Team For Ride update...


Fabien competing in the French championship in Darnetal earlier this month, he also sent us this photo of him unpacking the new toys we sent... skate bearings & t-shirts for the team!

We're delighted to bring you the latest news from Team For Ride, our slightly madcap French Gravity Sports champions - see our original post http://smbbearings.blogspot.com/2010/04/street-luge-team-for-ride.html for full details of their combined lunacy!

Fabien writes that the team will have at least one member competing in World Championship events in France, Italy, Austria, Germany & the Czech Republic all over the summer.. "So, just to keep you informed of what we are going to do this summer the competition calendar has been set.  Almost all of us struggle to find money (me included) to participate to all the events, so we had to make some choices...

For Thibaut it's his carreer, he's back in school, and it's impossible for him to have more vacations..."

"For Quentin it's his work as much as the money...

For Marie and Philippe, they are just separated (but everything's doing good thay are still really good friends, no trouble in the team "pfiouuu") so they had to move and that create many non scheduled expenses... and also Philippe is still on trial period at his work...

And me, I'm the lucky guy! plenty of vacation, except I'll miss Almabtrieb in Austria, cause of my sister's wedding, and I'll miss Chuyer Gold Trophy cause of my best friend's wedding. Which certainly cost me the French podium... (can't they get married in winter? lol)". 

I am sure that your sister will do her best to be more considerate in future Fabien & try to schedule any other big occasions around your competitions :0)



Marie takes a podium place at Darnetal...

Thanks for the news Team For Ride, we'll look forward to hearing all about your events as the summer progresses.
