The Beijing team of Micro Skate invited Jean Yves Blondeau to perform on kids event at Xi An 2015.
On the margin of the event, Jean Yves had the opportunity to visit the terra-cotta warriors. More interesting was to try to go on the mountain roads. Jean Yves found a street on google map that was not connected to the road network at the foot of the mountain. This place was very interesting to roll in BUGGY ROLLIN.

Press 2015 ; BVR bank advertising made in south Africa featuring Rollerman Jean Yves Blondeau.
South african pass.
The shooting of the BVR Bank advertising took part in Toitskloof pass near Cape town in South Africa. One more time choosing the road was a fight for good floor quality. We know this road because we already made video for buggy rollin at this place. But the surface was very poor, and made a lot of vibration.
In the mind of the nice director, all the pictures were like jet plane views with the noise and travellings. We could shoot in only one day. And came back home without injury.
2015 Jean Yves made 2 advertising , first was Skoda in China second was BVR bank for Germany.

Jean Yves Blondeau made an advertising of VolksWagen group Skoda in China as main actor. The concept is crossing over disciplines. A rally car driver, a super mountain bike pilot and Jean Yves Blondeau as Rollerman in black tiger and dragon BUGGY ROLLIN wheel suit are racing down a mountain. They are not only racing but playing interact and build complicity together through their own way of expression. For example Rollerman is holding the hand of the driver of the car to get speed. Rollerman is pushing the bonnet of the car to set the pace. Together with the car they draw trajectory line on the road that looks like a dialogue between two characters.
The advertising won a price of best commercial film in china for 2015.

Rider man and rollerman at the Shanghai Show 2015 open freestyle competition.
Shanghai Show 2015 history
Luckily, Riderman was invited with Rollerman to make synchronized show at Shanghai Show 2015 open freestyle competition.
The choreography was prepared in France on the theme of the medieval jousting to remember the knights who are the ancestors in armor. The knights are facing each other from part to the other of the stage and they run against each other. They do not hit each other. It is not a fight to destroy the other one but something to construct together coherent motions where synchronicity and precision plays a big role.
In conclusion, this was also the first time for Christophe to come to China.
For the third time of BUGGY ROLIN in Lishui Hebei China, Riderman could come with Jean Yves Blondeau to make show. But the first thing to do is to meet the good friends. We met RRRRRUBY Shen and Daisy Vincent William. All the gentle friends that we met years before. Interesting to see with the time the destiny of every one is changing from student to busy life. Ruby is now a teacher, she is married and mummy. Daisy is working in another city but she makes effort to come to visit and help us in Lishui.
On the side of event, thanks to Daisy and Vincent, we could explore some mountain road and make downhill with Riderman and Rollerman in BUGGY ROLLIN suit.

Making show on carpet is no good for a good choreography. the wheels are not rolling the motions are slow.
Jean Yves Blondeau has became spokesperson for the Meilang Meidong rollerblading club in Beijing in march. He had to make a presentation at the annual Micro Skate meeting for China. He also did a choreography show on stage. But it was difficult to perform precise motion because of the deep red the carpet on the floor of the stage. Every motion were also slowed down. that makes difficult to catch up with the music.
Anyhow It was a big show, held in a big palace in the suburbs of Beijing. As conclusion, everyone received the same uniform and took a picture with all the participants. This is where Jean yves met Xiao Qing who will be part of BUGGY ROLLIN’s team in China.
There was a group of dancers who lent themselves to the photo set staged with Rollerman.
