This week I headed back to Mexico to shoot for a TV program, bust some demos, and perform for a crowd of 40,000 people! It was a crazy trip & story to tell for sure! Please read along to see what happened.
In the mix of filming for a huge TV program we traveled all over Mexico City into small towns to perform in front of the most popular areas. It was awesome!
On the way to a wild photo shoot we got pulled over on a dirt road by a Mexican cop. Apparently we were speeding. It was super scary to be in the Van because our driver was a speed devil!
We ate at a ton of great places.. Unfortunately I became very sick after eating the meal you see above. I was so sick they sent a doctor to my hotel room. He told the organizers of the event that I needed to go directly to the hospital to get a shot. After I got the the shot I spent a full 30 hours in my hotel trying to get better.
It was crazy going into the hospital to get the shot injection because I was the only person in the entire place. I was nervous to take the Mexican medicine but they assured me it was ok. :)
I went to the hospital 2 days in a row to get the shot just to make sure I would have my strength back to perform at the big show that would happen on the last day.
Before the big show I met up with these kids that were super stoked to watch me ride. I signed all their bikes & shirts before I headed off to get ready for the big performance.
That night I performed for 40,000 people! It was by far the biggest crowd I had rode for. It was rad! They had Sky divers, B boys, airplanes, singers, trail riding, and myself were all apart of the big show. Thanks to Red Bull Mexico for hooking up this awesome experience. Also Thanks to Robby Klein for coming along to shoot some amazing photos that you guys will see soon!
