The “Italian Bladers Connection” was founded in the early winter months of 2011. When a group of friends was on their way to Winterclash, they figured out they had to do something about the small, but rather strong scene from Italy. They decided to put all Italian blader contests and events under the same banner. Lucas Brandi, Jason Adriani, Nicola Fiorenza, Pietro Firrincieli and Marco Valera shared their ideas which led to the creation of a layout for the championships, which turned out to be a great success.

In fact, during the 2011 IBC, which actually was a big experiment, it became clear that there had to be an IBC Championship next year. At the Championships there were the best Italian athletes, there was a superb vibe, amazing group moments and everybody was very happy about the way the bladers had managed the contest as they wanted it to be.
I am sure in 2012, with the help of our sponsors, the IBC will bring a big boost to the Italian blader scene which is still less developed than the rest of Europe. The formula will always be the same: Lots of fun, many stops, and a little bit of agonism. And above all, we hope to introduce rollerblading in places where it is still unknown yet.
I would like to thank our sponsors The Conference, Grindhouse, Razors, Jug, Remz, Groundcontrol, Fenfanix, Freemove, Fardamatti, Cream Media and Fiorenza Pasquale SRL.
