When I was at Bike Days in Switzerland one month ago I was invited to also to judge Round 2 of the 2015 World Circuit in Barcelona. BCN is one of my favourite cities in the world, that hold many memories from when I competed in the Euro XGames and so on so it’s pretty much a no brainer for me. The flight from London is also only one hour 45 minutes so it’s nothing at all. And even better it was my girlfriends birthday on the Wednesday, so we stayed a lil’ extra few days and made a holiday out of it after the contest.

Yesterday was by far the best day yet at Battle in the Rockies. Reklamation Bikes threw down another $200 for a one minute battle format, which is now being dubbed as Fight Club! Dub and Dom both threw down flawless runs, we did intend for the final 3 to battle for the cash. But in the end we decided with the riders agreement to split the cash. The atmosphere was electric inside the warehouse, great riding also from the likes of Dez Maarsen, Pete Brandt, Jason Plourde who had just set up a brand new bike, Masashi Itani, Benjamin Hudson (threw down a ridiculous xft crackpacker line).
The contest starts today, Novice, Veteran and Am. The top 3 in Am will battle it out in the club downtown Colorado Springs for the title and the AM Flat Circuit year end title.
As soon as I get a live stream link, it will be on the site today! Stay tuned, it’s going to be an amazing contest!
