Wish You Were Here – X Games Barcelona Thursday 16th

It’s been a long old day. 4am we kicked everything off with an uncomfortable flight from Leeds Bradford airport. The place sucks it was like a social club from the 1970’s. However, Barcelona is a breath of fresh air every time we’ve come to this awesome city over the years. Meeting up with Joe Rich and Robbie Morales was the highlight. I think I mentioned Road Fools 1 like 50 times! Hero moment for sure..
Here’s a quick pictorial of events. This weekend is off to be insane, we’ll keep you posted every step of the way.

 No inverts today punters. This thing is way too huge for this curb rider.

 I thought the pilot of my ropey flight earlier had landed the aircraft on this. He hadn’t, but it’s certainly large enough to do so.

 Crazy to think this whole set up is just temporary! It’s wood and foam underneath with a concrete skin.

 Street course looks so good. Could do with a decent sized rail down stairs though! Could be a talking point of the weekend for sure.

 Day 1 looks like this. Expect these seats to be filled with frenzied young girls, sports Dad’s and chain wallets come the weekend.

 Bas Keep took to the Mega Ramp with ease. Gotta be so scary the first time dropping in on this beast.

 Bas again looking dwarfed but certainly giving the ramp a run for it’s money. Stoked he’s here riding this.

 Either way, no one will ever get higher than Mat Hoffman. Mega Ramp or not…

 This machine recently took home x2 X Games gold medals. Is another haul expected in Barcelona?

 Paul Ryan was the first UK rider we met up with today. He’s gonna have a good one this weekend, mark my words..

 Smiles all round when Robbie is in town.

 We’re expecting something special this weekend. Chad kerley, Simone Barraco and Chase Hawk.
