It is always the battle between the different natural ice rinks who can organise the first marathon on natural ice. This year it was Haaksbergen that won this race by being the first track to offer 3cm of pitch black ice combined with a good weather forecast for the evening. The woman started in the snow but finished under good conditions.

Experimenting some more with remotes during the ice speedskating season. Reach off the Pocketwizrads PlusIII's is incredible long with no misfires when mounted on a metal bridge over the ice, under a metal roof, over 100 meters away. Impressive!
