PostHeaderIcon Ecup 2015 aftermath

The 2015 European Cup in Mechelen has come and passed. The number of participants once again topped last year's event with skaters from 22 different countries.
We thank all the athletes (and their entourage) for turning this edition yet again into a succesful one!

The weather was quite okay, the entire program was completed, we had more than 350 participants and the atmosphere was great.
We could speak of a very nice weekend!

We may not forget that the fastest time Friday in the 300m TT was 23,749 s, faster than the official world record and our new track record.
Congratulations to Simon Albrecht (Arma Arena Geisingen GER) for this great achievement!

All results can be found here:
