“It’s alright, just my fingers innit!” That statement came from Jake Ricketts, after falling far and fast to the concrete, breaking two fingers and going back to nail the trick and the AM first place. It pretty much sums up the badassery that rollerblading in general and the UK scene in particular is so proud of, and it was on full display at Laced weekend.
The morning of Laced was freezing cold. While the rest of England was gripped in snow, it seemed to just rain ice in Liverpool. No amount of layers could save you. Inside, Rampworx was no better and we clung to our cups of coffee for the illusion of warmth.
If you are into European Rollerblading, you might have come across the Amsterdam local Edwin Wieringh. Dutch, cleanest style ever, textbook truespin topsouls, always in a good mode and full of power – those are just some characteristics for a guy who loves Rollerblading more than anything else in his life and that often shreds the Amsterdam streets just by himself. There are some Rollerbladers in our industry that are known worldwide for their extraordinary talent although they have never won an international contest title. Edwin Wieringh has been one of those people – at least until the weekend of June 11th 2011 when he took the Chaz Sands Invite 2011 Amateur comp. When we got the results from our local media team there was a big "Halleluja!" going on in the office. It was just a matter of time that Edwin would win an international recognized contest. We thought that's reason enough to catch up with the Dutch super dude. Curtains up for Edwin "from hell" Wieringh.
I've never missed a Chaz Sands Invitational since they began, with them never failing to leave a great impression upon rollerblading. Truthfully this year I turned up with the half thought of "Will it match the last 4 years?" How wrong I could have been...

Last week we caught up with one of the freshest young talents in the skatepark, 14 year old Matty Lavelle. But dont let his age fool you this kid has some serious skills. This is his first edit and im sure it will not be his last and he did not hold back. There where so many tricks that he wanted to do but we're gonna save them for next time. Matty recently placed 1st in the Slamm Jamm Amateurs contest and has already registered for the Laced contest at Rampworx on February 4th 2012. Enjoy! -Richard Johnson
