Fratelli Team Mechelen invites you and your team to our International Speedskating Event 2014 on the banked race track in Mechelen (Belgium).
Races will be held on Friday the 9th of May (from 18:00), Saturday the 10th of May (from 9:00) and Sunday the 11th of May (from 9:00). Attached you will find the program of these races.

 

Why racing in Mechelen?

The banked track is really fast! Three national records were broken in 2012, including two Belgian records by Bart Swings and Nele Armee. In 2013, over 300 skaters saw fascinating races between the European top against top racers from Columbia and Chili. This resulted in an - unofficial - world record for Andres Munoz (COL) on the 500 meter. Maarten Swings improved the Belgian 5.000 meter record and Oliver Jones wiped Kalon Dobbin off the New Zealand record list also on the 500 meter!

The International Speedskating Event in Mechelen might not be the biggest speedskating event, but we sure offer nice and top qualitative races! As a founding member of the European Cup, our race participates now for the fourth time in this important European Speedskating circuit.
