- 2 Norwegien vert kings will enter the seesion
- American vert legend from the 70's want to come but no reasonable priced tickets found yet.
1. In the evenings the day before competitions people will work to get start ramps courses and the likes ready. So people will be at the race site in the evenings. Best start is to get yourself to the event office, take a drink, register for the race and hang out at the pool.
2. It's not easy to get to the race site if you don't know how. But take a look at the maps at the event home page and you will find out. Go to the underground station "Odenplan" and from there you will have to go by foot/skate.
3. The event office is only 3 stations south of the central station. Take the green line (Going towards Hagsätra, Farsta Strand or Skarpnäck) and get off at "Medborgarplatsen". Here is the Stockholm underground map
4. The pool is just around the corner in the park beside the Hotel Malmen. So is the event office. Have a look at the new race info topic at the euro2005 home page. Link above.
5. You could probably rent scooters somewhere but since you are right in the center of Stockholm and only one or two stations away from Old Town you will be better off without them.
6. Yes, American and English people have very funny electric contacts so you need to get an adapter to our "normal peoples" electric contacts.
7. Pro-tight is tighter than a mans... well how should I know? According to Marcus and Klang who seems to be very well informed on this subject it's tighter than Paris.
Am-tight is not extreamly tight but have some large offsets so that it feels quite tight.
8. Overall result who will decide the prize money will only count the Main slalom events GS, Straight and Tight Special. And yes, I forgot. For the cyber we have a dress code. Light colored evening dress. Preferably pink.
9. The cyber is only open to the pros. If you are not man enough for it or have cyber times over 11 seconds you might want to jump it over. Let us know as quickly as possible so we can update the start list. We will be short on time the whole weekend.
10. Paris had probably the toughest level of pro slalom skateboarders there have ever been. It does look like Stockholm will be tougher. See here
. We have 37! pros registered. If you make top 16 you should go home smiling. Experience from Paris says a cone hit could be as much as 5-6 placements in the end. So the solution is: full speed, no cones.
