There I was minding my own business doing something or other of little importance when i got a email from Peru. The msg was short and too the point ”contest in Peru is on for Tuesday the 14th of August”. I got that mail on Thursday evening which happened to also be a public holiday. So after much debate at the brass bell over a couple of Milk stout quarts with Ross Lindsey, ( who also gave me a Nixon watch right there at the bar thanks bru) Reza and a couple other Kbay locals i decided i had to go.
The Next morning i called Red bull team manager and all round great guy Ryan Payne and told him i needed to go. Even tho most people took the Friday off Ryan somehow managed to get me a flight to Peru at the last minute. Without the support of guys like Ryan and Red bull it would be almost impossible for me to compete at these events.
