Hi Skaters,
In what I believe is a move for the better, there has been a change in the World Inline Cup management, Hinnerk Has the experience dealing with top sporting events & hopefully if tough questions are asked, there is not a reply that I wont reply to you any more on this subject. The release has come through today.

World Inline Cup With New Management

Hinnerk FemerlingZurich, 1 April 2011: Hinnerk Femerling is the new Chief Executive for the Official FIRS Roller Marathon Tour. The 44-year-old German is following IGUANA’s former Managing Director who has asked to be released from his duties to concentrate on his own business activities. Femerling will take-over the responsibility for the World Inline Cup (WIC) with immediate effect. He ran the Beach Volleyball business for Global Sports Group since 2002 and has been involved in the preparation of the 2011 WIC since the beginning of the year.

“We are more than happy that we can realize this internal solution to fill the gap Markus Ott is leaving behind,” says WIC President Heinz Schurtenberger. “Hinnerk’s enormous expertise to organize and market international sports events will help us to grow the World Inline Cup on a global scale.” “I am very much looking forward to take on this new challenge,” Femerling adds. “Inline Skating has great potential and the WIC is the perfect platform to promote the sport and its heros.”

The first event for Femerling is the 20’000 USD Top Class race in Valencia on 17 April. The race in Spain’s third-biggest city is taking place on the Formula One course of the European Grand Prix in the famous America’s Cup harbor. More than 5’000 skaters are expected to enjoy the spectacular scenery in Catalonia.
