Goodwood Roller Marathon 09

This Sunday coming, 9th of August, I'm taking part in the annual race around Goodwood motor racing circuit.

11 laps = 26.62 miles against the clock.

Goodwood Roller Marathon

This year so far there are 448 people signed up, 21 of us on longboards the rest on quads or in-lines and a couple of roller skiers and the like.
Serious lycra clad speed skaters, fishnet clad roller derby birds, fat blokes on skateboards.

Last year I hit 'the wall' and lost count of how many laps I'd done and finished in 3 hrs 11 mins. This year? Well we'll see how it goes.

Don't know whether to push it or pump it...

..so I'm taking two set-ups.

L-R: Cut down mountainboard deck with dropped through and lowered Tracker 184's, 97mm Abec11 Flywheels. Subsonic Pulse v 2.0 with my modded Randal 150 up front and Tracker RT-S on rear, 75mm Orangatangs all round.
