladies race starts first at 18:30 followed by the A grade men at 19:30 and the final event of the evening is the first division starting at 20:45. The A grade men's race can be viewed live on the internet with this link coming soon for tomorrow's race!

Also racing this weekend in the long track events held in Enschede are New Zealander Wayne Begg racing both on Saturday & Sunday, as well as Australian's Sophie Muir, Daniel Greig, Brooke Lochland, Hong Kong's Daniel Yoew & racing just on Sunday Frenchmen Alexis Contin racing after he will be taking start in the A grade marathon on Saturday night.

Keep posted for results which will be coming soon.
