As MC said in his post, if you are into speed skating, you have to do Montreal at least once.
Thanks, I smiled a lot too, but I have to give credit to Brian for the smile in that particular picture. And yes, you have to do the race at least once. And then, once you've done it, you will vow to do it again. I wish it wasn't a whole year before the race came around again.

Happy Trails,
