Montreal Classics 2011 Contest Report + Official Be-Mag Edit by Immony Men

It has been really tough watching Guillaume Roy (owner of Lylac Skateshop) run around town and work his magic to make this competition happen. It makes me proud to be a part of the Montreal Classic. Year after year Danny Laroche and Guillaume Roy continue to organized this amazing event. A lot has changed with the Montreal scene since the very first Classics in 2001.

Up and comers: Kevin Lapierre

Kevin is from the same town that I grew up in. I remember the first time I saw him at the local park: right away I knew that this kid had true love for blading! He makes me think of myself when I was his age. Kevin is a amazing person. He is humble, respectful and fun to be around with. And the guy can freaking shred! He skates fast, solid and precise like a diamond. It's really inspiring to see him be so passionate and following his dream to be part of our little community. He has not yet beat me to a game of B.L.A.D.E, but I guess it's cause I don't want to play against him anymore. I would get my ass kicked. Merci Kevin pour tout!
