Hello Everybody! I showed up at XGames this morning on Thursday, July 30th. Parking was already packed, credentials are on lock down, please don’t email, text or call, I have zero powers! Ha-ha
When I walked into the Home Depot Center the women’s motocross -moto x practice was in play. The girls on the track looked good, they were definitely taking their time getting to know the layout. Ashley Fiolek and Jessica Patterson were hucking the huge table top in no time!
I saw Miki Keller at the entrance to the track watching her girls in action. Definitely a fan of Miki’s passion and commitment to make women’s motocross part of the XGames. Still blown away by her achievement.
I am now sitting at a booth in the Group Y Action Sports Conference, here is the current panel speaking:
Here I am directly across from Stefy Bau as I know her 2x WMA Motocross Champion and you may know her as the Youthstream Womens’ World Championship Manager and my BFF forever and ever Kasey Bancroft. Here they are below:
To the right of me I have Mike Story, President, owner of Big Daddy Media who supplied the internet service portol for us at the Action Sports Conference today.
Here are some quick shots from today:
Couldn’t resist taking a picture of the “King” himself Jeremy McGrath, booty shot for the ladies!
Check out Sherri Cruse getting some advice from Travis Pastrana
Jessica Patterson is discussing the track and her 1st practice with her team.
Our local Southern California hero and X Games 2008 Bronze Medal Winner, looking happy and confident with her practice!
Jacqueline Strong is experiencing her 1st time at XGames, I’m sure her nerves are on edge! Lots of pressure on this track!
