Stiff competition from close friend and recent FISE winner Joe Atkinson and boy wonder Nicolas Servy meant that CJ didn’t make it three years in a row in the top spot, but he put in a mighty showing none-the-less.

Congrats to CJ and all the winners!

Rollerblading is always an integral part of the extreme sport section of the event, with always a huge turn-out from some of the world’s best skaters.

Last year, Sydney’s Josh Nielsen managed to make his way to the event. While it’s a little late, an edit from Thisissoul has just popped up featuring Mr Nielsen shredding the park alongside names like Montre Livingston, Dave Lang, Dominik Wagner, Scott Quinn, Eito Yasutoko, Jeremy Suarez, Maxime Genoud, Richie Eisler and more.

Roskilde returns for another big year from June 27-July 4.
