2010 Outlawslalom series on TV!

We got media attention!. A team from RTVE (i.e. "Spanish BBC") came to interview us and check our skating.

Flavio, maybe the right word is not "paid" but "dedicated" (i.e. no the same riders doing cone judging). We'll change it (consider it done).

ISSA rules do not say anything about mandatory races, but we believe "elite" status (ol' major and main) should be a "complete" 3 race contest, including Giant.
