If you apply for the World Championships come and support us? He needs me to know the views of competitors, who were with us to determine whether we support the candidacy.

We were 19 Latvians in Policka ( 15 riders ) and we got 16 (!!!) podium places ! ! !

Personally me, I want to say huge THANK YOU to all the organizers (it was my 4th European championship and 10th for my father (first for him was in 1988!)), to my friend Aivars who lend me his new ETTSEXETT trucks so I could finish on podium 3 times (3rd place in tight,special,hybrid and overall) with my superfast FULLBAG LOUIS RICARD model and to all competitors - it was nice to meet you all again and it was great that we had a guest from Colorado - the World champion Martin Reeves!

Congratulations to all the champions and medalists ! ! !

WOW! Thats a long freaki'n video! Very nice indeed!! Even though I didn't understand anything what was said I understand that Mr Thiele probably speak even faster than he skates :)

Congrats to all the winners, and a special shout out to Mika Hadestrand who was able to DQ in a straight course and get it in slow motion on national television... :D

Fun Times

Post by Joyce Wheldrake » Fri Aug 14, 2009 1:48 pm

Last night I got home from my side trip to Amsterdam, after Policka. Easily that was the best organized contest I have ever been to. The fat guy you will see lots when you are there, he is the starter, he worked and drank hard all weekend.
So nice to meet many new friends, and get reacquainted with old friends. Im still in a good mood from going to the best SkateParty ever in Policka. They take care of all the needs of the racers; food, bananas, apples, water, TV screen to see the results so you dont have to bother timing guys.
Its good, go next year if you can. Thanks for the memories.

Hi Joyce,
we are very happy that you flew to us from Canada. Next year will be racing again and we look forward too, that the cost was coming and the beer is definitely a welcome drink. You are super woman. We would like every three years to organize the World Championships and if you say that we will be very happy. Next year is looking forward to the sight as much drinking and waved their hands.

Thanks very much to the Czeck Team for putting on a really great event with variation and entertainment worthy of a European Championships. The hospitality was super good and my head and ribs are still recovering. Here's a few shots from the English perspective:

Thanks for a fine race, and the welcome shown by all the Czech skaters.
Me, Sam and Louis enjoyed looking around Brno too. a lovely town.
Big thanks to Dalibor for taking us to great pubs and driving us around Brno.
Can someone send me his email so I can thank him?
