The Colorado Road Trip 2011 – Day One Update

The trip kicked off at Silverthorne Skatepark at 10:45am as rollerbladers from all over began to pour into the already jam-packed parking lot. The headcount reached about sixty as all corners of the park were littered with tight pant wearing, urethane cruising, beer guzzling, road trippin’ rollers. Within minutes the warm-ups began soon followed by hammers getting dropped on everything. Now feature was left alone as misties and spins gliding through the air were as frequent as the broken in frames danced on the coping of the bowls and ledges. After three hours the skate laces were loosened as everyone began to pile back into their rides and head for food. Next stop, Edwards Skatepark just outside of Vail.
