Riding a wave of success after the release of his pro model skate on Seba late last year, Australia’s own CJ Wellsmore is the undisputed No.1 of the competition rollerblading scene in 2014 after another huge win against some of the world’s top skaters.
Created by rollerblading icon Jon Julio, The Blading Cup is regarded as one of the world’s premier competitions and features an epic course designed for and by bladers, with a big focus on the creativity and amplitude only our sport can achieve.
Here is what CJ Wellsmore had to say after the win on the day: “What an incredible feeling it is to win The Blading Cup! Today with the amazing atmosphere we had, Everyone put there body on the line to feel the beautiful joy that inline skating brings to all of us. Thankyou for all the support! Fucking love it.”
CJ took the top spot ahead of France’s Julien Cudot in second, the USA’s Dave Sizemore in third and Belgium’s Anthony Pottier in fourth. It was a great result for CJ’s boot sponsor SEBA, with their team riders taking out first and fourth.
