Back at the hotel the food starts flying.
Whether you’ve been racing and signing autographs all day or just hanging out talking to readers and catching up with far flung industry peeps you leave the Bike Show tense and knackered. So it’s back to the hotel for something to eat; off to Birmingham to have a good time and pull some hot rock chicks (and failing most of the time, except Dave); then back to the hotel again to race around the bar chasing world famous BMX millionaires in Spiderman costumes and throwing anything slingable from lumps of ice to small BSX racers at Andrew Titley until 6am. Which is about time for breakfast.
There is a certain tunnel vision stare that afflicts show people after a couple of days, you may have noticed.This is the reason.
Of course dedicated athletes and journalists like us lot don’t behave like that, high spirited, yes, but decent lads every one. (Except, of course, Rob). And here are the pictures to prove it:
Opening Pic: Rob adjusts his dress to receive an award (which luckily he didn’t get).
Main Pic: Doddy, Fin and wys gobsmacked by Dave Mira’s 360 backflip.
