Red Bull Mini Drome

with one comment

Yesterday the FGL crew went along to the Red Bull Mini Drome. Andy had already ridden the track before as he was testing it in Bremen recently so he could not actually enter the event. The whole crew got to have a play on the track but it was Oscar Khan, Chris Delia and myself that rode in the event. Both Oscar and Chris were riding trick bikes I was riding my track bike, Oscar was doing well until he went off course, Chris was one of the 32 people out of 107 that qualified. I also qualified right at the bottom at number 32…’ive never hoped someone would crash or ride slow so much before as I did watching the last 10 riders.

Chris got knocked out in the next round (by a girl). I was riding my trick bike for the pursuits and managed to win my first race against a lycra clad opponent, though was beaten in a close race in the next round. Im still happy I got through to the final 16.

I have to give a shout out and massive congratulations to Juliet Elliott who rides for charge who completely killed it on her new V2 Scissor! She set a rapid time, qualifying in 15th and set the standard for the rest of the race early on. Though unfortuanately got paired against Chris Akrigg in the pursuits read more about that here (Happy Birthday Juliet). Chris went on to win the event in kick ass style running people over along the way. Well done Chris!!!!

The whole day was heaps of fun, the peops from Red Bull put on a wicked event. There were loads of crashes, fast riders, and a great atmosphere.

Here’s a couple of vids of a few of us riding the minidrome (listen out for Oscar’s cheering).

Im sure some pics will emerge shortly.
