Since the start of the season, Hurricane Group has been motived to reconnect with FISE’s initial mission of bringing together riders and fans to celebrate action sports and the values that unite them. FISE Montpellier was intended as a real urban sports party where everyone is invited, from Amateurs to Pros, and including the many spectators that make the atmosphere at this iconic festival so special.
With the current sanitary situation and many restrictions, which would drastically limit the number of people able to attend the event, it is no longer possible to meet our ambitions for the festival. Without the crowds of enthusiasts and international riders , no format envisaged can recreate what has ensured the success of FISE Montpellier since 1997.
Faced with this, the organization is forced to cancel the September edition of FISE Montpellier 2021. As of now, the goal is to return in 2022 with a real FISE Montpellier, even more ambitious than all the previous editions.
Until then, the 2021 stages of the FISE Xperience Series, FISE Métropole and Savoie Mont Blanc Freestyle Tour presented by FISE are maintained, as well as the E-FISE Junior by Hot Wheels 2021 which continues throughout the summer.
Events, sorted by date (note: those are the dates featuring rollerblading events, if you want to check the full schedule, visit Fise.fr/en).
July 12 - Sept 1st • E-FISE Junior by Hot Wheels (Roller Park)
Initiated in 2020 in response to the health situation, the E-FISE Montpellier stood out for its ability to bring out young talents from all around the world. At the heart of the festival’s ambition since its creation, this desire to extend the passion for urban sports is anchored again in the coming season. By creating a partnership with the famous toys and tracks brand Hot Wheels, the E-FISE Junior by Hot Wheels will be devoted to Youths and will welcome all riders aged 16 & under to show their best performances. In BMX, Skateboard, Roller or Scooter Freestyle, this collaboration is driven to inspire kids' and teenagers' creativity, as well as their attraction for seeking big thrills on various fields of play. Organized during the July and August holidays, girls and boys take advantage of the summer to produce their videos, then broadcast them on the dedicated web platform.

FISE Montpellier (Spine Ramp) - CANCELLED (check this post)
Already recognized as one of the FISE unmissable spots, the heart of Montpellier will once again be taken over by the festival in September for a brand new event.

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).
