Lausanne is back! The 3rd edition of the Lausanne Street&Bowl Contest took place at the legendary site of Vidy where the well known IRCL was once held.
Still dreaming to put Lausanne back amongst the top scenes of the rollerblading community, the organisers invested a lot of effort into making this contest a public celebration of Rollerblading including not only skaters but also people that aren’t familiar with our sport.
The contest included Pro, Amateur, Girl, Junior, Best Trick categories and a variety of extra events such as downhill runs, slalom blading, rollerblading initiation and waterjump.
Not to forget the gathering of the Old School and the New School generation of skaters on the amazing site of the Vidy Bowl by the Leman Lake.
Songs: Blockhead – Which One Of You Jerks Drank my Arnold Palmer ; Parov Stelar – Love.

Nitro Circus comes to North America next weekend, right? What’s going on? When does the tour start?
The actual tour isn’t ’til next year, but we are doing a one-off show in Vegas next weekend, so tomorrow I am heading to a spot in California where they have the ramp set up so we can catch some practice/learn some new stuff before that show.
It sounds like the Las Vegas stop is supposed to be pretty special. What’s the story?
Yeah, Vegas is going to go off! Since it is a single show no one really has to be worried about being healthy for a show the next night, so I think a lot of people are planning some special tricks for this one. Every show is already insane, so I can’t even imagine how crazy this one is going to be. On top of that, they are bringing in some special guests for this one, so it should be the best show to date.

Starting in August we will set out to accomplish what some people thought we failed at with our last project. We switched up the format a bit and instead of making a tour video we will be making a profile video with all the tour footage being used for updates online.
20 skaters limited to 20 tricks for their part. Anything else will go online to promote the project. Sure to be wild parts featuring some of the best established talent as well as up-and-coming skaters.
Featuring Alex Broskow, Chris Farmer, Don Bambrick, John Bolino, Billy O’Neill, Montre Livigston, Victor Arias, Michael Collins, Michael Garlinghouse, Bfree, PJ Peincak, Kruise Sapstein, Ross Kuhn, Tien Nguyen, Enanoh, Adam Exline, Dylan Davis, KC Roche, Dominic Sagona, Nick LaBarre.
With your pledges we can be assured of taking the above skaters to the far reaches of America and Canada and making for what could very well be the video of the year. Don’t look at this as a handout or a donation as you will be getting something very worthwhile with your donation (whichever level you choose) and you will be helping to keep the movement progressing.
Money will be used to fund travel costs. The more we have the further we go and the better the video will turn out.
We look forward to your support and keep in contact with the tour at youhatetoloveit.com.

Bonus: 90s with Mathieu Ledoux by Jon Jenkins (Revolution)
Mathieu Ledoux is unreal. We have never seen a more naturally gifted individual. Mathieu’s body control allows him to skate in a way that rollerblading has never seen before.
We wanted to portray Mathieu’s skating the best way possible with a Revolution 90 Seconds Edit. His positivity is contagious, you can’t help but want to better yourself after being around him.
Mathieu is humble, he expects nothing from rollerblading. He only wishes to inspire others to go their own direction with their skating after watching his.
Filmed & edited by Etienne Desportes. Canon 550d, 18-55mm.

Featuring: Steven Tat, Korey Waikiki, Geoff Acers, Howie Bennett, Jon Fromm, Taylor Ritchie, Chris Calkins, Ryan Timms, Tommy Chung, Erick Rodriguez, Courtney Cain, Dan Barnes, and Brent Hicks.
