For the month of September we've teamed up with the TruSpin Podcast to bring you this unique Q&A with the legendary Dave Paine.

Last year, Nitro Circus announced their latest venture, Nitro World Games, a three-hour extreme sports extravaganza that will take place at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 16 and will be shown live on NBC. The official statement advised that “every athlete in the world will be eligible to compete” by qualifying at the Nitro Circus Academy of Excellence at Woodward West in California or Travis Pastrana’s Pastranaland in Maryland. The exciting part for rollerblading is inline best trick contest will be one of the events taking place on the 15 ramps that make up the course. It would seem that Chris Haffey and Wake Schepman’s performances on the Nitro Circus World Tour has helped gain blading an inclusion in what is sure to be a highly publicized, and watched, event.

Sitting in on the interview were Wes Driver, Corey Casey, and Adam Johnson. So much time and blade history has come and gone in the intervening years that the information and opinions Alex (and AJ) share in this discussion have both been incorporated into blading’s underlying psyche while also being lost in our collective memories. But that’s what makes #ThrowbackThursday so fun, because it’s a great chance to dig up old content like this and share with audiences that may have never seen it before.
