Default A2A 2008 - 87 Mile Road Skate - October 8

Hi folks,

A little reminder: A2A 2008 on 5 Oct 2008.
Registration for 38,54 or 87 mile distances is $60, right now. That's less than 70 cents/mile

I'm in again for the full distance.

And so it begins...

See you there, Sean.

Along with Dev and Jessica and MomDeb, Gless, Jon B.and Renee, Birgs, Excelsk8, The General, Buzz, Ldskater, Luke and Brandi and how 'bout Intrepid and his posse? And God Help us All maybe even Tremor!!!

Whether you come to race it or just to do it and have some fun, let's all take an awesome opportunity and turn it into something special. There's a distance for everyone, don't be shy! If I didn't mention your name and I should have, I assure you it wasn't on purpose, remind me and I'll kick my own ass, TWICE, but whatever you do, chime in and say, HEY, I'll be there!

He should anticipate a thorough TP job on his house if he dares to not show.

Default A2A 2008: Last day to register before price increases

I've been working some late nights and this completely slipped up on me...

Today is the last day to register for A2A at "early bird" prices. Registration goes up tomorrow.

Also the 2007 results along with Dura Skater rankings are now in the results database.

I'll be there. I won't commit to the full 87 until later in the summer, but even if it's for the 38 or 52, I'll be there.

Just make sure you skate all the skates in Miami, then you'll get so many miles in a few days, that we soon will hear - sure, I can do it

Oh, there's no doubt in my mind I can skate 87 miles. Question is, can I do it all at once and keep above 10mph? That's the part I'm not gonna decide until I've done at least fifty miles at a decent pace once or twice.
