Is there a name for this trick?To me it looks like cable car  crazy 8's or merry go round.

When I first went to the last festival, I couldn't even boomerang, now I'm doing regenerations, corkscrews, and wirewalker variation tricks. You better bet that I got better! ;D.       But seriously does any one know the name to that trick?

Nice looking trick! I doubt it is named, I have not seen it done before: just one pass yes, but not the continuous version. So you could give it your own name.  It ilooks kind of the bearing version of Zorro, perhaps Rollerblade Zorro?  :P.  I suggest you name it something like Roadrunner or Run BMC!  ;D

oh my gosh, I wasnt expecting post like this!
I dont kow what to say... I was just expecting little post of some one telling me what the name of the trick was... Well, some thngs I want to say:

A new trick is named and it is called: The Roadrunner (angel voice)


Thank yu so much Neff for alowing me to name the trick. Is there a trick making club? :D I wont get ahead of myself with that though. ;D

I originaly found this trick with a jumbo, but was wait for the strummol8 to come in, and i didnt even know it was possible to do with a bearing top!

I swear I dint even kow Zorro existed! I just saw Neff do it in his freestyle and I thought it looked cool.

I doubt any one needs it, but I can post tutorials on it.

Oh ya and thanks ta0 for embedding them for me. I didnt
know how to do i :)

Here is a combo using Roadrunner (done by RunBMC himself). The Roadrunner itself is the trick in the first 10 seconds, and repeated towards the end. Fun trick.
