Tunnelloppet (The Tunnel Race), Stockholm 2004
Premiere skating in the tunnel 31 Mars 2004, seven months before the race
Copied from Tunnelloppet's homepage before the race:
"The South Link [in Stockholm] is Sweden’s largest road tunnel project [...].
Around 60 000 vehicles will be able to pass through the tunnels every 24 hours."
In October, one week before the tunnels were opened for traffic, there was a race
for inline skaters and runners in the tunnels.
In Mars, seven months before the race, a TV sports channel filmed in the
tunnels for a news segment about the upcoming Tunnel Race. Jonas Olofsson and
Ulf Haase represented inline skaters during the filming.
