There are no solutions in rollerblading because rollerblading does not need fixed. Rollerblading is pretty bad ass the way it is. However, there are some things that could be better. This television pilot, WRS, BCSD and numerous other projects are merely efforts to make things better, not solutions. Specifically, this television pilot was an effort to see competitive rollerblading on television again. In some ways it failed and in other ways it was completely successful. Please read below to learn the full story.

We thought this might be of interest for some of you, if not most. Have a look at the advert and tell us what you think in the comments, please. Will this be a big hit for Valo? Will Valo light be a lower end model or a mold for pro boots only? New soulplates? New materials for the shells? What do you expect?
Razors put and instructional video together which will go in the boxes of their Junior and entry level skates. The goal is to give beginners and parents an idea what they can do with aggressive skates and an insight into our sport. Great initiative by Razors! Keep up planting the seeds for the future of Rollerblading!
The FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa is coming up pretty soon! In soccer - as well as in rollerblading - the support of fans and the crowd is very important. You know it. By watching comps like the WInterclash and BCSD you have seen the crowd going wild. For a soccer team the supporting crowd is often labelled as the 12th man on the court. That's why Mercedes Benz and the DFB (German Soccer Association) started a project, entitled "Der 4. Stern für Deutschland", which is adressed to all fans in Germany.
People don't stop releasing edits from this year's BCSD. David Amkhinich enables us a further view on the madness. Thank you! Bittercold Showdown competition in Detroit, MI took place on Feb. 27 2010. It was incredible! Filmed / Ed...
The Bitter Cold Showdown started in 2001 at Blindside Sports in Elkhart, IN as a small rollerblading video premiere, contest and trade show. It has grown to become one of the largest gatherings in the world for the rollerblading community. Our goals since the beginning was to develop an event that was self-sustained by its sponsors and allowed everyone attending access to all activities. Currently, the trade show pays for all costs surrounding the event, which allows 100% of admissions to be used as prize money. In 2009, 264 rollerbladers competed for the Bitter Cold Showdown title.
