Jean Yves Blondeau atLeman Bleu French Swiss TV for interview. The set was very small. There were a few robotic camera in corners, a small table was taking all the room, one screen and two chairs at each side. But the program was nice, because the questions were very accurate. The journalist did prepare his question with precision. He also made link to national swiss hero Yves Rossy, that brang happiness to Jean Yves .
Keeping the connection with korea, is keeping good friends. Jean Yves Loves to go there. One of his biggest disappointment was not be able to be there for olympics games 2018. One of the skaters club is Yaban Doju club (Yaban soju after sport) the sunday afternoon in city park of Incheon. He loves to spend the sunday with friends rolling around, and then go to eat together.
Yaban Doju program
Usually the Yaban Doju afternoon start by a group warm up reached by a leader, then People start to put slalom, jumps, slides corridors, and teach to beginners. They also instant a camp where friends can find some drink and food. it is really like a family pick nic. This time Jean yves also Made entertaining show with BUGGY ROLLIN suit.

meet the missiles
This is the opportunity to meet people. Then we make picture with nice fan friends like the Missiles .Who are known for their show and their calendar of nude skate girls. They sell callendars in order to finance their travel to competition. But the group split few year ago, with the creation of Gossip skate. This one grow up a lot, with a site school in many specialities.
This event is attracting people from all around the world. Most of them are good skater. That the reasons why it is a good place to make the people try the BUGGY ROLLIN suits. Therefor, Jean Yves Blondeau is usually offering the first lesson. it makes the first steps in BUGGY ROLLIN more easy and more fun.
This is the second competition “Beton On Fire” of Rollerman at Altenberg Germany.
Altenberg is the last village on the mountain south of dresden before the lower plains of Czech republic. It used to be a place of miners making hole in the ground. Later it was the hidden place of head of east germain secret services. It has a cold swiss alpin climat propitious for winter sports like ski and sledge.
roots of variations
In the long period of cold war, sport was used as promoting for the communist regime. At this period they decided to build the best track of the world with all difficulties possible in order to perfectly prepare the athletes. that is one of the reason why the track of Altenberg is so interesting to practice.
This one is full length with 2009 on DAFT PUNK music from Tron. the runs of 2010 starts at 3;33 . there is the same end with dedicate for korean riders with Yvon Labarthe as korean language student and Jean Yves Blondeau as Korean Language teacher for testimony to his love for South Korea.

videos of chuncheon
The Chunchon event is very friendly, it is a tradition that all athlete share meals like big family.
After the event, Jean Yves could go freeride at one of the fastest road of South korea.
usually it is difficult to move the korean friends to technical fast tracks. But this time they agreed. Until they saw the road where they decided to not skate it. So Jean Yves made it alone. The good point is that the road ends in a dead end. So there is a very few traffic. The place is a wonder it has legendary fairy tale and magic temple lost in mountain.
The next video show a training for downhill with korean rider from extreme skater club
early in spring before the event at Chunchon. It is a typical Korean training place for downhill.
We wish that one day we can make downhill event at Chuncheon.
Back to the Graveyard call race near annecy, with blue suit now. That’s the place James Kelly tried the BUGGY ROLLIN suit. That was not easy, because the other skaters were laughing-kidding. Thus and as a good skater, but he was not a good student. James was refusing to hear what the master would say to help him. Maybe he was too proud ? Or maybe he had to protect his star status? It is difficult to start a new sport. Obviously the first steps must be done in private to be focused and at peace. He had the courage to go up against the easy jokes of his pairs. Thankfully, and have a nice word for the camera.
The armor was not treated with tenderness. Maybe he did not know the value in work of the things he used. It is always hard to see an armor that has demanded so many hours of work crushed on the floor.
Graveyard call videos
Skate house Media made a video of James Kelly finishing with images of jean Yves in Blue suit.
jean yves also made his own video of the Graveyard call day with split screen sequences. You can check the lines in the miror of the helmet visor.
rollerman @ Newton’s Nation expectations and discoveries

We got interviewed by local radio, Tv, and enjoyed Sydney with Yvon Labarth.

Like in a game
After a few days in Sydney, we went to mount panorama. The road is a circuit for car race very famous in Australia. It goes up and comes back down on the other side of the mountain. The floor quality is exceptional. With all the sponsors pantings on the security walls it make a graphic effect comparable to a video game.

Rollerman at Almabtrieb 2010 was nice. Among the classic longboard racing world, Almabtrieb is Germany’s capital race. Because it is the main event for german longboard world, it is well organized and a lot of athletes from all over the world go there. We were lucky with the weather.
a fast road profile.
The street start at the top of the hill with a dead end. The road is a little bit flat as slalom between the houses. Then it dives into the forest all along the side of the hill. This long straight make a huge acceleration. It ends by a left hair pin. And finishes before the bottom of valley.

use the time to try
First there is a week of freeride training and then the brackets of the world championships.
on the side of the road very one has to wait during the process of the race. So we have time to try something new. That is why Severine took the opportunity to wear the BUGGY ROLLIN suit.
What happen after the race is even more important. The camping becomes a huge Holliday camp and the main tent the party place.
