Nick and Elliot on AZ contest in Moscow
USD team riders form England Nick Lomax and Elliot Stevens have visited Moscow, where they enjoyed street skating and participated in Andrey Zaytsev memorial contest / weekend. While I work on the big video and Nick makes the write-up for Blading.Info, please check this quick blitz-interview with the famous skaters and also take a glance on the little Conference / Blading.Info teaser/leftover bullshit(totally random stuff)...
SKATERS.RU: First of all, dudes, tell me where are you right now and what is going on? Nick & Elliot: Middle of nowhere, egg'n'bacon.
SKATERS.RU: Nick, explain how does it feel to work with such a genius of inline skating videography as Dom West? Nick: He is the best at what he does. There's nothing but honor to film with him, he just knows what to do!
Dear readers, please check out this Dom West gem if you haven't done so yet - it's worth it:
SKATERS.RU: We feel that everyone must see this new edit from Dom with you and Elliot. What cities have you visited while filming for it? Where is that sketchy metal skating pool? Nick: We started in London, then filmed in Brighton, Hastings, Portsmouth. And the bowl is SUPER-secret. So many people ask us, but we can't tell everyone, because it will be impossible to skate it. All I can share is that it's around Hastings.
SKATERS.RU: Elliot, why are you sitting in front of Ipad instead of shredding. Elliot: Cause I've lost my bag at the airport. Well, they've lost my bag, actually. (Nick laughs)
Elliot's first morning in Moscow - unsuccessful backflip (Photo - Lomax)
SKATERS.RU: What are the websites you spend your most time looking at? Elliot: Facebook and rollernews, probably.
SKATERS.RU: How often do you work as a model? Elliot: Some month I can get like a lot of work, and another month not as much. I used to work at shoe store office. And now I work at Reiss(reissonline.com) - the store that sells pretty good suits.

SKATERS.RU: Elliot, you probably get this question every day, but what's the story with VALO and what are your expectations with USD? Elliot: VALO were cool, liked skating them, I just saw more opportunity with USD, it's like the new project to start for myself, skating for different company. I'm expecting to travel around, hopefully. Get some more filming done. Try to put together an online section for USD!
Elliot's welcome to USD poster
SKATERS.RU: Did you expect your first trip to be in such an unusual place as Russia? Elliot: Definitely not, but I'm fucking enjoying it already. Quite interested in what's gonna happen this week and what crazy things I'm gonna see!
Stay tuned and keep checking Blading.Info for my soon to come new edit and Nick's write up, which offers the most quality rollerblading content on the interwebz!
