Race Update

Written by T Dobbin
Currently most of the teams and skaters who race the marathon season are currently in Austria at the Weissensee. The next race in the Weissensee is tomorrow with a 200 kilometer race for both the men and women. The major race of the week is Saturday's open Dutch National Championships where on Saturday morning the ladies will race a 60 kilometer and the men a 100 kilometer.

At the moment and like every year all the contract negociations are going on in Austria. After this alot of teams will know who is changing teams and who is staying where. It's difinately a tough year for a lot skaters. Some big teams are stopping and hopefully new sponsors will get on board with the marathon racing.

Keep posted for the results during this weeks racing on Natural Ice in the Weisensee.
