The clip filmed by Yoeri Kurvers already reached 20k in two days, which is way more than any regular blading edit in this period.
The clip was featured on Ninemsn.com.au:
A rollerblade competitior at the Winterclash has narrowly avoided a catastrophic head injury after slipping during his run.
Footage of the incident shows Alex Burston fall to the ground as he approaches a jump with fellow competitor Josh Glowicki preparing to land a move on Burston’s head.
Miraculously, Burston manages to move his head and just evade Glowicki’s roller blades.
Burston can be seen looking skyward and patting Glowicki on the leg after regaining his feet following the incredible near-miss. Link

Ground Control GC.1, episode 3 opens with a never before seen section, initially created to bridge the gap between Nils Jansons and Alex Burston‘s profiles, but dropped at the last minute due to pacing issues.
We then move on to a full profile for Alex Burston, a British blader, born and bread in Manchester but due to his unquestionable ability, he is now making impressive leaps into an international scene of professional bladers.
Released in 2011, Ground Control came to define a years worth of achievement from the blading community. Featuring a strong roster of talent from the team itself and directed by Simon Mulvaney, this film documents the story of the frames beneath the feet of each of the GC team.
