This past weekend has been pretty hectic, got a call from a monster truck world tour company asking if I wanted to do a show for a freestyle mania event. We had to go and practice our 'choreography' at 9am on the Friday, which turned out very tiring after getting in from work at 6am that morning lol!
We got there and no one had a clue how to set the jump-box up, which had come from Belgium, so me and Zack tried setting it up but we aren't very good at that sort of stuff haha, then two Belgian riders turned up and made it look pretty easy! The pic below was before we set the ramp up and you can see some of the landing infront of me.
So we got riding at about mid-day for a little practice and warm up with everybody. After about an hour we got called to have lunch, which turned out so nice! The people who cooked it all were the same caterers for Lady Gaga, Beyonce etc haha so it was proper nice!! After all that, we got back riding again but we had to practice our whole routine with the FMX, quad and street super-bike riders. Our box was set up in between the FMX ramp so we had FMX and quad riders tricking over the top of us as we jumped!
On the saturday we had to do two shows and sunday it was just the one. On both mornings we had to do a 'pit party' autograph signing session which was funny as we'd never done anything like that before. There were loads of people getting pictures with us and wanting things signed.
The weekend was sick and we met loads of new people from America and Belgium etc and we should be doing more shows soon!
