Stockholm Region Inline 2003
 

Stockholm Regin Inline, 24 August 2003, 134 km

Here are some photos from the competition Stockholm Region Inline. Only 27 skaters dared to start for the full distance; 134 km. We started in Västerås, went over Enköping and the finish was in Stockholm.

Ca 300 skaters chose the shorter distance (described as recreational) Enköping - Stockholm, 97 km.

Thanks to IS Göta, Ivar Mortensen, Bertil Stolt and Jonas Schön for allowing me to use their photos.
