Wish You Were Here – X Games Munich Friday 28th

Day 2 and we’ve finally got some better weather going on here in Munich. Remember there’s no street here too! so all the usual faces are not in attendence, it feels way quieter than Barca. Here’s what’s been going down today anyway, check it..

We stumbled across another new sport today. HEADIS is essentially table tennis, using a small football and your cranium as a bat. How this shit gets the funding is beyond me, how this was even invented is again puzzling. If my child came home with a really red forehead all sweaty, with a HEADIS logo shirt on and told me it’d been “playing Headis all day” I would ground them immediately. Some times a line needs to be drawn on wacky pastimes and it should start here.

Kriss Kyle fixing a punny. Those caramel tyres have really let him down today!

Is it only a matter of time before we see scooters at X Games? Who knows…


Morgan Wade coming in to land at X Games Munich. Great view today from Mega Ramp.

The food here looks like it’s been sat out for a month. Green bread was the order of the day. This looks like something from out of space, and actually tasted like it too. Thick, soggy with bright green sponge casing. Utterly rank.

Huge crowd for the Mega Ramp final today. Well regimented gate staff meant there was minimal sneaking in.

Plenty of GoPro vests going down. Still unsure why? perhaps to help eliminate spillage from all the sausage and chips which are being consumed here.

Remember yesterday when I said I’d feel bad for the guy who had to fish skateboards out of the pond. Well here he is. To be fair though, no shirt, water resist overalls and sunglasses make him look a class act so it wasn’t all bad.

Heres the skateboard arena. No BMX event in Munich on this course. Which is probably not a bad thing because the place looks too low with no banger feature going on. In Barca BMX needed something else on the course to make it really good, same here I guess.
