2014 has been a good one. New products got released, people traveled from all over the world to visit some of the great events out there, awesome videos and edits came out and the vibe has been great in general. But of course, everyone’s got their personal favorites and we wanted to know how 2014 looked like for some of our favorite pro riders.

When Atlanta’s Carson Starnes decided to move to Barcelona to pursue his education, he probably didn’t know how much traveling that decision would cause. Being in Europe opened up plenty of opportunities to visit events and see different places, and of course he took them all. Traveling all over the place, finding himself on podiums at different events and enjoying what could be the summer of a lifetime; not the worst year for one of blading’s most talked about up and comers. Take a look yourself.
