Between the Mind the Gap shows we found some time to go to a nice outdoor skatepark in Zurich which was close to the event.
Event photographer Dominic Swagemakers found some time to put his skates on this sunny session together with Jan Hoogtijeling, Dick Heerkens, oldschool Rollerblade rider Dihn Thai and myself. Later that day we did our last Mind the Gap show with some crazy spins from Swiss rider Maxime Genoud.

The Mind the Gap skate contest, organized by former world champion Sven Boekhorst is back this year.
The first stop of the Mind the Gap tour took place two weeks ago in Rennes, France during the famous and international speed skating event called Rennes sur Roulettes.
French skater Romain Godenaire took the first place and skated away € 555,-. Swiss skater Maxime Genaud took second place.
Taylor Latouche from Paris got 3rd. He tried the most insane trick ever during the Mind the Contest: a Double backflip 180.
If he landed this trick he would probably took 1st place. Unfortunately he took a nasty slam. Note: The slam looks very bad, but Taylor is fine and has no injury.
French skater Taylor Latouche took a nasty slam with his double backflip 180 this weekend at the Rennes sur Roulettes festival.
Hopefully we will recover for the 2nd Mind the Gap stop in Eindhoven 25th of may.
