So it has been a really crazy 48 hours stay in Andorra. Of course, so much has happened in such a short amount of time that it would be hard to mention it all. However, as rain has now interrupted the BMX pro comp again, we´ll try to give you the update on what´s been cracking since yesterday, while we wait until the storm is over.

First of all, it has been a really intense contest, with many different types of skaters all going hard for a free ticket to Malaysia. Not everybody might be pleased with the results, but it´s an honest attempt at trying to confront all these different visions. In the end, it was without a doubt the sickest blade show the FISE has seen in a long time. The bladers as a group worked hard to get the crowd hyped, and although taking over the mini ramp after the BMX finals might have seemed tricky at first, it worked perfectly in the end. Incredible blading from the top competitors, as well as positive energy all around, the Andorra crowd was just as pleased as us!
But like always, it was not just about the comp, but the overall experience of getting to see Andorra for the first time. Welcoming locals and unreal landscape, good food and cheap beers: more than enough to please everybody! From skitching cars in the streets, to the DJ show, to partying late at night after Montre took over the stage, we all had a great time and sure hope to be back in Andorra next year! For now, it´s time to pack our bags until we hit the road again. Roskilde festival, here we come!
