Jean-Yves Blondeau Becomes Latest Daredevil To Conquer Hunan’s Mt. Tianmen
Frenchman Jean-Yves Blondeau is known as “Rollerman” because of his custom-designed suit equipped with 31 skateboard wheels, ensuring he always rolls — standing, crouching, prostrate — wherever there’s a hill. But why roll down hills when the world offers mountains? Specifically, Mt. Tianmen, one of the most scenic places in China, featuring a stretch of road — which Alicia wrote about in April — with 99 turns to symbolize Heaven’s nine palaces.
Jokke Sommer, wingsuit daredevil, flew over Mt. Tianmen earlier this year, and now someone has rolled down it. Rappel daredevils: you’re up. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
