With the World Roller Games approaching, many teams had their national championships or a training camp last weekend. Because of that, the Gera European cup was mostly composed of German skaters, but some from Denmark, Czech Republic and Colombia were also present.

An all German group in the ladies' competition
The ladies’ competition was all German and composed of almost only RSV Gera skaters. Angelina Otto stood out winning the 1000m and finished 2nd in both the points and elimination races. She also finished 4th on 300m. Josie Hofmann and Sabine Berg also had a good weekend on their home track. Hofmann won the 300m and the elimination race while Berg finished second on 300m and on 1000m.

Acosta and Mende on top in the men’s competition
The men’s competition saw Colombian Camilo Acosta representing team Arena Geisingen won both the 300m and the 1000m. He is the only skater who won two distances during the weekend in the senior category. German Jan Martin Mende from Powerslide had a good competition winning the elimination race, finishing 2nd on 1000m and 3rd on 300m. Danish Niclas Mastrup won the points race and collected a 2nd place and two 5th places.
