Faithful to the FISE Xperience Canet-en-Roussillon stage, the highest European level met for the tenth edition of this event, which has become an unmissable one for the French roller scene.
Earlier in the day, Kids, Juniors and Amateurs finals had warmed up the Park especially built for the occasion. The increasing level of young riders is already arousing the interest of many partners who are investing in the new generation to support their progress. Following their podium, a Grind Contest invited all riders to challenge each other by shredding on a rail, showcasing the rookies commitment who were facing the Pros.
The start-list announced an epic contest, and the level of these ones final has met all its promises. Rather discreet in training, Julien Cudot has achieved what he does best - pulling out of the hat a stratospheric run that no one had seen coming. Both the sequence of tricks, their technicality and their creativity, especially on transfers, testify to the talent of the Parisian, highlighted by a great amplitude to grab the first place.
He is closely followed by Jeremy Dominguez, who electrified the crowd on his first run with a massive Fakie Backflip on the Rainbow Transfer. Also on fire during these finals, Nicolas Servy won the bronze medal with a solid and aerial style, confirmed by the commitment during his Frontflip in Transfer.

I initially began this edit for Unlabelled to show all the best clips I shot during my “carrer” of videomaker in the aggressive inline skating but I just felt like I could do something cool to thank all the people who inspired me. It doesn’t mean that everyone is in the video, far from it.
So please have the pleasure to watch a part of those who are part of my lifetime on this Earth. I truly believe that the best is yet to come, I could have called that edit the 2.09€ video but “Snippets of a Blading Life” seems more cinematic #bladeordie. - Gaets Krop.

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.

Here is a quick edit of Jeremy Melique, filmed in Sainte-Maxime (France). Riding for SRD, Jeremy is a nice guy and an awesome skater. Here is just a little part of his skating but it was a good opportunity for me to try my new camera Panasonic GH4! - Roman Abrate.
