An impressive list of skaters registered again this year and this should give us have an idea on who could perform well at the World championships and European championships later this season.

The big names
In the men’s competition we will have the chance to see a lot of senior world champions such as Bart Swings, Simon Albrecht, Johan Guzman, Luca Silva, Peter Michael, Patxi Peula and Felix Rijhnen. Some young skaters like Valentin Thiebault and Giovanni Trebouta who performed well at the Trophée des 3 pistes and the Lagos European cup could also show some great things. Italian star Daniel Niero will race in his first competition of the season and you should definitely keep an eye on him. It will be a tight competition between teams like Powerslide, Bont and Arma in the longer distances. It will also be interesting to see Peter Michael and Livio Wenger perform under their new colours of Arma Arena Geisingen.

In the women's competition, team Powerslide will have a solid squad with Sandrine Tas, Laethisia Schimek, Chloé Geoffroy and Giorgia Bromida. Aura Quintana, Mareike Thum and Josie Hoffman are some skaters who could challenge them. The overall classification will be tight but Sandrine Tas will be hard to beat as she dominated the Lagos European cup two weeks ago and will have a good team to help her this weekend.
