Mind The Gap 2012: Rennes, France

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.

RE: Mind the Gap Finals

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Mind the Gap

Sunday 12th of september was scheduled for the Mind the gap 2010 tour finals in collaboration with World on Wheels in the city centre of Eindhoven. The course was setup on the Saturday during a beautiful day. Nothing could go wrong…

Unfortunately Sunday was a huge downer for the riders and organisation. The rain came poring down for the whole day, it was impossible to do the Mind the Gap finals during the day.

The two highlights of the rainy day were: a small session in the kiddie course with David Sizemore killing even the smallest obstacles.

At around 17:30 the sky opened up and even the sun touched the Mind the Gap setup. A small rail session started with Dick Heerkens and Orveo Macdonald, the audience at the spot were surprised by the enthusiastic session.

The organisation of Mind the Gap decided not to end Mind the Gap 2010 without the final it deserves. We have decided to schedule a new stop for the finals.

The final will be held on Sunday September 26th in Rotterdam during the Urban Challenge, yes we’re going back like the years before.

An addition to the course will be the concrete skatepark at the location of Streetplaza Zuiderpark.

Timetable for 26.09.2010: 1st round – 15:20, 2nd round – 16:30, Final round – 18:00.

How to get to “Rotterdam Streetplaza” Zuiderpark??
From the central station of Rotterdam, metro D towards Spijkenisse De Akkers, exit Zuidplein?. From there it will be a 3 minute walk to the RE: MIND THE GAP finals 2010.
