2017 Berlin Skating Marathon: Bart Swings strikes again!

Berlin, 23rd September 2017, The Grand Slam of Inline skating culminated today on its sixth and last leg of this year´s WORLD INLINE CUP. Berlin, saw around 5600 inline skaters and a great elite field, probably the best ever. The marathon race on the 42-kilometer loop was accompanied by an extended inline skating programme featuring several kids´ races.

Men's race

Belgian Bart Swings (Powerslide Matter Racing Team) repeats his win in the world's largest inline marathon followed by Spaniard Patxi Peula (EO Skates World Team) who wins the overall World Inline Cup ranking.

Men's race decided at Brandenburg gate 300 metres from the finish line

" This victory is so different to last year's when I had won in a mass sprint. This year I was skating together with Patxi, who was very strong for about 27 kilometres, but I could leave him behind on the last couple of hundreds of meters " - Bart Swings


Women's race

Surprise in the womens race as two skaters from Argentina, Maira Yaqueline Arias and Rocio Berbel Alt upset the European elite skater establishment. Katharina Rumpus won the WIC trophy after a fifth place in Berlin today.

Two skaters broke away early and arrived five minutes ahead of the third. These were the two Argentinians, the winner Maira Yaqueline Arias (MX TAKINO Team) and runner-up Rocio Berbel Alt. Sandrine Tas (Powerslide Matter World) got third.

"This is something I had not expected! To win the most prestigious inline marathon on the road feels just great!" - Maira Arias
