Polar Skating Attire, Part II - A pair of warm socks with the toes cut out makes for excellent arm warmers, as New Zealand's Shane Dobbin demonstrates before the start of the race. (Note: This cheerful fellow was smiling while most of the race participants wore flash-frozen grimaces.) Dobbin, one of three Sportvital-Rollerblade teammembers at the Northshore, is one of the top skaters in the World Inline Cup, but after his teammate, Diego Rosero, took off on his winning breakaway, he was content to hang with the chase pack, eventually finishing sixth with a time of 1 hour, 15 minutes and 22 seconds.
