With the first official training on Tuesday began the hot phase of the Junior European Championships 2013, in the Geisingen arena.
The 16 participating nations worked hard to prepare themselves for the competitions. Together with Pascal Briand (FRA), Massimiliano Presti (ITA) and Kalon Dobbin (NZL / SUI), other "old-celebrities" of the inline scene are active as trainers and supervisors to share their experience with the speed skating athletes.
On Thursday, after the opening ceremony, began more than 160 competitions on the Geisingen arena. The focus is on Saturday for the short and long-distance competitions. Worth stopping by then!
