WISH YOU WERE HERE – X GAMES BARCELONA SATURDAY 18TH

Today was all about the BMX park final which went off. Gary Young took the gold and rightly so. It’s incredible just how long he’s been killing it and still he’s on hand to clear up at X Games. Congrats dude.. Here’s a quick rundown of events.

IMG_0481 T Shirt of the day for sure. It’s saying “Russian Doll of BMX” I’m layered, come and un wrap me. Or something??

IMG_0497 If it’s put there on a plate, I’m going to take it. Red Bull VIP lounge, free beer and nibbles.

IMG_0532 Beddows on the deck trying to score THAT perfect shot…

IMG_7238 THAT perfect shot of Morgan Wade by Nathan Beddows. Mind = blown.

IMG_0545 We stopped by the Freestyle Moto X event, it’s pretty clear to see that these guys have taken the WOW factor from BMX dirt. While this stuff is happening I’m not sure BMX dirt contests stand a chance. This is just way too epic for the general public, they loved it.

IMG_0556 Gunner trying to keep a low profile. Obviously this has failed as I just internetted him.

IMG_0562 The showmen rev around the track like peacocks looking for instant intercourse. To be fair they were unreal. The BMX world somehow needs to use this to their advantage when selling complete bikes to little kids. Not sure how this can be achieved, if I had the answers I’d be a millionaire, ish…

IMG_7228 Not a pen in sight at a BMX jam of this calibre.

IMG_7230 The Red Bull portable sky scraper offered up some incredible views of the park course during the finals. I kinda missed everything as I was eating all their great food and drinking lots of their delicious free beer. You can take the lad out of BMX but….

IMG_7233 What I did watch though was Gary Young clinching an X Games gold medal. He was awesome, such a great ambassador for BMX. Love him.

IMG_7241 Dig Mag’s Fred Murray kept us company in the media lounge today. Did you know Fred has NEVER had a cup of tea. Let me repeat that. Fred Murray has NEVER had a cup of tea. Someone seriously needs to get the kettle on, the poor lad much be parched.
