“It’s a moving, drunk, street fest/party of rollerbladers and it’s the best collection of people I think that probably exists anywhere.” — Brandon Lorenzo
Chicago, Illinois — July 17th, 2021.Year twenty! WOW! The riot is known for it’s big prize pot and this year was no surprise as first place took home 3K! Four skate locations with some unique approaches like setting up a wooden box to a square handrail or just gaping onto a kinked down ledge. The skating was entertaining and the crowd, as usual, was full of life. We got kicked out of the final spot but as the campus police were there, the show ended with a banger that was later awarded with a best trick prize. Another great year at the riot and another win for the Chicago scene. Cheers!
