BA R T S W I N GS “SWINGS ON WINGS”

NAME:

Bart Swings BIRTHDAY: 12.02.1991 COUNTRY: Belgium In Bart´s first year with Powerslide and Matter he celebrated his best ever year at a World Championships with three gold medals. He has won the road 20.000 m elimination before, but this time he added the road relay and the marathon to his collection. However many people at hte championships commented that his 3rd place in the track 15.000 m elimination was equally as impressive because of the fact that he was involved in a crash early in the race and had to chase to get back on. After a small break, Bart will hit the ice as he continues his quest for the 2014 Olympic Games.

The man from Spain blasted out of the blocks, and 15.879 seconds later he won gold and was the first man in history to go below the 16 second mark in 200 m TT. A silver medal in the 300 m TT on track was a nice warm up to his success on road.

EWEN f E R N A NDEZ

NAME:

EWEN FERNANDEZ BIRTHDAY: 17.02.1989 COUNTRY: FRANCE Ewen by his own admission didn´t have a lot of fun on the track at the World Championships. A little bit of bad luck and a near miss cost him dearly, but he more than made up for it on the road. A super strong display early on in the 10.000 m points race saw him build a lead that nobody else could match. A nice bronze medal in the marathon finished off a great Championships for Ewen.

VI PRO CARBON 2013

We all know Bart Swings has class. Bucket loads of it, but in a relay event even superman can´t win alone, enter Ferre Spruyt and Jore van den Berghe. Both skaters race for PS on our Vi-G13 team, and both skaters provided Bart with the support he need to bring home relay gold. The road relay is all about positioning, makeing sure your last skater is in the correct position heading in the last lap. As soon as Bart started the last lap with the sniff of victory it was always going to be difficult for the rest of the field.
