Mixed relays

Championnat d'Europe Roller course - 4ème journée

After a few trials at the Europa Cup of Bayreuth (Germany), the European Race Committee (Comité Européen Course, CEC) has decided to introduce a mixed relay demonstration at the European Championships in Almere (Netherlands).

Junior relay

Since Germany has won the both men and women relays in the junior category, it was hard to imagine that the mixed relay would escape the German skaters. So it's no surprise if Germany won the race in front of Spain and Italy.
