ONE Blade Awards [2014]

ONE Blade Awards [2014]

A new tradition continues with the 2014 ONE Blade Awards.

Once again we invited all of the content creators that contributed to ONE during the year to participate in a completely open nomination process to select the top three contenders for each category.

After those nominations were cast and tallied, the results were formatted into a new poll that allowed all participants to VOTE on the final outcome of each award.

With so many outstanding people and events contributing to the global bouillabaisse that is rollerblading circa 2014, these awards are a small token of respect from the community to those who keep our industry rolling into the future.

Please help us in congratulating all of this year’s nominees and winners. Cheers to you all.
