This year, the Roller Games are taking place in Nanjing, China. These games bring together all forms of inline skating, so aggressive /freestyle skating is part of that, too, of course.
USD Skates was well represented, with lots of countries sending in their top riders, fighting for the FIRS world championship. Here, we show you each USD rider’s best run from the first day.
As it rained all day of the second competition day, this semi-final score was also the final score in the end.

Because of the rainy weather conditions the contest was moved to Sunday. But with some more weather delays we managed to pull a 1 run contest together. This didn’t kill the riders motivation as they were still going hard. Video: Bob Drenth.

Here is a recap from the Pro Freestyle competition at Scheveningen beach (The Hague, Netherlands). Next stop: 1 July in Heerlen. Visit Profreestyle.nl.
The Rollerblade Inline Contest was a great success, we had amazing riders present like the World Champion Roman Abrate from France, he took the lead after a very impressive run and got 1st place!
The Dutch riders were also present, they were sending it high and hard. Jelle Briggeman took 2nd place after flying high and doing the biggest bio we saw.
Sometimes the riders make it the judges very difficult, we had two riders who were both using the park to the fullest and kept going like they had unlimted energy. So the judged decided on a shared 3rd place for Sem Croft and Jaro Frijn.
So 4th place was left empty, 5th and 6th place also received a price, Tom van Hemert and Erik Droogh. We were very excited to see we also had some very young kids competing with the big boys. It seemed like they were having a blast and a great experience. The youngest skates Laus Valk is 10 years old. - Erik Droogh.
