Overall Results: This weekend of distance skateboarding was all about getting out to push ones limits and sharing the ride worldwide.

Many riders joined the "100-mile club" as a result.

And the events set a number of Firsts:

1. Laura Hatwell - First FEMALE 100+ mile Ultraskater!

2. Calum Warren-Piper - YOUNGEST 100+ mile Ultraskater (14 years old!)

3. First Ultraskate held simultaneously in 3 separate continents!

Also, the UK group overcame a bit of adversity when their course was shut down by security a mere four hours into the event. They reconvened at the "legal" hour of 8 a.m. for a 10-hour version of the Ultraskate.

The New Zealand crew also made a last-minute shift in plans, opting for a 15km waterfront course that didn't have troublesome intersection issues of the first location.

The Seattle crew decided to pull out at 1 a.m., 16.5 hours into the ride, due to rain / wet conditions.

Overall, Ultraskate V was a huge success and will be repeated some time in early summer 2009!
