Tracy White: Thirty-year Blade Challenge
You’ve probably heard his name, you might already know of L.A. All Day, and you may have witnessed him on the mic at Bitter Cold Showdown. You may even be one of the lucky few to have visited the Tracy White Blade Museum or, most recently, run into him at a speed skating or inline marathon event. Tracy White is one of inline’s greatest ambassadors. The man is NONSTOP! There have been a ton of interviews and spotlights on him throughout his career, so let’s see if we can get a new prospective on him, and his story.
Tracy came on the scene during the year Nineteen Hundred and Ninety Four; the birth of our sport. Representing Bauer skates and Hardline clothing, he was best known for his ability to fly through the course with lightning speed. A few years later, he started his own grind plate company called 4-Dub. Twenty years have passed since then, and he continues to represent the inline skate industry with passion, dedication, tradition, and the ability to consistently motivate others. I am grateful to have been a part of his journey these past two decades and will do my best to ask the right questions and get the most out of an abundant source of inline knowledge. — Carlos Kessell
