A few years ago, a new face appeared in the Montreal skating scene. I first met Kevin about 5 years ago in Montreal. He came at the shop with his parent to buy his first pair of skates. I never seen a kid getting new skates and being as much excited as Kevin. At that time, I knew this kid had something different. A couple of months after, local skaters started to get used to see Kevin at differents sessions even if was living 60 miles away from Montreal. I didn’t take so long to realised that Kevin was gifted with a natural talent.
Right from the start, Kevin Lapierre had the chance to have Charles-Alexandre Nantel as a private instructor of a summer camp, and later on have Drummondville native: Mathieu Ledoux, as a hometown friend skater. The quality of the model he got right at the beginning, give Kevin’s skating a lot of maturity and style.
Kevin is 100% commited to rollerblading, his love for skating is very inspirationnal. Kevin skate everyday of the year, when the weather let him skate, if he can’t, he’ll drive 60miles to come meet me at Lylac, and skate South-Parc, at least 3 times a week. On top of that, he have attended pretty much every major events taking place in East America for the past 3 years. He still make sure to do everything to be where there is something going on about rollerblading, from Woodward, to WRS there is a good chance you already saw him.
Kevin is one of the most humble person I ever met, if you ever see him in an event, go talk to him, even if his english is limited, he will be more than happy to talk to you. Kevin infinite love and commitment in rollerblading will take him far, look out for Kevin, cause there is a good chance he will be at your next local event.
