Hey guys, late August I was riding Mexico Vans Bmx Pro Cup, it was so much fun, I placed in 6th place , pretty stoked as I gave it my all and had a awesome week with the Squad.
I have been in London the past Week at the battle of Hastings contest, day 1 we won the Video contest (2 of 4 team members get picked to film for 60 mins locked in the Plaza room of source park) – My self and Garret Reynolds rode this. I took a gnarly crash during filming (fell 5ft flat onto my back) but luckily I was able to get back up and keep going… The next day was qualifying, I couldn’t even get out of bed but some how ended up toughing it out (ice bathed it) and ended up riding both qaulyfying then finals the next day !!!! Was a blessing.
Our team qualified 1st on saturday and finished in 2nd place finals in Sunday. My team was stacked full of heavy hitters, Dennis Enarson, Garret Reynolds & Chad Kerley – I had the an amazing week riding this event surrounded by good energy.
I have just spent 3 days with my lady in London after the contest. Was fun times being a tourist
I’m currently flying to Malaga now for the final stop of the Vans Bmx pro cup, super keen for this !!! Going to take the weekend off and rest up to recover for the fun times ahead.
My girlfriend has flown home now looking forward to an amazing week with my friends in Malaga and then returning home to Brisbane later this month.
