Dutch Champion Rollerblading crowned in ‘s-Hertogenbosch
Last Saturday the third and final round of the Dutch Championship series toke place. The best Dutch riders were present to compete for the final points.
The junior winner became Tasheed Zaalman from Rotterdam and the senior title was taken by Dick Heerkens from Amsterdam. Although both were in the top of the ranking before the final round already, it was still a round full of excitement. After two prelims in Rotterdam and Eindhoven, the exiting showdown toke place in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
In the senior competition two guys, both Rollerblade team riders, Dick Heerkens and Adil Farhouni, had the biggest chance on winning the overall competition. Both showed that they both came to win, unfortunately Adil Farhouni slammed hard in the prelims of the day which made it impossible for him to compete in the third round final.
Without Adil Farhouni in the final, it was almost sure that Dick was going to win the overall ranking. But of course he still had to impress the judges to obtain some more points. Dick succeeded, with a lot of style, technique and some big tricks, he easily toke the overall title. Despite of not competing in the final, Adil Farhouni still had enough points to end up third in the overall ranking.
The second place in the overall ranking was for Rik van Huik from Zoetermeer, who won the third round.
In the junior contest the battle between the first two riders, Tasheed Zaalman and Sem Croft, in the overall ranking was even harder. Both riders obtained the same amount of points in the two prelim rounds. Also in the third round the difference was so small that it was very hard for the judges to decide. In the end Tasheed won the third round which made him the overall winner in the junior competition.
Unfortunately Tasheed broke his wrist with his final trick in the third round. Therefore he had to go to the hospital which made it impossible for him to be at the winners announcement.
Just a few points behind Tasheed came Sem Croft on second place. The third place was for Tom de Boer. Both three riders on the junior podium come from Rotterdam, so a strong scene is building up there.
After the finals a small best trick contest was held, easily won by another guy from Rotterdam: Martin van Drunen.
Overall Oeteldope, Dutch Championship Rollerblading, was a great succes and will definitely return in 2012.
It will be bigger again with more rounds all over the Netherlands. In the meantime the organization will keep motivating the skaters to be part of this growing sport and lifestyle. The next event, they are organizing, will be the Mind the Gap contest at the Hiphop in Duketown event on the 25th of June.

Last saturday the first round of the Dutch Championships took place in Rotterdam. Adil Farhouni from Almere won this first round in the senior category.
The winner at the juniors was Tasheed Zaalman from Rotterdam. An overall ranking will determine who will become the new Dutch Champion after two more events, held in the next four weeks.
This Dutch championship consists of three rounds at three different places in the Netherlands. The concept is unique since all the competitors get to skate together for a couple of minutes, which gives them more time to impress the judges.
At the first stop in Rotterdam more than 40 of the best Dutch skaters competed and the concept worked out very well.
The level of the skaters was a lot higher than last year and the number of competitors increased as well. In the final of the first round 10 skaters had to skate together for 15 minutes on a place in the skatepark chosen by themselves.
After these 15 minutes the judges determined the final ranking. Per ranking place the skaters get a certain number of points for the overall ranking.
Tasheed and Adil made a perfect start for the overall ranking, but of course the rest of the top 10 will have a lot of chance on becoming the Dutch Champion as well. There will be two more events to collect points:
– Eindhoven (Area 51 Skatepark) on April 2nd, 2011
– Denbosch (WorldSkateCenter) on April 16th, 2011
