20 years BUGGY ROLLIN videos of 2014

20 years BUGGY ROLLIN videos of 2014

the years 2014 was the twentieth anniversary of creation of buggy rollin.

20 Years BUGGY ROLLIN to celebrate.

Already 20 Years BUGGY ROLLIN. In order to celebrate this anniversary, We decided to take several action.

  1. Get together.

    Meet each other is important to feed friendship and share great times. We also share very simple things of life, eating together, traveling together, being in situation together. Even if we are on the same place at the same moment , every one get his own point of view, and his own memory about it. At the end it build a time line of life shared like a chorus, where every experience twisted in each other is making like a corde or cable. Significantly, it is all about making link, to each other, as many as possible, as strong as possible. Jean Yves truly thinks that is a real meaning of intelligence.

  2. Level up together.

    Go and make basic skill training, this is helping every one to feel comfortable in BUGGY ROLLIN wheel suits.

  3. Hit the mountain roads.

    Because BUGGY ROLLIN at its best is to go on big mountain roads, going fast in slopes, piloting lines like jet fighters, it is good to practice together on mountain pass roads. It is a good way to check the weak point of each one and get it better. Also to check the skills of each that can be shared that every one gets better.

  4. Go bob track.

    Additionally to pure road downhill, the Bob Track is greater in sensations. Its rarity make it highly valuable. Ultimately to get the opportunity to have free training in a bob track is an enormous chance, and the best way to celebrate progress.

  5. City stroll.

    After all, rolling in the very narrow corridors of middle aged historical city of Chambery , not only give pleasure of practicing BUGGY ROLLIN in a nice place, but also make sense in making time loop. Chambers was the first city where BUGGY ROLLIN video was made. So it is about celebrate the beggining of BUGGY ROLLIN. Furthermore, By rolling in the very old street we make link and build a bridge to historical usage of armors fo middle age. That is to say that we make a kind of time travel like a pilgrimage in deep roots of BUGGY ROLLIN.

2014 was also an active year with a lot of events

La Plagne Force 4

The Plagne Beton on Fire 2014 was an opportunity to gather four armor together in the track for a competition for the first time. It was because of the effort made to rally the BUGGY ROLLIN pilots for the 20 years of its creation, that the athletes were ready to compete. We had permission to train, and we could find ourselves calmly.
So there was: Riderman France, Sebastien Bertholet Otaku Rollin, Anthony Finocchiaro Finch, and Rollerman Jean Yves Blondeau.

Chunchon korea 2014 Rollerman @ opening ceremony.

Jean Yves Blondeau , the Rolleman, was invited to make show for opening ceremony at Chunchon korea 2014. It was a big competition of many sports. Rollerman was here to make the competition valuable.
Much of the event is devoted to the discovery of sport, with many activities open to the public and free. Unfortunately the event only takes place every two years.

Downhill In Lishui

The downhill competition took place on the mountain near Lishui. There was still a long downhill from competition place to the city center. So Jean Yves decided to use this road for his own freeride downhill and made several videos between pedestrians, bicycle, motorbikes, scooters, trikes, buses, trucks and a ambulance that did not wanted to be overtaken.

DUBI freeride rodeo.

We were bored at night in Altenberg after the BOB track. Jean Yves knew the old road from Dresden to Prague. Just after the German border, there is a big descent to Dubi. so we decided to go DUBI freeride. It has 7% average slope, 5 kilometers, of which part on three lanes. Initially, it was a very busy route. But since the highway is open, it’s a deserted road that bears the marks of heavy traffic. We crossed two cars and a tractor.


The problem is that Anthony started in BUGY ROLLIN. So Jean Yves decided to redo the descent that is made to be once. It’s like a motorist to the police. At the crossing to the post office and pay a fine. We were not proud.

Fairy tale track 2014 lost treasure.

Fairy tale track 2014 is about hidden track lost in the forest. It is hard to find. No big road, no sign, no construction. The track is partly made of wood and partly concrete. It has not cooling system. It literally runs between the wild trees, and it is about 1m in the air. So it gives the impression of flying over the ferns.

ALTENBERG 2014 Beton on fire

It was a great weather in Altenberg 2014. For the first time, we had three armored athletes engaged in the race. There was Otaku Rollin from Switzerland, Anthony Finchfrom Spain, and Jean Yves Blondeau from somewhere in the Universe. It was the first time that we could record the sleeves of each participant to see in the videos. in the evening we were able to train in the gym. Another night, instead of staying at home, we went for a free run in the neighboring village of Czechia. But this is a next article.

BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2013

BUGGY ROLLIN 2013 videos show reel

First version of the Show reel, which is the video presentation of the best videos BUGGY ROLLIN 2013 and before, the most beautiful images ever made in BUGGY ROLLIN and BUGGY SKI.

Filming in Etna

A nice flight to get to the foot of Etna. Jean Yves Blondeau, Rollerman, come to shoot a show for Nissan The Quest with Antonio Rossi, Jury Chichi, on the slopes of the Italian volcano with his armor BUGGY ROLLIN blue. this is the second BUGGY ROLLIN 2013 videos

First dark evening

There was no Nissan vehicle to climb the roads of the volcano but a mini bus full to crack with all the film crew plus the equipment. Already on the first night, under the stormy clouds and the slopes slammed by the free and crazy wind, we do interviews before the dark clouds finally fall on us with the conspiratorial night.

The light back

The next day is a virgin morning, the naive morning light invites us to rush up the road in the vehicle too full.

Attention artists

Very quickly the talents express themselves, a soundman who has stories full of his magneto, fades of the image, who continue to take pictures even when there is more action, and a cameraman in the cigar who never quits his limp has slowed down with a goal of another century. The splendid sun cuts silhouettes against the black background of volcanic stones. The rock is dry even after the rain. This rock scratches the skin and emits a particular complaint when it runs.


videos BUGGY ROLLIN 2013

etna’s explosion life

Until the end of the batteries

We can see the road that disappeared several times under the eruptions. We film from morning to night. We have a break too late to eat on the volcano, hungry stomach, no longer provides the energy to think well and move well. But a dish of legendary pasta lifts the spirits and energy for the last catch reborn.

Blood and Azure in slow motion

Then the last rays turn the slopes into an incandescent red that contrasts with the deep blue of the sky. It will be one of the best movies, with a plethora of almost orgasmic slow motion. Herbs can be seen bending in the turbulence of the armor’s whiplash. Pine cones twirl and bounce in twisted salto. The wheels bounce while grating the roughness of the asphalt road. Rollerman’s armor slips down as you glide down the curves of the laces. You can see all the wheels in action, playing the score of a symphony worn on the lines of the turns between the metal rails.

The return of the BUGGY SKI in Europe

Finally the BUGGY SKI is back from Asia after 4 years of disappearance in Asia. The apparition is the plagne. A small explanatory video shot with JYM de la Plagne presents the ski armor in French.

2013 BUGGY ROLLIN World Videos

During the year, Rollerman gave interviews to multiple TV channels. Here are France 3, Channel one Russia, and a francophone Swiss TV.

videos BUGGY ROLLIN 2012


Putting journalists in the BUGGY ROLLIN armor is not enough to get a good show. Journalists should be looked after as apprentices of BUGGY ROLLIN. That’s what we did for Natalia from Russia. But also for Maeva, Cedric and Christian who were not journalists. Put in trust, explain the basics, correct, encourage, play and maintain the flame.

BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2012

BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2012 had major events.

First World Speed Record 126kmh video.

We made the speed record synchronized with Stern TV show. That was the highlight of the show. We went very early in the morning as every one is sleeping to prepare the runs. We did it with the firsts rays of sun. We used a mix of Golden BUGGY ROLLIN suit and Blue Aramis because of secret technical reasons. It was scary and not easy. Peaceful mind control is one of the key to success.

Speed Games film.

Danny Strasser film maker, Franck Bonnefoy legendary downhill long boarder, and Jean Yves Blondeau, the Rollerman, went together on a road trip in the alps at the quest of some perfect downhill. One of the results is a very nice video with beautiful red sun nice green mountain forests on endless roads. we can see many time the long boarder pushing on the body of Jean Yves in order to gain speed. That was because the BUGGY ROLLIN suit was more dynamic and had to wait for the longboard in order to stay together in front of the camera.

BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2009.  After return from a glory making hollywood movie, That spring was hell of stress. First it was a bell palsy. Promptly healed thanks of Ch K A. Then JM Lenorcy bankrupted Jean Yves. So much stress in the mind that it was impossible to compute the risks on the koeningsee bob track. So Jean Yves hit the wall with his head at 90kmh + . Recover again. Stand back. And keep on fighting for BUGGY ROLLIN.

So great to roll this track. This time, Jean Yves takes time to explain every technical points for a safe ride. And he uses the orange suit of Jim Carrey on many occasions that year. So nice BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2009 produced. Of course the other runs on the races are nice too.

Finding peace

BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2009In the movie ZEN the 4 elements of ride. The master is looking for peace rooted in the 4 elements of nature. Meditation connects with the conscience of living elements. Each of these elements are transcendent in the practice of BUGGY ROLLIN.
This unperfected movie is a part of BUGGY ROLLIN testimony. It could find its success by men who were already on the inside path.

It echoes discipline and work of traditional martial arts without the warrior foundation. It is a deep anchor in serene peace that has absolute necessity to grow all humankind up.

BUGGY ROLLIN Videos 2008

A year of challenges

For BUGGY ROLLIN Videos 2008, we prepared the movie for Jim Carrey YesMan. It was like a marathon, and very interesting to work in big movie studios.
Interesting because this was a complete new world for Jean Yves. He had to be Designer, product manager, costume designer, special effect maker, stunt trainer, stunt choreographer, stunt double, location scout approver in the same days. It was also interesting because Jim Carrey always took good care of him.

During the summer we had a trip near Brandon with Nicolas Bonnefoy, and Danny Strasser, and we made the film “speed warriors”  together. If Danny is famous for making beautiful films, he is always looking for the best shot possible. In the pursuit of perfection, time is not counting. You must think that for every shot of their film we spent one hour of preparation. In the result of a few second picture with golden sunshine and beautiful shadows on the surface of asphalt, there ia a lot of care. We hope that you will take time to enjoy the videos.

During this trip,  we could try  the Cesanna Torinese Bob Track. this was the second time in the track for Nick and Jean Yves, but the first time with good camera shot.

In spring we had a challenge for gallileo Tv germany with Martin Siegrist in Almambtrieb, and another one in Japan against a rock star on motorbike.

2007 rising BUGGY SKI in South Korea

Going to snow resort

Rollerman 2007 in Korea, was so special. Jean Yves Blondeau was living at in a studio at MUJU Resort shared with guests and all the tools for building and repair BUGGY ROLLIN and BUGGY SKI. The opportunity to BUGGY SKI every day showed all the weak points of the prototype. Step by step every problem would be solved. Finally Jean Yves obtained a sustainable Ski Armor.

Getting better

Among the trouble shoot, snow infiltration, ski geometry, chest positioning, climat control, connectors strength.
Side benefit was to become very fit and get very balanced body because of the really well balanced effort through the BUGGY SKI.

[unitegallery BUGGY_SKI_Korea_V_07]

High 1 best choice

During the winter we moved from Muju resort to High 1 Gangwon Do. Muju is a ski resort from the 80s that had to face bankrupt owners. It had to run on the existing equipments. The machine were old, so the snow was not perfectly prepared, and people would wait almost one hour at the lift on sundays. But the workers were really putting a lot of energy to gently welcome the skiers. Muju was also at a very strategic geographic situation the only ski resort of the half south of korea. It had no problem to get clients.

High 1 was a brand new ski resort. It is situated in a remote area where the employment rate is very low. They organized special trains directly from seoul to the ski resort to bring customers. Our video shows that train, and all the events organized inside. It shows a mutation from BUGGY ROLLIN to BUGGY SKI.

Suddenly all business stopped in South Korea. Business friends moved, phone number changed every things was over. Back to Europe have to start every thing again.

An amazing year of creations 2006

The saddest year of the decennia (lost of Chae Sun) was also the year that saw masterpieces born : Jean Yves Blondeau’s creations 2006.
In the field of pure creation, the BUGGY SKI suit had been successfully functionally developed. It was a designer enthusiastic run through the difficulties finding step by step simplified efficient solutions. It went like this :

  • stuck on trouble
  • find solution by head
  • check available material
  • build a solution
  • test in real on mountain slopes
  • go next level

In Video the work with Danny Strasser near Andermatt produced maybe the best video of BUGGY ROLLIN ever : SWISSPASS. In this video, we speak about emotion, dreams, and respect against the beauty of mountains, and never forget to keep a child heart. A very few people could understand the messages.
We also had a Wonderfull work with Christophe Lebedinsky in winter for BUGGY SKI and summer in the alps.

Small Busan productions

After passing the big wave of Megapass, we had no more big promotion contracts.
We made a few fun advertising, and some aesthetic videos like Igidae that did not catch success.
We also prepared the winter in Muju Resort by producing advertising for the resort with Yvon Labarthe. And that was going to be a great winter for BUGGY SKI
