England!by catfishcatfish on 5-31-2011
I was home for less than 48 hours before I headed across the pond to the Nike Pool event. I'm sure youve seen all the videos by now but let me tell you..it was epic. They did it right. If you don't know what I am talking about seach Nike Pool. Kudos to Nike for once again putting on an unforgettable contest. I hung out in Liverpool with Watkinson for a few days after the Pool. I got to ride Rampworx finally!!! Super pumped to ride and hang with all the locals. Thanks to everyone from Rampworx and shout out to all the locals.
Wocko hooked up private sessions and my old ass rode every night. I also did fun stuff like this
That hurt. I also have no idea how my leg didn't break when I catapulted my frame.
Here is a rad little interview with a couple clips from Rampworx>
Here are some pics from merry old England.
Harry Main doing what Harry does. This was also a HUGE honor to ride. Its ROM skatepark. Close to (or maybe even over) 40 YEARS OLD. So much English BMX history went down here. Respect.
The pool. Chase Hawk.
So this was hilarious. One of the perks of announcing contests like the Pool is that I get to ride the course. One day i was was riding around for about a half an hour. I didn't have anything to drink so I rode a little more and decided to go up to the catering room and grab a drink. I'll be honest. I like orange juice. I've learned in other countries you can't really go with orange drinks. So i ran up the steps to get a refreshing drink and I come upon the setup you see above. Me being the orange liking man that I am grabbed a cup and filled it up with this "orange squash". The funny thing is that there was a woman watching me do this. I fill the cup and then proceed to pound the orange drink. The first gulp was good. The second gulp was not as pleasant. By the 5th and final gulp it was gasoline. Turns out it's CONCENTRATE. Everyone got a good laugh. Grandpa did not.
Fish and Chips. MMMM
