Matt Caratelli’s new edit with from the Newport P-rail Invitational 2015 in Melbourne

Newport P-Rail Trophy

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://vimeo.com/148306394″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Tom Scofield has added another impressive notch to his belt by taking out the 3rd Annual Newport P-Rail Invitational on December 6 in Melbourne.

Held at Newport Skatepark, the day featured 21 of Melbourne’s best bladers battling it out for the title in what was he most intense competition yet.

This years NPI featured the massive A-frame box for Round 3 as well as the well known flat box that Melbourne rollerblading drags out to every event.

The format of the competition was as follows:

Head-to-head knockout each round
Different spot each round
Last blader standing wins
Crowd decides on winner
Votes will be counted for seemingly tied rounds/final round

• Round 1 = 3 min
• Round 2 = 4 min
• Round 3 = 5 min
• Final round = 6+ min[/vc_column_text][mk_image src=”http://www.rollerblading.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/tom-scofield1.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”450″ crop=”false” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”25″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]The contest featured many close match ups, along with just as many injuries, calling for four wildcards to be featured in Round 2.

Taking the best injury, killing it all day was Andy Plumridge who suffered a bad wrist break sending him straight to the hospital.

The final round brought about some of the most incredible blading that Melbourne has seen all year: Hayden Golder Vs. Martin Gade Vs. Tom Scofield!

In the end, the Kiwi import came out on top, taking home the title, trophy and $103.20 in prize money.

Big ups to Matt Caratelli for hosting the competition with the massive help from Jean-Claude “JC” White, who brought all the boxes.

Shout outs also to Kev San Jose and Brad Watson for filming all day and Diego for taking photos – stay tuned for more action from the NPI soon.

Veteran skater Paul Wicke (36) celebrates 10 years of rollerblading in Canberra

Paul Wicke Canberra

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://vimeo.com/132626067″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Canberra veteran Paul Wicke has just dropped an amazing new edit featuring 10 years of skating in Australia’s capital city.

Unfortunately it’s not all reason to celebrate, with the edit prompted by a severe injury to 36-year-old’s knee a few months back, meaning he may never be able to skate again.

Here is what Paul had to say: “After severely injuring my knee a few months back and being uncertain if I could/would skate again, I decided to put together some clips from my time skating in Canberra since moving here 10 years ago. Hopefully ill be able to add to it again in the future as the mind is still willing. I just have to wait for the body to catch back up again.”

Featuring hammer after hammer from the days of baggy jeans right through to now, we definitely hope this isn’t the last the world of rollerblading has seen from Paul Wicke.

Good luck with your recovery Paul, we hope to see you on the roll again!
