Thomas Grosspietsch

Lifelong skater. Started skating at 5 years old in hand-me-down ice skates
on a frozen tennis court, then pick-up ice hockey, then local ice hockey league
in my teens. Fast forward to the inline craze in the 90’s–I already knew how
to skate! The world became my rink. Started entering races here and there, made the leap to Team Rainbo, now almost 10 years later my accomplishments include:
