Welcome to a unique and exciting racing experience on the world’s first spinning ice race track! We’ve built an innovative ice carousel with a rotating race track in the center, offering a new and interesting challenge for racers.

In this video, we show you how we used chainsaws to carefully cut and shape the ice, creating the spinning ice track. You’ll see racers testing their skills and speed on the rotating surface, making for a fascinating winter activity. We also take you behind the scenes, giving you a closer look at the hard work and dedication that went into constructing the spinning ice track.

To capture the best views of the action, we’ve used drones for aerial footage, providing a different perspective on this remarkable racing experience. Join us as we explore this innovative ice carousel and the thrilling challenge of racing on a spinning ice track. We hope you enjoy this new and exciting adventure as much as we do!

The Rollerman Suit is Jean-Yves Blondeau’s own invention. It’s a suit of full-body armor, equipped with 32 wheels placed on the hands, feet, knees, torso, arms, and back. The suit gives the wearer the ability to roll on an part of his body, and especially downhill fast on their belly.

Jean-Yves created the suit as his final graduation project, when he was a student at an industrial design school in Paris in 1994.

He wanted to create something that didn’t yet exist, perhaps even something that filled gaps in gliding postures in sports, with a goal to enable the human body to move freely in all possible positions.

Jean-Yves said, he still makes these suits today, and it takes about 2 months to mould a complete set, and the suits sell for about $6,400 euro or about $6,760 US Dollars.

Now even though Jean-Yves is known as the Rollerman, and the suit would be best known as a rollersuit, wheel suit or rollerblade suit. The activity of using the suit, is referred to as body blading, roller suiting, and wheel suiting, but Jean-Yves coined his own term for using the suit, which he calls Buggyrollin.
