My 2014: Montre Livingston

2014 has been a good one. New products got released, people traveled from all over the world to visit some of the great events out there, awesome videos and edits came out and the vibe has been great in general. But of course, everyone’s got their personal favorites and we wanted to know how 2014 looked like for some of our favorite pro riders.

Montre Livingston’s 2014 couldn’t have turned out much better. He started the year with his banger Create Originals section; he traveled the world, won competitions, taught kids about blading and life during the Gypsy Camps in Belgium, Scotland & Sweden, and the end of his 2014 season got celebrated with his USD pro model being released. Let’s hear a bit more about his year.

Cities in 2014:
To be honest, there is no way I can re-cap all of the different cities I’ve visited in 2014 but, I can tell you this, it was a lot hahahaa.

Countries in 2014:
Pretty much all of Europe, Africa was in there, and the UK. Hahahaa I gotta keep track of these things hahhaa.

Injuries in 2014:
I got hit and ran over by a small pickup truck while riding my bike. The driver never stopped even after the initial hit. He actually proceeded to speed up and run me completely over. I tryed to get up and run after him but, after ten to fifteen feet I collapsed in pain. As a result, I had a broken foot, destroyed bike and an evil temper that no man or god wanted to mess with.

Any specific moment or experience that stood out in 2014?
Every year, Roskilde festival blows me away with the music, people, parties, art, food, contest, and randomness. For sure, even though most of it is hard to remember what day was which, it’s still the most epic time.

What was your worst moment in 2014?
Getting hit by the truck and not being able to find the person that did it.

Is there such thing as the best day in 2014?
Ummm, I’m still alive, my kid is happy, my dog is happy, I gotta place to live, some blades to ride and frames and wheels to put on ’em. I’d say that every day was the best one.

Best in 2014…
