After a successful year with events in Bremen, Leipzig, Bonn, and Wuppertal, the finals of Grindhouse Miniramp Masters 2011 took place on the 17th of December in Cologne, Germany. In the second year of its creation, the series was host to over 100 competitors. Skaters from all over the country attended and made the final event one to remember.
Preparing for months for one of the biggest competitions in Florida, Bladesgiving has turned out to be one of the funnest and biggest rollerblading events in the Southern United States along with the Pow-wow. And we are only in our second year! Skaters gathered from all over the country for a chance to rank up the WRS points and take home some cash and the huge trophy. Tim Franken, out of San Diego, Razors rider Wake Schepman, out of PA, Pro SSM rider Joey Chase and Razors flow Sammy Chase, out of Orlando, just to name a few. Also, coming all the way from Canada was our good friend Kevin Lapierre, who hurt his ankle warming up, and had to drop out of the contest. He made that huge trip, and our sympathies are with him, and we hope he recovers very soon.
The BOK is the oldest competition in the Netherlands and it has the best vibe. That is why skaters from all over the country come specifically to this skatepark in the east of the Netherlands. Check out this report of the event!
Richard Wilson came out nowhere and decided to host a B.L.A.D.E competition in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas. He even invited his friend Matt Mickey of Intuition Skate Shop to help out with his first time event. All in all, this was just another excuse to bring together the disconnected blader crews of north Texas. Big ups to Big Bird and everyone that came out. -Pat Leal
The 1st annual DFW B.L.A.D.E. Tournament in McKinney, Texas was a good time and a complete success. 20 bladers from all over Texas battled it out at three spots for cash and prizes. In the end, Josh Navarifar skated his way to a first place victory. After the official after party at Delaney’s Irish Pub and Grill in McKinney, OG Dallas blader/socialite Jason Reyna was kind enough to escort us into his home turf of Deep Bellum for a night out. There we hit up the Double Wide to hang out, and met the original singer from Pantera – Terry Glaze. We closed out the night at Serious Pizza, and after watching the Ground Control video at Jason’s house, it was time for sleep. Check the exclusive gallery and official results below, and stay tuned for the official edit from Pat Leal.

The comp was very much for the big boys only. I didn't want to make a 20min edit which I could have with all the monster tricks that went down. I'm sure you will see in other edits the crazy 900 attempts that Paulie Haack tried and a bunch of other tricks that I didn't have time to squeeze in. -Bradley Harold Watson
