Get yer miles in!   Save your pennies for a flight!  

The Netherlands is not to be missed.   The Dutch crew is the most welcoming, fun bunch to skate and post-skate chill with.   Lonneke and Lennart have taken their grassroots ultra hosting up a notch and turned this into an incredibly well run World Ranking Event!!   They kick off promptly and run on an excellent, professional grade timing system.   So many awesome memories from last year.

JULY 1st 2017 -- I think they'll be capping it around 100 skaters??!

Almost ten years ago the Dutch distance skaters synched their 24-hour ultraskates on the same weekends as Seattle and the UK. That's when we each had about 10 skaters max rolling with each other, so we pulled together across the world and texted, called or emailed in real time to pump each other up and stay strong through the night.

Zip forward to the present, where the Dutch Ultraskate sold out to 100++ skaters months ahead of the event, and people have flown into the Netherlands from all corners of the globe!!

They'll be kicking off in less than two hours. Carbo loading's done, adrenaline's pumping, music's cranking and the awesomeness of a 24-hour skate challenge is going down with some of the best, coolest, happiest, friendliest hosts the world could imagine.

As every ultraskater knows the outside elements are tough, but nothing compared with what happens inside our head. By 4 a.m. things will get mental!

So stoked for everyone there.

Skate strong -- and see you on the other side!!

Saskia is pushing hard for the women's record and 250 miles, which would net $1500 on the GBomb challenge!    

Sounds like the weather has been outstanding, a little wet and drizzly but really super comfortable temp, low wind.    This track is amazingly smooth.   Most of all the people there are awesome and now I'm missing it big time!
