The PMG association (Pari Multi Glisse) is 10 years old, and organized the “Trophees Parisiens de la glisse 2017” on July 1st, 2017 including the “Battle of Bercy” at (you guessed it) the skatepark of Bercy.
The main event featured the usual contests (AM, Juniors, Girls, 13-, 13+) and ended with a battle with the pros. 7 pro riders were invited: Guillaume le Gentil, Nicolas Auroux, Denis Gul, Jeremy Melique, Victor Daum, Julien Cudot, Frederic Bukowski as well as the winner of the AM contest. The event distributed 2000 euros in prizes ($2300: 1000€ for the first place, 600€ second place, 300€ for the 3rd, 100€ the 4th).
A second video is available (PLAY) presenting the event (french language), and covering all of the others pools. Visit Parimultiglisse.com.

The FISE World Games in Montpellier is all wrapped up, and now they are moving on to the next stop in Canet located in the south of France. Rollerblade represented in Montpellier. Here is a brief summary about the experience.
Poni from Jakarta, Indonesia and Guillaume le Gentil from Paris, France entered the rail battle. Poni was pleased to finish the contest with a very nice sweat-stance. The feat was especially challenging because Poni lost his skates prior to the event starting. He had to compete on a pair of Rollerblade skates quickly put together from spare parts. Guillaume also skated during the rail contest and impressed the spectators and judges with his stylish tricks.
Sven Boekhorst had a great contest the week before taking home 1st Place on the Spine Ramp and 2nd Place in Park. At Montpellier Sven competed in the Park, Slopestyle and the Spine Ramp contests. It was a challenging series of events for Sven, but he was still able to push through and take home a 6th place finish in the Spine Ramp competition.
Jeremy Suarez was on fire heading into Montpellier, and was a serious contender for the gold medal. Unfortunately our Belgium powerhouse was injured during the Roller Freestyle Park Pro Invitational practice and couldn’t compete at the FISE World Games.
Au revoir FISE World Games Monpellier, and Hola Barcelona Extreme Games (June 17-18th at Parc del Forum).
Freeskiing and Inline Street Skating have many similar traits. So I Decided to cross over between the two sports .
Three years ago, I saw my inline skating friends enjoying Freeski. I was quiet impressed, and I wanted to test myself to see if my predispositions for inline street skating can help me on Freeski. So here I am today.
This year I have joined my friends in the snowpark for the first time. They gave me tips and a huge boost of motivation to jump and slide on different obstacles. It was like when you are a kid and you discover a skatepark, but you already know how to do a few tricks. Learning tricks is much faster because I can use everything I already know from inline street skating. - Guillaume le Gentil.
Guillaume Le Gentil is well known for his perfect style when it comes to lacing tricks on his NJ5 street skates. December of last year Guillaume dropped his VOD.
The masterpiece produced and shot by Antonin Folliot was very well received. We proudly present you Lost in Paris with Guillaume Le Gentil. Watch this masterpiece free of charge. - Rollerblade.com.
