This year, the Roller Games are taking place in Nanjing, China. These games bring together all forms of inline skating, so aggressive /freestyle skating is part of that, too, of course.
USD Skates was well represented, with lots of countries sending in their top riders, fighting for the FIRS world championship. Here, we show you each USD rider’s best run from the first day.
As it rained all day of the second competition day, this semi-final score was also the final score in the end.
Starring: Mery Munoz (Spain), Worapoj Boonnim (Thailand), Tomek Przybylik (Poland), Jelle Briggeman (Netherlands), Jeremy Melique (France), Piotrek Combrzynski (Poland), Diego Guilloud (Switzerland) & Roman Abrate (France).
