Why you ask?
Jessica and I (Birgit) were after Squiggy asked by many if we would organize more races - we heard ya! and thanks!! - this will be our gift to the outdoor skaters that asked for more races in Florida, hope y'all like the concept.
We hope to make outdoor skaters (those who primarily will participate in road races like Squiggy Classic Inline) see that the outdoor races/skating offered at "indoor meets" are lots of fun.
And vice-versa we hope to convince the indoor skaters that out door road skating is well yes is lots of fun.
