Default Video from Eastern Seaboard Series #1 Pro Men

The first stage of the Eastern Seaboard Series took place this past Saturday, with HOT temperatures and high humidity. We were glad to see some other skateloggers there, gopherfan, Intrepid, excelsk8 and we think that Andrey, BWI-Sheldon's protege, was also there.

Someone posted a link to the Pro Men's race (Pro Senior on down in age to Pro Freshmen) on youtube. The Pro Master/Veteran race had been run before this race and some of the Pro Master/Veteran men also skated this race. The video does highlight what a great course we are fortunate to have for the series, and it allows spectators to actually see some racing. The part of the course into the woods is only about a 1/4 mile of the mile loop. These guys make the hill look easy.

Congrats to everyone who skated.

Nice skating, Fran.
Gotta wonder what was up with the flier on those early laps. I thought you prefered skating the pack.
Looks like a nice little course.

What wheels were most people using? May try to get up there for a race.
Just wondering about the surface and wheels durometers, etc.

The predominant wheels this year at ESS seem to be the new MPC Road War Turbos and Matter G-13s. Both these wheels can be seen in the video, the MPCs are the pinkish wheels and the Matters are the white with the green hub. The track surface is a very smooth asphalt. Not sure what the predominant choice of durometer was and you can't tell from the video since all three wheel hardnesses of the MPC wheels are the same color and both hardnesses of the Matters have a green hub. I know most of the people on our team who wore the new MPCs were on the x-firm. I did see a few people on the older Road Wars too.

Hope you are able to make it up for a race! If you do, please say hello. And not sure what part of Jersey you'd be coming from, there are a few people coming up from the South Jersey area who skate the series you could also get some direct feedback on the course and wheels. We live in central Jersey. And Francisco's team is from North Jersey/the City.
