Scooter’s Speed Club travels to Montreal, Jade Pauley dominates, Jesus Alvarado skates his first ever competition

Almost a dozen skaters from the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club traveled to Montreal to compete in the VRL Cup #2 held at the Récréathque in Laval.

The competition featured a variety of age and ability groups for skaters. The event was run on the traditional USARS 100-meter 4-cone (‘peanut) track. The Scooter’s club uses the NIRA style track configuration.

Jade Pauley showed excellent form, fending off strong skaters from Montreal & France and winning all three distances in the junior & senior men’s competition.
