Hey guys, Good luck with organizing the event, sorry for being such a wanker and not helping you much, if any. I am certainly taking part in it, and will probably bring a beginner with me, so the word is spreading! =) Since plenty of folks are coming to the event - do you think it is possible to ask...

Hey Flavio,

How about a piece of a slalom in Diemerpark on Thursday? Today I am at Vondelpark again but later - I am all yours ) Or, if you insist, I could join you at Diemer today.

Keep on riding!

Slalom in Vondelpark

FYI, whenever there's a dry evening - I practice flat in Vondelpark, along with occasional street skaters. So if somebody feels like filling an evening with a bit of pumping activity - be free to join me. It's not as cool as Floriade or Diemerpark of course, but cool anyways. Good riding everyone! P...

Slalom today?

Hey everybody, Is anybody slaloming in the evening today? Something around +19-00? The weather looks promising so far. Unless it is snowing in a few hours - it could be a nice evening. Hey, Flavio, I tried to call you but it looks like the number I got redirects me to some answering machine. Is that...

Hey, Flavio I saw your post yesterday but had a very intense evening, including Jessica Alba taking a shower in "Pathe" theater, so I couldn't reply to you straight away, sorry. It would be great to skate together. I have posted my phone number already - so if an evening is dry and you feel like mee...

Thanks for the reply, Jani

Paris is just a couple of hours from Amsterdam and I was planning to meat up with some folks from Moscow there anyways.

Yes I am interested ) What is the price (average)?

Thanks,

2008 Vondelpark Season opening (finally!)

Yesterday evening turned out to be dry so I decided to try out some Vondelpark lanes and open this season at last (it's so rainy, jeesh!). No pics, so you just have to believe it. Vondelpark is a nice place, 95% flat, not surprisingly though. Next month I am moving to live 1 block away from that are...

What about skating in Ikea underground parking or elsewhere? I don't have any hope left for a dry weather any time soon. Does somebody plan to do it?

Hi Cyril,

Thanks for sending me a message. I've been bicycling around local parks on Sunday. There are some tempting lanes worth trying, though flat. All that's needed - is a day with no rain. Hopefully there is something in April.

Regards,
Vlad

some evening practice?

Hi everybody, If anybody feels like practicing a bit in the evening before the weekend - just drop me a line. My feet are itching to do some practice already, and it looks like there's no good asphalt in Amsterdam (is there?). I finish at 18-00, so we've got a couple of hours at least, I think. Vlad

What about the Ikea Garage? I don't mind some french slalom or pumping flat, really =)

Hey Silvio, Thanks for your reply.

New to Amsterdam

Hey, folks I have just arrived in Amsterdam a week ago. I've been previously riding with Vlad Popov in Moscow, PhD. I am really looking forward to slalom with the local community. However "Floriade" or "Harlem Ikea" doesn't speak much to me. Could somebody tell the exact address of these places or h...
