Windy City Riot 2009: Razors Podcast & Results

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

The Windy City Riot is one of the longest running street contests in rollerblading, and one of the few street contests even happening these days. The Riot is a staple in the Chicago scene, and has a strong core group of skaters that have helped keep this competition at the level its at. It seems every year the Riot brings a random batch of rollerblading A-Listers, and usually whichever one of them is wearing a pair of TRS takes the trophy. But finally this year the curse was broken when Steve Lerner destroyed every spot with his smooth, effortless skating, and switch/natural repertoire of tricks.

Thanks to Collin Martin and Juan Herrera for putting the event on again this year, and to everyone who came out and continues to do so year after year.
