For a small group class with a current Olympic speed skater? I don't think that's an outrageous price at all.

That's less than most people would spend to travel to a meet that's not near-by (remember, many meets are crazy early in the morning, like 5am, so it's generally difficult to drive more than an hour or 2 to a meet, so factor in hotel costs.) Plenty people pay more than that for a set of wheels.

It's all relative plus you have to factor in rink costs (I'm sure they're getting a cut.)
