A week before SYCLD.. in hospital..

Hi everyone… the day before yesterday I had to inform the people involved I would not be at SYCLD myself.. Why? Well… First, every year I say some weeks before the event ‘I’m not taking any chances with anything because I can not be injured at SYCLD” (suddenly remember how I reacted when Valentijn tried to convince me to go mini ramp skating 3 weeks ago; “NO! It’s almost SYCLD, if I break something now it will be disastrous” and him joking he will just take over) and then last Friday I went riding my horse Imperia (who got me […]

Connecting … that is SYCLD!

So I moved my office here, like I do regularly, having a drink and finishing a few little details for […]

The first registered skaters already lined up to check in as early as 11:30 am and up to the beginning of the first category of the contest, the line hardly ever ceased to exist. While the more than 100 sponsored and non-sponsored riders pleased […]
