The Bitter Cold Showdown started in 2001 at Blindside Sports in Elkhart, IN as a small rollerblading video premiere, contest and trade show. It has grown to become one of the largest gatherings in the world for the rollerblading community. Our goals since the beginning was to develop an event that was self-sustained by its sponsors and allowed everyone attending access to all activities. Currently, the trade show pays for all costs surrounding the event, which allows 100% of admissions to be used as prize money. In 2009, 264 rollerbladers competed for the Bitter Cold Showdown title.
Pony Cup is a 6 year old annual skatepark competition in Nykøbing Falster, Denmark. It is one of the largest and most popular rollerblade events in scandinavia. With a newly renovated skatepark, there are plenty of new lines and opportunities for a great day.
