Madrid 2010 Part One

Madrid is starting to feel some time ago now. Its a city I definitely fell in love with and would love to go back to. Even though we had some pretty major delays getting there, and at one point I did think that we were going to have to give up and miss the Red Bull was worth it in the end.

Thankfully we made it and even had time to change before we went to the event. For those of you who do not know what its all about....they call it 'Motorcross Gymnastics' where the riders have to perform tricks with their bikes whilst in the air!!! I know crazy!! But very entertaining. The tricks are named things like, The Stripper, Dead Body, Cordoba, Nic Nac.....even the names are crazy. This is a photo of the main entrance to the Plaza Del Toros in Las Ventas, beautiful building and absolutely ginormous!!!

Inside there were about 25,000 spectators inside and boy did they know how to show their support to the riders!! We went to London last year and the atmosphere was no where near what it was like in Madrid. It was so exciting and I lost count how many times we did the Mexican Wave :D

Sponsored by Red bull it was a fantastic show. Lots of other entertaining segments too, a sand buggy, matadors, flamenco dancers, bmx was f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c!!!!

This was me before the show with my bandanna in my was waved around lots during the night. Cant wait to go to London on the 14th and watch it all again. Go Levis Sherwood!!!!

I have lots of photos of our trip and I've selected just a small few ;) to show you tomorrow, Oh and to tell you my BIG NEWS!!
