Up and Comers: Sean Grossman

New York City and it's surrounding areas have always been a breeding grounds for incredible rollerblading talent. It's arguable that it could be one of the best scenes in the world. In recent years as big name talent has left the area for greener pastures and different opportunities, a new breed of Tri State talent has been getting more shine. The first person that always immediately comes to my mind when I think of New York and blading these past three years is Sean Grossman. Between countless edits of himself and others, his online video 'Peep Game', and his upcoming video 'Big Apple Blade', Sean has single handedly put himself at the forefront of New York City rollerblading media. I have loved watching Sean's progression the past few years, and couldn't be prouder to present to you supreme connoisseur, Long Island resident, style buff, and my very good friend, Sean Grossman.

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.

Last Man Standing: Results

This weekend hosted the annual 2011 Last Man Standing competition in New York City and showed the world that rolling’s undying thirst to bring bladers together could not be stopped by even mother nature and the worst she could throw. Several weeks ago New York City, along with the rest of the eastern seaboard of the United States, was pounded by Hurricane Irene. As if that wasn’t enough, in the wake of all damages caused a tropical storm soon followed up and added to the destruction. The Last Man Standing event was supposed to take place over the weekend following Billy O’Neil’s New York City Street Invitational. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances with the condition of New York City at the time the event was postponed indefinitely. Lucky for us and the spirit of rolling LMS was rescheduled for this weekend and only several hours ago it all went down, burly as usual, and Staten Island’s own Franco Cammayo represented his local scene and took first place.
