    Thanks for taking the time put a piece out there on inline. My comment is directed at the statement, “Like skateboarding, inline skating is a form of extreme sports…” While this is generally true of aggressive and downhill skating, inline “speed” skating can be easily separated from the extreme as either an anaerobic (indoor) or endurance (outdoor marathon, ultra distance) sport both requiring each energy system at different levels. Athletes that compete in events such as the picture you have used are the elite of elite! Consider that one can hardly watch the ice competitions in Vancouver, long or short track, without a commentator saying, “Former inline world champion so and so (Chad Hedrick, their coach Derek Parra, Aplo Ohno, Alexis Contin, etc.). Speaking of Chad Hedrick, he still holds the record in North America’s largest inline marathon, The North Shore in Duluth, MN. finishing the 26.2 mile race in just over 57 minutes in 1998 (yes that is a sustained effort at over 26 MPH for the entire duration). That being said, the inline community does work towards the same goal, growth in all areas of the sport and we all need each other. Aggressive skaters are very talented athletes and the downhillers are just crazy (but yes talented as well)! Inline speed skaters are a different “market” inside an “industry” that competes for different reasons requiring athletic skills similar to the elite cyclist.

    I really enjoy rollerblading ever since I modified my E300 razor electric scooter. It used to be a lot of work skating up hills and going long distances. Now it is fun to be pushed around by my modified E300. It’s a pretty good workout at 15 mph. See Youtube video:

    Inline skates are an evolution of roller skates, which resulted in the wheels shifting into a single line formation of 3-5 wheels on each boot.
