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.

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.
