North America[edit]

Tour skating is still very rare here in North America, even in areas with a similar climate to central Sweden. Hopefully, that will change soon. The main skating expert in North America is Jamie Hess in Vermont. He has skating links at:

Broken links[edit]

There are now many broken links (in What links here) caused by the deletion of material (deleted on Jan 12 2009) from this article. In addition, there are many links to this article from external sites. Perhaps the deleted material should be re-inserted in Tour_skating, and a section added about Netherlands style tour skating(nl toerschaatsen) with proper references such as: [1] and [2] and this image from Wikimedia Commons: Two Tour skating styles: Netherlands(left) and Nordic (right)

Merged deleted sections[edit]

As discussed on Talk:Nordic-skating, I've returned the deleted sections and added a section describing the difference between the Swedish style and the Netherlands (Toerschaatsen)

there is no "swedish style" nor "dutch style" Tour skating!

Nordic skating is totally different skating sport, don´t You understand. Read my other notes. I will put this case to the Wikipedia Staff with strict notes by the Skating Unions--MOddeBonniot (talk) 17:15, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Totally false information/article[edit]

Tour skating (Toerschaatsen) is dutch skating on natural ice and has nothing to do with later born Nordic skating, which is practised in the Nordic countries!!!/Maarten Odde de Bonniot; Project Chief of Finnish Skating Union SLL-SLU/Speed Skating Association of Finland, contact person of KNSB state Skating Union of Netherlands--MOddeBonniot (talk) 17:10, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

I have written article of Nordic skating: link: according to the strict skating terms of the official dutch and finnish skating Unions: KNSB of Netherlands and Skating Union of Finland SLL-SLU/Speed Skating association of Finland: Maarten Odde de Bonniot; Project Chief of Finnish Skating nion SLL-SLU --MOddeBonniot (talk) 16:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC) The articles before and specially written of Tour skating are totally false and written by total amateurs.--MOddeBonniot (talk) 16:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC) Nordic skating and Tour skating (Toerschaatsen) are two totally different skatingsports and officially defined so: link: The only right way is to write two separate article of these two different skatingsports--MOddeBonniot (talk) 16:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Please, put my article active on place of false article of Tour skating! I have also written a article of Tour skating as it is officially right, but some amateur has removed it! Please put that back. There seems to be severe problems with the reliability of Wikipedia - no amateurs should write about such things and especially totally false information. There is much official information about the official terms conserning the different skatingsports! This official information is found in countries state authorized Skating Union , in this case in Finland (Nordic country) Suomen Luisteluliitto SLL-SLU/Finnish Skating Union/Speed Skating Association of Finland, and Royal Dutch Skating Union KNSB. My above official information is based strictly to these official terms made by these Skating Unions!--MOddeBonniot (talk) 17:10, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
