The Ottawa Inline Invitational #2 was held yesterday in Gatineau. Cor Beattie shared pictures of the event as well as a report of the racing action.
Not to be undone, speedster Xavier Charon dragged his parents to Ottawa as well and let me assure you this little guy can skate! Coming in 2nd in his semi final race (against adults) and 3rd in the finals was no laughing matter. The improvements are obvious. In another year, this kid is going to my main competition. Uh oh.
