European championship 2011: 500 m in Heerde (NED)

European championship 2011: 500 m in Heerde (NED)

Second day of competition on the track of Heerde (The Netherlands). The climate warms gently. We feel that the summer will (finally) come. We leave behind us a chilly month of July! The races have started slowly this morning in the 500 series for Juniors and Seniors. The track is much more slippery than last night, probably due to the humid atmosphere...

Sunday morning: 500 m heats

Les 500 m sur piste au championnat d'Europe de vitesse 2011 - seniorsAll French male skaters have qualified for the next round in Juniors and seniors categories. The two brothers Mulder (Netherlands) will probably be the most serious opponents for all other nations. In the women categories, the Germans, Italians and Dutch are the strongest nations.
Girls are exempt from the quarter-finals. It's not for boys. The Dutch twins Ronald and Michel Mulder undoubtedly are  the most serious rival of the two French Nicolas Pelloquin and Elton De Souza .
In the finals of the junior category, the Belgian Jore van den Berghe (44.450) beat Benjamin Pierre Jean (France - 44.504) and Lars Scheenstra (Netherlands - 44.562). Benjamin Pierre-Jean was alone in the final against an excellent Jore van den Berghe: The Belgian went ahead and arrived ...ahead! Benjamin, skating  in his wheel, has tried to surprise him, but it seemed impossible. The silver medal was probably the best metal possible for the Frenchman.

However, the French Nicolas Pelloquin probably already saw the gold at the end of the final Senior. And not just him! In fact, the two French skaters are present in the final, the other being Elton De Souza. Pelloquin hand to De Souza. But it has been overwhelmed by the imposing Ronald Mulder (Netherlands). Ioseb Fernandez (Spain) took the opening and passed  the Frenchman as well. Difficult to gain speed then ... Elton De Souza had to settle for the fourth place, the worst.  Nicolas Pelloquin was racing ahead, skating at the top of the track.
In the last turn, the Vendee, however took a quick glance behind him, feeling the breath of Ronald Mulder in his back. Then, he released his most powerful sprint to cross the line. Insufficient for a few thousandths: Mulder, supported bu his insatiable public, passed to his right. Again, Pelloquin has really done nothing wrong: beat Mulder and all his supporters, that's a lot at once!

In the women final, the German Laethisia Schimek (47.377) beat Giulia Bongiorno (Italy - 47.516). Katharina Rumpus (Germany - 48.064) is third...
