It is with great sadness that we’ve received the news about Gilbert Gonzalez’s passing after an accident during a blading session. The Be-Mag staff wishes to offer our condolences to Gilbert’s family and friends. This is a great loss for the whole rollerblading community, world-wide.
Razors, the company that supported Gilbert’s skating, put out a short release on hiss passing: “Today is a sad day for all the bladers in the world, our friend and Flow rider from Spain, Gilbert Gonzalez from our spanish team died on Monday, October 3rd 2016 after a hard fall on his head while riding street in Malaga, he spent some days fighting for his life but his injuries were too bad and he left us to keep blading forever. At just 22 years old, Gilbert was full of life and wishes, always smiling and pushing his skating to the limit, like a true shredder.
We had big plans for you on the Spanish team and now you’ve gone, Gil. We will always remember you, blade in heaven friend.
Our hearts and prayers are now with Gilbert’s friends and family”.
