World Roller Games in Barcelona

It’s been some weeks since the World Roller Games were organized in Barcelona (Montjuïc-Passeig del Migdia). A huge competition that involved 11 modalities including downhill skateboarding, inline dh and streetluge.

Almost 300 riders and more than 40 nationalities fulfilled the tents and riders area where the environment was epic, country flags, hugs, laughs and happy faces, music…

The race track was a good surprise for everyone, riders and espectators. Technical lines with wide turns and high speed kept the riders together until the finish line, really tight runs.

The event organization and resources were something nerver seen in our sport, 5 minutes shuttles with minibus, profesional chrono system, tv screens with live timing and an amazing human team that took care to made all this posible.
