Rollerskiing in Africa? It could seem a joke, but what once appeared as a mere journalistic scoop will become a reality starting from September 2003.
The sprint race, both for men and ladies, will take place on the 5th of September by night in fantastic scenery along the main street of Naama Bay. The main street is visited every night by thousands of tourists going to the myriad of small characteristic shops. After the race there will be the opportunity to spend an exciting night in one of the many nightclubs of the typically Egyptian town, to celebrate the victory or to forget about the defeat.
The knockout competition will take place inside the village Coral Bay, a real pearl of hospitality, immersed in a rich vegetation and full of flowers, with beautiful colours and intense fragrances. The village has a typically Moresque architecture and offers an impressive view on the sea. The race will take place by night along a short track, right at the entrance of the village.
The track is rather flat but not so easy, and it will certainly offer a great show. The track is completely asphalted and the organising committee will provide the services necessary for this kind of sporting event.
