Default Grand Forks -- Rollin' on the River

Any Skateloggers heading up to Grand Forks this weekend? This is the first time I've been able to go. Brand new course too.

Alas, too much other travel this summer to make it to this one. I hear it's a great race though, so best of luck to you.

Ditto. If I could day-trip it, though, I would try to make it.

I was expecting to but the new job meant I would not have the vacation balance to do Grand Forks, Duluth, and A2A. Something had to give so no Rolling on the River for me.

Maybe next year. It sound like an interesting race. Probably not well tuned to my strengths but fun.

Here's my video from Grand Forks. Sadly, my memory card filled up at about the 10 mile marker. Could've sworn I deleted everything off the night before.

Highlights include the "surprise" start about 5 seconds after the national anthem ended, a semi truck barreling towards us on the "closed" course, and one of the Twincam guys jokingly telling me to take everyone out so he could win the sprint

Overall it was a great race. I would definitely recommend making the trip up next year if you can!
