What amazing fans. The NBC television network in the USA did a video feature on the Dutch and speed skating, talking not only about elite level competitions, but also about the Elfstedentocht and Flevonice. But no mention of Kleintje Pils, whom you are hearing oompah-pahing in the background at the Richmond Oval during the Olympics.

This blog weighs in on topics such as long-distance skating, the Illinois canals, cycling, and a variety of related (and occasionally not-so-related) topics. I'd like to correspond with others interested in skating the Hennepin and I&M canals.
