In the course of the development of extreme sport of human skating accumulated over 20 years, Jean Yves Blondeau has become the world’s top athlete in this project. He is known as the most skilled and courageous skater in the world today. He often takes high-speed skating on mountain roads all over the world, and has set a speed record of more than 126 kilometers per hour, which has never been matched by anyone.

This sport is not only suitable for various types of roads and highways, but also can be carried out in skiing venues and winter Olympics sled speed-down track. It is a model project of reuse of winter Olympic competition facilities.

In this exchange, Mr. Jean Yves Blondeau introduced more about the equipment, clothing and derivatives he designed and developed for the sport. It turned out that Mr. Jean Yves Blondeau was not only an inventor of sports, but also a master of industrial design, graphic design and costume design. He designed and invented a wheeled suit with 32 wheels. Besides the wheeled shoes with soles, there were pulleys on the fore chest, back, elbows and knees, so it could be transformed like Transformers. Even if he is known in China as “humain transformer” it is good to remind that the film appeared years after the creation of Mr Blondeau. In fact there are some sequences of the Movie “Transformers” that are clearly inspired by the motions of Jean Yves Blondeau rolling in all kinds of positions. These transitions from position to another, like from running standing diving into rolling on chest, have been exposed on TV and video worldwide since 1996. Mr Blondeau named the use, equipment and series of clothing “Buggy Rollin”. In the brand of Buggy Rollin, Mr. Jean Yves Blondeau’s passion and talent are poured into it.

The accomplishment of a perfect day in the life of a journey in love.

These outdoor activity clothes are perfect for globe trotter travelers, as its creator, while keeping surprises in the intimate life and its sensual strip tease. Like a multi-layered perfume, the head note is romantic, Jean Yves Blondeau plays the lucky charm in pragmatic comfort in the body note that leaves freedom of movement, and the final heart note is joyful and sexy. It is the accomplishment of a perfect day in the life of a journey in love.

Extreme sports bring people endless excitement and screaming feeling. In addition to this feeling, Buggy Rollin’s pursuit of safety and comfort is also the core value of its brand.

Some associations and grand competitions held in Nanjing, Shanghai and Qinhuangdao. The sport’s ornamental and highly participatory nature makes it a very strong cultural and tourism project. At present, many scenic spots are also discussing with Jean Yves Blondeau about the introduction and development of this project. We expect Buggy Rollin to become a fashionable way of sport and bring more rich and beautiful contents to our life.

Colorfull BUGGY ROLLIN

The perfect alignment of facts

There is only one day in the year when it is possible to get such picture. This the happiness of a good synchronicity, every thing was put together.

First you need a good BUGY ROLLIN pilot, with an artistic eye, and good notion of in site choreography. With Jean Yves Blondeau all is good.

Pilot and Armor in perfect coherence.

Also the pilot should have the right outfit. This BUGGY ROLLIN wheel suit named 9 Dragon is a work of art by itself. The combination of hand made drawings are running on the surfaces of the shells of the armor as well as on the stretch under armor lycra (spandex) suit. The helmet is also in coherence with the dragon concept. Nine is the most powerful number in Chinese tradition and also for Nicholas Tesla (with 3 and 6). This number was reserve for the use of the emperor only. Now a days, the more number 9 appears on Chinese plate number, the more powerful is the owner.
Dragon stands for the most powerful animal. It has a strong spirit of freedom, that fit perfectly to Jean Yves Blondeau mind and family heritage.

Inspired Photographer

Second you need a good photographer, who works fast to capture the light and composition at the right moment. Since we are not in studio, the timing has to be in the exact present moment. Carol is the right person. Her artistic mind fits to the needs of the moment, and she was available for that specific day

The magic mountain

Third you need the mountain with the nice road, the trees and the altitude to get snow. Semnoz mountain just near the home of BUGGY ROLLIN office, beside Annecy belongs to theses magic mountains with an easy access and Wonderfull panoramic.

Present is perfect

Fourth, you need fall colors with leaves still on the trees, first snow that does not melt straight away. And on the top of that, you need sunshine to put light on the fire of colors. This combination is maybe one day in the year. This day should be celebrated as much as easter, christmas or an equinox. These pictures are a blessing of that existing present.

Creating a multi dimensional star

When understanding the needs to achieve this pictures, very need can be consider as a line of possibility that have been focused on one point. Like a converging lasers beams it create a unit shining point like a star in the sky. A star that is full of intense happiness, a star that invite you to vibrate to the beauty together.

Promotion in China

Building the promotion in China.

Show duo of Chang Yue in GREEN-BLACK and ROLLERMAN in 9 DRAGONS suit

Since the beginning of April, Jean Yves Blondeau Joined Mr Gao Team in Beijing in order to make the Promotion of BUGGY ROLLIN and Rollerman in China.
First step was to meet Chang Yue in his home town.
We did several show. One in medicine university, and other ones at skater club.

Rollerman show at medicine school

Then we had show at Chang Yue skate club. And of course we could meet the young skaters and fans.

meet young fan

Later we took the road to Chengde, north east of Beijing where local skate association prepared a downhill + show program for us.
The first road was not very steep. So it was good enough to start training again after a long break.

But the road was busy with heavy loaded trucks. The heavy traffic is destroying the road. It is causing the pavement to burst out in waves. Rocks appears and id it impossible for skate to pass on. We must avoid it. Or we must stop and walk until pavement is good again.

First BUGGY ROLLIN race at Lishui, China.

Thanks to Freezy effort in BUGGY ROLLIN promotion, China organized the first official downhill BUGGY ROLLIN race at Lishui during their national championships.

First time in history : official BUGGY ROLLIN race in China.

One run trip.

Surprisedly , this national championship is only open to Chinese citizen. Even if Jean Yves made the trip to be there, because he is French, he was asked to start the last. And there would be no ranking for the competition itself. There was only Chinese ranking. We had only one run for the all day.
The race track has been shortened of a few hundred meters. We had no right to ride other roads by ourselves.

Starting the last then, the order of start decided by Freezy, as it should be at arrival. Freezy first, second his student Chi Heng Xin, third Xiao Long, and last Jean Yves. Freezy did a great pushing at start. But at the end of first corner, Jean Yves was already second. And after a few hundred meter more he was first. For the proud of China he waited for Freezy to come back first before the arrival line. From the beginning this was more a friendship agreed downhill than a real race. Good thing is that there was an official podium celebrating “rollerman” as a discipline.

The peculiarity of these rollerman at lemanik pictures, is that was the first time we extracted images from a 360 degrees camera. There is a strong sensation of speed with beautiful contrasts of light.

Daewha tunnel

Lost in korean mountains a small road is connecting two remotes valleys. On the top of the road is tunnel passing trough the rocky peak. This is a good place to make BUGGY ROLLIN practice.

The road is brand new. It is not very difficult to ride. The speed to reach is more than 90 km/h.

In the research of increasing difficulty, Jean Yves had attempt to start higher in the mountain on small muddy steep concrete path. That was piece of fun !
