I saw a banner on the Colosseum in Portoviejo that showed Freestyle Motocross.
I rounded up some hooligans from San Clemente to go and check it out.
Charlie, Keith, Eida and I all piled in and went to Portoviejo.
Here was the line to get in.
This is what the stadium looked like with the set up. It was much smaller than what I expected, but it was a nice change non the less.
As with most events in Ecuador, they talk on stage. A LOT! Talk, talk, talk. No action.
They also put a pretty girl on stage to keep us entertained.
I spotted our friends sitting on the complete other side of the stadium.
My days of having a fantastic camera are over, so the next few shots are no where near the quality I want, but I can show the event.
They had a fashion show with pretty local girls.
In all of the following shots, there is a motorcycle somewhere in the photo. I tried capturing speed, clarity and blur images, but I really just ended up with a bunch of blurry pictures. Sorry for the low quality.
Some of the tricks were named: Superman, Knick Knack, Backflip etc.
There was a whole lot of talking in between about two 15 minute sessions of freestyle motocross.
Figuring it out… 1 blurry motorcycle picture at a time…
