Good friend and fellow speedskater Sergio Almeralla pulled out a clean sweep of last weeks Marathon Skating International Series in Quebec City. The first event in the season, it marks Sergio's debut and all around dominance in any sport where a boot is involved. Maintaining a 40km speed for the marathon, Sergio was able to beat out his competitors by 5 seconds at the line. For the 1 hour challenge, he was able to pull out 79 laps with an average speed of 37kph beating his closest competitor by 0.051 of a second. Holy crap that is close.
So congrats to him and good luck in this coming weekends races in Lake Placid. Remember Sergio...Protein, Protein, Protein!!
Sergio leading the pack.
