WISH YOU WERE HERE – X GAMES BARCELONA SUNDAY 19TH

Today ended up being real interesting on a range of different levels. We’ve documented them quite well in this gallery so view and read on to be entertained and informed in equal measure!

Big thanks to X Games/ESPN for taking care of us all weekend we had a great time, it was non stop.

IMG_0588 Things kicked off early doors with the street final. Everyone rode real good it was awesome. But the course lacked a focal point, a rail down stairs perhaps? It was geared up for skate street league to the detriment of BMX. Either way shit got done and the riders were immense. Cheers lads.

IMG_0615 Alex Kennedy dropped a backwards crook to regular crook to 180 out this weekend!

IMG_0641 We stopped by Moto X best whip contest. It was crazy, the crowd loved it and no doubt TV land were blown away. Incredible entertainment.

IMG_0757 Bas Keep in the Mega Ramp finals tonight. I felt like a 13 year old watching this stuff it was so good.

IMG_2251DJ on the water hurting everyones ears all weekend.

IMG_2256 Trying to get a pint was getting harder by the hour. Always worth it in the end.

IMG_2271 Markus Wilke filming for Freedom in Germany. 12 years ago in the same city he was in front of the camera clinching a bronze medal.

IMG_7246 Garrett Reynolds wins another gold. He was in such good form today, a pleasure to watch in person.

IMG_7250 Thousands of people queuing up to be thoroughly let down by pseudo athletes in loud cars.

IMG_7251 The whole Rally X event was cancelled due to rain!!! To be fair Ken Block gave it a good go but everyone else spent more time shrugging their shoulders and kicking wet mud around while everyone watched from the stands.

IMG_7259 Dave Mirra hit the course like a lost pizza delivery guy. Here he is again, unable to get his vehicle in gear.

IMG_7262 The rescue truck got stuck in mud. Seriously, people spent their money to come and watch this stuff!! Such a disappointment. The organisers need a plan B here instead of PRO walking the venue. This thing was a disaster it sucked.

IMG_7264 Dudes just sweeping up water! If Top Gear get hold of this story someones GETTING SACKED IN THE MORNING….

 

Meanwhile in Britain, punters pay in to a venue and get entertained properly. Maybe keep this in mind next time rain halts play lads!!!
