I did too!

I was in Stockholm this weekend and I checked out the race site (without the skate!). The giant slalom will be awesome in a cool setting. It won't be easy for the audience to watch, and there may not be that many, but it's a really cool place to skate.

Starts with a relatively large (read normal road) that turns slightly right, then narrows, flattens out, turns towards the left, then is flat for a few meters over a bridge (over the train), then a very sharp left turn on a slightly angled street. After this cool curve it's almost straight and not so steep down to the bottom.

Part of the challenge is not seeing the whole course, not even one third from the top and then getting across the bridge and into the left hand turn. Don't go too fast or you'll end up falling over the edge...

See you there, or rather in Riga one week prior!!

How's the public traffic from the AP to Stockholm City like?

Well guy's, it's now only two weeks remaining to sign up and spend your
green. We have a pretty full schedule this weekend so we can not have
registration on site. The good thing is, you can skate insted of waiting
in line to register. You will also know whom you will qualify with before
you even get to Sweden.

Arlanda -> City Three choices. Bus, train, taxi. The buses leave every 10 minutes or so, just outside the terminal, cost about 15-20€ round trip, gets you to town in 30-35 minutes. Train is a little more than twice as expensive and gets you into town in 20-25 minutes. Taxi is about 50-55 euros one way.

I always go for the bus since it's not a big difference in time from the train, and you get to choose from a variety of stops (one being right at the slalom spot). The train gets you to the city terminal only. Also good to know about the bus is that it's not like in Paris where traffic can make it 2 hours instead of 40 minutes...

Peter-

I will be in Copenhagen in July and August (for design school) and would like to come up to your event. I may be travelling with my design program during the time of your race but if not I will be able to come to Stockholm. Since I won't know for sure whether I can come, signing up to race doesn't sound like a good idea unless I can get my money back.

Where in Stockholm will the races be and where is a cheap place to stay (for a traveling student?)

Thanks,

Henry Julier

Henry,

Have a look at the event homepage. There you will find everything you need. If you pay and can't come you will of course be refunded. But the fun will be lost forever. ;-)

Hans,

Thanks for the info. I just found out I'll be staying in Stockholm the weekend of the race with all my design classmates as part of a larger tour of Scandinavia, at the Zinkensdamm Hostel... at Zinkens Väg 20, S 118 25 Stockholm. I don't know if thats close to the race site. It's fair to say I'll have some scheduled activities so racing seems out of the question but I will pop over if I can and support team USA.

Cheers,

Henry

Medborgarplatsen at night
Odenplan during the day.

Nice info, Grüningen is good, Köln is semigood on one side, shit on the other, Morro is ok.....very helpful info. What the hell 82/86 A Avalons work everywhere............

I'd say it's not really as good as Grüningen, but not as bad as Köln, and Morro wise it's like main street (not the street going towards the ocean where the surface sucks)...

Since the GS is pretty long there are some cracks and places where the asphalt is not excellent, but I normally use 92/88a Grippins at the spot, or if its colder 88/84a. Anyways just like you said 86/82a avalons will work fine!

Stockholm Cyber surface

Hi Peter & Marcus,

Any idea what the surface will be like for the cyberslalom? Will it be in the same general location as the hill shown?

thanks,

Marcus,

If things go as I hope they will, there will be no racing at all in Morro Bay this year. We're trying to move all the racing to San Luis Obispo which is 12 miles rom Morro Bay.

Jack,

I wish I could be there! Morro was great fun, Main street got great surface and the view at the hybrid was excellent, Antibes like...

Plan is that my Josephine and I will become parents at the start of september so European Championships will probably be the last competition for me this season... But next year!

Michael,

The Cyber will not be at the same location as the other slalom events, but close to the riders hotel, the skate pool and other events. Though I'm not 100% sure which one of 2 alternatives it will be at. Reason: one is freshpaved and might be fast, but is still untested, the other has ok asphalt but has been used before. Both are just meters away from the water so don't lose your board...

Hello everybody,
Hope you all are in the shape of your life. Only 18 days till SWC2005. This Friday is the last day for registration and payment. On Saturday we will sit down and set the schedule for the weekend, there is way too much happening this weekend to allow late entrees. Those who have not yet registred or paid there fee, and really want to race, I advice you to put your plans into action.

Cheers
Peter

Peter,

I have a few questions:

1. We will fly into Skavsta
which is the best way to get into Stockholm?

2.Our flight arrives 11.30 h on friday, there was no way to leave on Thursday. Is it possible to start late on Friday? I assume many people have to work or anything. I think I told you before, but I just wanted to mention it here as I think some others will have the same "problem"

3. I read there will be an international and a European counting in the results. How will this be done?

Hey Dragen,

i want to reserve one European Title in the Am class.

As i know you are a good guy and good guy's give good prices !! not only good prices but also the best prices we ever had in slalom.

i think it must be the whole collection of WESC ! My size is medium and i love the WE/adidas shoos !

Aren't they for sale ? on the website they write "not 4 sale" the nicest shoos i ever seen !!

Looking forward to go shooping in the Klangstertown !!

Well, you will like the prizes, but for WE/Adidas shoes, well there was only 2.000 pairs made world wide, only 185 pairs was for the Swedish market, I think they are long gone.

I don´t think you will have time for shoping during the weekend nut if you arrive early.
At night you can get your Cabanoz played.

Slobodan,

i come on Thusday and leave on Monday. 6 day's is enough to play with my cabanoz in the night and shopping during the day !

i had a hangover yesterday after a party session from 7pm until i didn't know anything. I think it was arround 3.30 i left the club before they closed. That's not normal for me. I think i have to practice a bit more before Stockholm...

Perhaps i didn't have to drink, because the girls are nicer there than here in Schweiz...

Shooting in Stockholm

Post by Maria Carrasco » Mon Jul 04, 2005 8:43 pm

I have a new board/helmet cam I'm bringing to Sweden which is awesome for POV shots and I'm looking for someone to shoot with me using that cam. I'm thinking a non-racer who can skate the hills of course. Anyone out there available and interested? Please contact me via e-mail and we can talk about a plan. Thanks!!

Claude,

We have had discussions of you coming since the very beginning so if you just throw in your entry fee right away it's no problem. The startinglists and day schedules are about to get finalized and will be published as soon as possible.


Vincent, (and others)

There is only one room left at Malmen what I understood from Mr Klang.

Making it Work

Post by Claude Regnier » Tue Jul 05, 2005 4:30 pm

Okay my flight to Manchester is booked I arrive on the 12th Am. I will work on the to from (Stockholm) after the morning Coaching part of camp is done.

I'll also register for the comp as soon as I make room on the credit card for the entry fee. Hopefully this afternoon, I'll have time.

Okay I can't register (it's officially closed) but I guess is doesn't matter because you have me listed in the bracketing.

My problem will be getting back to Manchester on time to catch my flight on the 18th.

C-Ya'll soon, EH!

Just checking, how much is a beer in Sweden?

How much is bite to eat?

The alcoholics and overweight slalomers are thinking about how much cash to bring.....

There is a very cheap bar just across the street, just in front of the Event Office (completly accidental I promise). There you can spend your beer money.

OK lets settle this once and for all.
Swedens tax on alcohol has been reduced since the 80's.

Beer in a Bar 19-45 SEK
In a Club 39-60 SEK
O-Baren (card holders) 35 SEK
In the store 9-16 SEK

€=9,30 SEK

SOOOOOOOO it's much like the rest of Europe.

At the Race there will be beer for 25 sek I believe.

Couple quick questions:

1) Is this pool really accross the street from our hotel, and is it a park pool? Is it sweet? ]
Please describe or post pic.

2) Can we rent a motorcycle or scooter for the week? Please check into it?

3) Do we need to buy electric adaptor for our IPOD and digital camera?

4) How tight is the tight? Tighter than Paris? If not, I am just bringing the PP 36".

5) Is there an overall weekend winner, and if so, does the cybergay count towards it?

Robin and I are very excited and are REALLY looking forward the whole week.
There are going to be some crushed egos. This ain't San Diego. Luca, Marus, Hart, Raymondo, Mitchell, Barker, Chicken, Dong, Richie, Hackett. We will all be lucky to make the top 8, let along top 4 or podium.

I like the sound of the 30 second GS.

Thanks for putting this thing together Klang. Looking forward to the trip like you wouldnt believe.

Some answers:
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.

Is the Pool a Pool or park pool?

Any Laundry places around?

Do we have a pool at the hotel?

Start Ramps for GS or Push start?

How many cones in the GS?

Can we buy an electric adaptor there, or should we look here?

All these questions Kenny...

The pool(s)

Laundry places: We don't really have those laundry places like you see so very often in USA. Here everybody manages their laundry at home. Your home will be the hotel so they can probably help you out with that.

Hotel pool?: See their home page

Start ramp for GS (Single lane). About 50 cones.

Buy electric adaptor at the airport.

Prize money: I would say for you Kenny, 400-500 euro. :-)

I was talking about the SKATEBOARD POOL were the Saturday night party/jam is. Is it as a park or backyard pool. Everyone says to take a pool board - for what ? Throw me a bone.

thanks for the adaptor info.

Now lets see of pic of the pool or park. Or description.
