An Empire skater leads Dennis Humphrey and Herb Gayle in the Master Men's 15km race.

A beautiful day greeted skaters at Orchard Beach Park for the opening of the 2004 Empire Skate Series. Racing was fast and most of the podium placements were decided in a sprint. It was surprising to see that very few skaters fell. The mens race was won by Chris Creveling (Empire Speed). Creveling got out in a break to earn the win. The race featured a sesaw battle between Empire Speed and CanarIam skaters. The womens race was decided in the final sprint when Helen Havam overpowered Skylar Mckormack in a 6-skater sprint.
