Ryosuke Tsuchiya: huge, huge fan of road cycling, apparently he knows exactly what's going on in all the European races. Also, he collects road racing bikes :d 

Can’t imagine that’s a cheap hobby :yikes:

At least they're all no Heather Bergsma.

 

Nah, she has nice extension. Michael and Loubineaud are like watching botched piaffes. No thanks. :p

Ice looks insanely fast btw, Loubineaud already went sub-13, Beckert and Tsuchiya are way faster for now. The WR is under threat.

I find it hard to judge Bergsma's actual technique because there's always 17 meters of limbs flying around when she skates.

He trains with Bart Swings though (the inline skating part of the year) :p 

 

Or Swings trains with French coaches as well, I don't know.

 

no idea, however Belgium and France are both really good in roller speedskating...

 

France used to have Italian coaches...but I don't think it's the case anymore...

Is it that big of a problem?

Wow. Beckert is now the 6th fastest skater in history and the first ever non-Dutch born to go under 12:50 :bowdown: 

 

12:30 is going down :p

Beckert once again looked as though he had much in reserve when he crossed the line.
