I had a problem with my right shoulder and had surgery in February. Rehabilitation was a very very hard and long journey, but I was able to overcome it with the support of my friends and family. I’m also grateful that I came back here again. It was my first Sydney. I’m proud to have done this with Karsten Boysen and Dom West. Great cityscape matches their beautiful camera work. Big Arigato! - Yuto Goto.

And about the rumors:
In the past week we have seen rumors going around about the company being on sale and on the edge of being closed. We would like to ensure you all that after 70 years of glorious work, we are here to stay. Roces is not going anywhere (Post on IG).

Rollerblading and inline skating news. It looks like Roces are in a spot of bother and will be selling (article in italian). Is this the end of the Roces aggressive skating team? USD recent marketing has come under scrutiny - did you understand their message? Rollerblading might possibly make an appearance at the Olympics LA 2028 (article)- what are your thoughts?

On May 20, 2021, I’ve received a mood board from Ilia Savosin for this skate; the rest is history. It’s with so much joy that today we announce Ilia as a pro team member. We knew he would have a spot on the pro team almost immediately; his indisputable talent goes along with incredible professionalism that never stops to amaze me. I’m thrilled and honored to be working with such a determined, creative, and thoughtful mind. I’m also thrilled to be working together today at what I wish will be a long and successful career. Also, a huge thanks to the Russian crew that kept the secret and shot a masterpiece of a promo. - Martina Marg, Creative direction at Roces.
