Default Route 66 Inline Challenge

I know the event has already come and gone but I thought I would post the link to the results here anyway. Not everyone is on Facebook.

I'm impressed that Gateway is able to put on such a fully featured event (street closures, BBQ, timing chips?) with so few participants.

I'd like to participate sometime if only the numbers could come up enough to make the trip from California worthwhile. I grew up in Missouri and, even though I never skated there, I would like to race my home state just once.

The event is run on a trail in a park. I don't think there are any road closures required but yet, Gateway does an excellent job with the event.

The map image on Facebook shows a loop of Blakey Road. I assumed that was the course. Maybe not.

You could be correct.

Here's a video of the race that kufman posted a couple years ago.

If you watch the vid in one window while looking at the map in another window, it will clear up any questions you might have about what roads the course is on.
