Adam In England

Jul 31 2008 / Thursday

Adam Baker reports from the Red Bull Empire of Dirt:

Wow what a contest. Kyle Forte has put together one of the craziest courses of all time. After my sixteen hours of travel I arrived in London to find that the airlines had lost my baggage. At first it was no big deal but after a few days it was a real bummer. No clean clothes, no toothpaste, and worst of all no bike.

Chris Doyle had had the same problem with his baggage a week earlier and had put together a new bike before getting his real one. This left him with two bikes one of which he let me use. I thought at first that his bike would be fine. Chris and I are the same height and ride almost the same bike. I was very wrong, it felt so strange and it left me just jumping the first few jumps and stopping quickly.

On the final day of practice I got my bike I ended up taking it pretty good on an opposite curved wall ride. I smashed my face and woke up the next day to find that I had sprained my wrist pretty good. I was real bummed to sit out one of the best contests that I have ever been to.

Even thought I was wrecked, I had a good time hanging out with Dylan Smith watching Ruben, Taj and Sergio shred the course. It is also always a good time getting to hang out with Mr. Povah.

I am here in England for another week filming for the S and M video. I am healing rather slow but hoping for the best. Good luck to all the boys in the x-mess.
