Ten years may have passed since the last BCSD but the excitement raged on as an international field of bladers took to the course at Modern Skatepark for a chance to earn the title of BCSD Champ. After a long day of impressive blading and exciting tricks, Luke Naylor took the title with an incredible Finals-round showing where he leveled up in real time, linking highly technical tricks back-to-back to come out on top. Congrats to everyone that came out to Detroit for the event and each and every competitor, with special thanks to Daniel Kinney for making it happen “one more time.” - Oneblademag.com.

Although the event is inclusive across all ages, genders, skill levels, styles & disciplines, the contest is for advanced rollerblading competitors only. Extensive competition experience is absolutely required. Unlike past events, the contest will NOT be open to all competitors. There will only be 1 advanced rollerblading contest.
