Day 1 Reports and Results

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado. - Spectators from across the nation gathered at the Seven-Eleven Velodrome to watch the kickoff of the 2004 USA Roller Sports (USARS) Outdoor National Banked Track Inline Speed Skating Championships. Speed skaters competed in 300m time trials and 1000m sprints.

Inline speed skaters raced against the clock to beat their best time in the 300m time trials and secure their spot on the 2004 World Team USA. Junior World Class Ladiesí Brittany Bowe (Ocala, Florida) belted out a national record winning time of 28.74 seconds, which secured her placement on the 2004 Junior World Team. Bowe garnered another win in the 1000m sprint race with 1:46.071. Sebastian Cano (Miami, Florida) would prove the same feat in the Junior World Class Menís division, with a 300m time of 27.261.

Pan American and World Class Ladiesí Julie Glass (Olympia, Washington) rolled out to be a top contender with a gold medal time of 28.774. Glass also took the first place spot in the 1000m with a time of 1:45.437. William Bowen (Harrisonburg, Va.) took the gold, with a Junior World Class Menís 300m time of 26.993. Darren Kauffman (Waynesboro, Penn.) dominated in the 1000m sprint with a gold medal time of 1:39.582 in the Junior World Class Menís division.

Pan American and 2003 Junior World Champion, Joey Mantia (Ocala, Florida), contended his first year in the Senior World Class Menís Division and rolled out his first Senior gold medal in the 1000m with a time of 1:54.170.

"It was step one in the big journey and a sigh of relief," said Mantia. "I could feel someone behind me in the race, and I had a feeling that they were going to drop low. Josh Wood dropped low on the bank and flew by me. I hit him on the other side and came back for the win."

The banked track championships will continue through Saturday, May 29, at the Seven-Eleven Velodrome, five blocks south of the Olympic Training Center in Memorial Park. Rain date for track events is scheduled for Sunday, May 30. The road competition will be held Monday, May 31 through Tuesday, June 1 at Pikes Peak International Raceway, located at 16650 Midway Ranch Road in Fountain, Colo. Rain date for road events is scheduled for Wednesday, June 2.

The National Championships will display the fastest inline speed skaters in the nation as they compete for one of 16 spots on the 2004 Federation Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS) USA Senior World Team and eight spots on the USA Junior World Team. Team USA will compete at the FIRS Junior and Senior World Inline Road and Track Speed Skating Championships from August 28 through September 11, 2004, in LíAquila, Sulmona and Pescara Italy.
