One of the most expected freeride downhill in Europe is the Lemanik freeride. Small winding road that begins in the forest and ends at the edge of the plain.
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. [unitegallery lemanik_18]
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.
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.
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.
Then we had show at Chang Yue skate club. And of course we could meet the young skaters and fans.
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.

BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2010 has nice races like Teolo. Teolo was the first time to get in downhill hair pins head first. It mean without hands for safety. Really head first. And it was great. Scary because there is no way to make emergency brake in this motion while proceeding a curve.
In TeoloKeynose, Jean Yves Blondeau comments the downhill. Key is for explanations. Jean Yves explains the track and you can see the progress of the technique of getting in curve with only one arm and them no arm at all as it happens.
There are two video of Almabtieb. One is short the other one shows the full road plus what happen on the side of the event.
the cooperation with nude group for the music is very nice. “During crossing the forest the road is so fast that i felt becoming like a bleu arrow” Jean Yves said.
The graveyard call BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2010 was made thinking to participate to a video contest “show your day”. That’s the reason why it is starting with preparing inside the car, the screws, and then the run .
Show in Haining was in China. It has been recorded by Sueb from Thailand. Thanks him we can have image of one of the numerous show made in china at that period.
Learning BUGGY ROLLIN on One day with Jean Yves Blondeau
This is the topic of the video “debutant first step How to BUGGY ROLLIN“. You can follow the step of an Asian Woman on alpin roads. And you will discover how fast Gilles get good at rollin in the slopes of Lausanne.
Here is the video gallery 2010
Nillor Yggub in Berlin
The last of BUGGY ROLLIN videos 2010 is a test of choreography with TATIANA WARNECKE in a fetish alien mood (for adult public).
For the Ones who do not Know Nillor Yggub he has a facebook page. He is a project of cooperation with Tatjana. He is the dark side of BUGGY ROLLIN. As much as Rollerman is nice and gentle, NilloR is free out of boundaries.
Freezy Zhao was invited to participate to largest Motocycle Festival in China with his BUGGY ROLLIN black armor. He could get the picture and gave us.
You must know that freezy loves selfies. When he was in France with Jean Yves Blondeau for practicing BUGGY ROLLIN he was making several decade of picture of him self by day. Freezy hair style was always perfect. The sun glaces always fitted. All the poses were sophisticated. We have to admit that it needs a creative mind to produce so many self portrait every day. All in all Freezy produces good pictures.
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.
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.
Level up together.
Go and make basic skill training, this is helping every one to feel comfortable in BUGGY ROLLIN wheel suits.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
