Every year is taking place the International
Marathon of Marrakech. This year it will also propose a
speedskating unofficial race. Every year, freestyle
skaters are invited to make
the show for this international public.
5th time, I m going to Morocco for slalom
show : the roads are great, perfect floor, the sun is nice
in January ...
but the population and police are not so used to meet skaters.
Morocain skaters have much trouble to
practise their sport and passion : it is forbidden to skate
in Marrakech. Police does stop the local skaters and take
their skate. Only tourists skaters are safe ...
Skates are very expensive for Morocain skaters : many don't
have skates, or don't have anymore skates, others are skating
on 2 wheels because they are lacking wheels, bearings,
skates ... everything but passion
