After the carnage of Christmas I managed to fit in a trip to see the Crusty Demons UK 'Unleash Hell' Tour at the MEN last night. Freestyle MX is massive in the US ( it always gets the biggest viewing figures during the X-Games ), but in the UK the majority of Motocrossers are hardcore mud racers, that said the arena was full of fans in their various different bike company jackets ( think F1 jackets but with a little more dirt ).
The show was insane, three huge gap jumps, 10 riders and some balls out riding. I'm not sure if they understood the Manchester crowd, but it is good to see events like this finally hitting our shores.
I put together a short movie with footage from my little camera ( apologies for the quality ), what you don't get from this is the scale of these jumps ( 70ft+ ) and the ease at which these guys defy gravity.
