Welcome to the 6th Annual Last Man Standing Street Competition brought to you by Victor Callender and Wheels In Motion. Victor started the contest series to bring more awareness to New York City's Rollerblading scene. This year the contest was held Uptown in a place locals have deemed "The Pit." With its variety of obstacles and acceptance from the parks department, "The Pit" created a perfect setting for the competition for a second year in a row.
After a week of non-stop rain in New York City, we finally had a day in the sun to shred. Foley square would be the meet up location for the “End of the World” session with the Valo Team. Bladers came from all boroughs in NYC for a chance to hang out and skate with some of their favorite pros. Present were Jon Julio, Erik Bailey, Franco Cammayo, Alex Broskow, Ivan Narez, Brandon Smith and Victor Arias. The session began on the steps of the Supreme Court Building, where people seemed to be getting worked coming off the court house gap.
Saturday, November 27th, 2010 was the night of the highly anticipated fourth installment to the We Are Valo series titled Valo4Life, directed by Ivan Narez. This would take place in the Helen Mills Theater which is located on w26th st in Manhattan. NYC was ready for what the internet buzz calls ”One of the greatest skate movies to date”. The event which has been generated a lot of talk via facebook, was organised by Victor Callender who organizes such events as Last Man Standing, Battle My Crew and Let’s Roll NY sessions. As I walked into the theatre, the first object I notice is the Valo4life billboard which is positioned at the foot of the steps.
Be-Mag sent out one of his New York ambassadors, Joseph Perez, to the first round of this year's Last Man Standing competition. The New York skate scene has been blowing up strongly over the last couple years. Due to the recent New York edits floating through the Rollerblading media the rise of the scene has become even more aware. The first round of the Last Man Standing comp was just another testimony for it. Joseph covered the full event for us and reconstructed the hype that went down there. If this is the Amateur level, I wonder what can be expected next weekend from the PRO-category. Good to know we are sending out again people to cover the event for us here. But now it's time for the Amateur coverage. Enjoy it.
The news of another New York City competition brought to me emotions of pride and joy since the competition scene in NYC has been far too few and far between. But when I found out that this year's 1st installment of the "Last Man Standing" series was going to take place in Staten Island ...
