This year the Classic Rollin contest took place in a brand new skatepark in Rosemont. The Classic always means good times, and it was a good time once again as usual. A lot of people came to watch and skate. It reminded me of the good ol contests back in the days, where everybody were skating all together, whatever who you are, what’s your level or your ethnicity. Which is what skateboarding is all about.
