Gateway Speed Team Did it Again this past weekend at the MSSL final meet of the season, at Skateworld of Branson MO -

The Best Skaters in the States of Missouri, Arkansas, and others in the midwest area. Joining the fun for the very first time, was Andrea walker, known in the derby community as "Flash", and she proved thats just what she was, winning 2nd overall for her group, and 1st overall for her division in quads, and AMAZING showing for a first meet. We are all Proud of Andrea...I mean "Flash!" - She is no longer as the derbs would say "Fresh Meat" but is now an official, speed skating rookie! Look for more from this tough young lady!

Brian Hampton and Paul Kempf also Silver Medaled in their divisions , both racing strong in their divisions, and showing that Masters and Veteran men can still get down and roll!

After Quads, Inlines Ran -  And we came to make some noise no doubt. Steve downing destroyed the field in the 500 , winning by over 1/2 a lap, it was impressive to watch no doubt, Paul Kempf would medal in Veteran Men, While Steve Downing would end up winning the master's men division

Carolina Rivera Brought the sweetness, colombian style. Carolina raced with the elite ladies, and showed them that St Louis gals were not to be taken litely, with a strong win in the 2000 meters, and an overall win for Elite Ladies

Our Mighty little Warrior, Whitney Hampton won 1st place in her division, and showed that kids can be just as fast as the adults!  Good Job Whitney

Myself, I got 3rd in the elite men's open, and this was after shaking off two falls in the race. I just got edged out for a podium spot, but had strong 4th places in a field of 9 skaters in the other two races.

We thank the MSSL league and the owners of Skateworld for hosting this meet. It was a wonderful event that we look forward to next year - All Of Gateway Skated amazingly, and showed that the hard work all season, is paying off! We are Rock's team, and its all about home town pride. St Louis is THE BEST town for roller skating, and we will show it to all!

team

 

 

We are a group of Inline Speed Skaters that are in the St Louis area that train for national competition both Indoor and Outdoor.

We train both indoor and outdoor, and our level ranges from simply trying to stay fit by skating, to others who go to the next level and compete. We originally were a primarily indoor racing team, but have since reinvigurated the team to include both disciplines. As such we are welcoming all those who would like to learn our sport.

Please feel free to look around, as we are still growing this site. We will keep schedules, race dates, race results, anything that involves us, no matter how small or big will be on here.
