Red Bull X-Fighters…a rather soggy weekend of Motocross
Everyone here at Pretty Green knows that the Red Bull X-Fighters is the best thing since, well, the invention of the Motocross bike, but this year 30,000 people joined us to see what all the fuss was about.
Team PG headed to Battersea Power Station to walk through puddles and rub shoulders with celebs such as Amir Khan and Calum Best (who arrived in true Best style with a lovely lady on each arm). After some host and boxer arm wrestling, it was time to check out the show — truly draw dropping stuff with Levi Sherwood being crowned champion and a satisfied (if slightly soggy) crowd headed home.
We, however, hit the after party to celebrate the day in true Red Bull Style, as well as bidding a fond farewell to Lex (Good luck down under! You will be sorely missed). Five minutes in – Mr Judd is on the dance floor strutting his stuff with a tight fitted t-shirted friend… Mandy has disappeared to somewhere we can only imagine was the bar and Nick finally managed to get hold of some free drinks vouchers… All was right with the world.
Looking at the sleepy faces on Monday morning, its safe to say team Pretty Green had an awesome weekend working hard and playing even harder. The highlight for Alex and Laura was clearly the motorbike that featured in the media area that they just couldn’t resist testing out… They didn’t want to put any riders to shame with their skills, so it stayed un-started…
