flavio: you have to put some trust into what experienced riders say troca is fast. we will build the ramps for this years event and these will add to the factor too. visit the event,skate the course competitively and then you are able to give comments on the cone setting. Don, I agree, like I alrea...

I think trocadero is steep and fast, faster then most hills, skate it first and then talk. No bad vibes, just that we go through this every year. 1,80 for the PROS great 2,00 for the AMS bad. Very bad acually. PK Oooppss, now I am getting the idea that the Trocadero is the Signal Hill of slalom ska...

Ok, I do see your point Marcus. maybe we could have different distances between cones for different types of events. So for example a Prime event would have x as distance between cones for the PRO´s and Y for the AMs and a World event would have X - 1 for the PRO´s and Y - 1 for the AM´s.

With all the respect, I am new to slalom racing in Europe, but I have been skating long enough to have very good reasons to say that the amateurs can do 2mts and some of them even the 1,80.

Hi Vincent;

From Schiphol (AMS Airport) you can take a train to Amsterdam (Central Station) , the journey takes 22 minutes and costs 3,60 Euros one way.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi Don,
I will set my Axe 2 to GS so I kind of hope it will more or less do the job.
I don´t think I will have any trouble getting down the ramp, it is getting up on it that worries me... :-)

A race in Amsterdam, I've only been waiting for this since... before I knew what slalom was. Count me in. Can we start with the most technical course the first day and just open it up from there, something tells me my skating won't be improving over the course of that weekend. lol Good idea :-)
