@Antonio: It is not a Giant slalom it is a Giant SPECIAL. You will like it the course will go from a sort of Giant into a tight course, with the cone distance getting tighter and tighter. Very demanding and fun.

@Rob: Great news looking forward to seeing you all here!!



Tot ziens!

There are many. Maybe the best option is to head to The Dam and to the pub right next door to the De Bijenkorf (the big department store)....I forgot how it is called, but I will ask. It is a big place, difficult to miss. Rob has my number, call once you guys are here. See you tomorrow! Ernst, Jeroen, Bart and Cyril will also join.

Have a safe trip!!!!!!!!

Now, once more, we have done it again. It is not easy, but we love doing it.

Thank you to all the racers that came by, for their amazing display of technique and for their support and patience.

Congratulations to all the winners!!

Thank you to the City of Amsterdam for making this possible.

Thank you to all the sponsors

And my especial *****THANK YOU**** to my good friends of the Dutch Crew, a bunch of dedicated slalom skaters that do their best to put this contest together. I don't need to mention your names, you know who you are.

There are quite a few pictures published on Facebook, take your time to have a look at them.

Bo Scradijn, Milo and Mella. You are the future, I loved every single moment of you guys racing. That is for me much more important then all the skateboarding contests I took part in my life since 1974. Keep on skating little dudes!!!!!!

We will be on tv this evening, AT 5 on 7:30, I will see if I can record it and post it.

Tot 2011.
