After announcing the new Top Class Race in Barranquilla, Colombia, last Friday, the organisers of the WORLD INLINE CUP (WIC) are very happy to also welcome the Madeira Roller Marathon to the strongest international inline marathon series.
The Class 1 race will be held on the 20th of September in the city of Funchal, the capital of Portugal's Madeira archipelago. The marathon which is well established for several years is very popular with international top athletes. Elite skaters like Diogo Marreiros (POR), Patxi Peula (ESP), Felix Rijhnen (GER), Katharina Rumpus (GER) or Aura Quintana (COL) and many others enjoy the challenging track in the beautiful surroundings year after year.
“The Madeira Roller Marathon is a win for the World’s leading inline marathon series. After the inclusion last week of a promising new Top Class race in Barranquilla, Colombia, with Funchal, Madeira, we can now add an already established marathon in the WORLD INLINE CUP. We are happy that together with the organisers we could find a date for the race in September, one week before the WIC final in Berlin”, said Petr Stastny, President of the WORLD INLINE CUP:
