Crusty Demons Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena

November 4th, 2010

An almost capacity crowd of 11 000 fans packed into the Rod Laver Arena to see the Crustys tear Victoria a new one. All the riders were on fire after a monster practice session, the whip competition blew more minds than just mine and a crash free night was keeping everyone in high spirits.

The half time break came to a close, Barbie Q and myself strode out into the arena to rousing applause and knocked ‘em dead with a masterful rendition of “Jug jug, bucket O squid”, with me almost losing the mohawk due to Barbie’s over enthusiasm with her flame canon.

The crowd stood in silence as Jacko Strong warmed up for the front flip, three passovers came and went before he decided to go for it, in the end he came up a bit short, landing on his back wheel and being bucked off in true Crusty style. Jacko wasn’t too badly injured, came to his feet slowly, removed his helmet and received the crowd’s jubilation.

Crusty Demons show number 2 Adelaide

November 4th, 2010

Tension was high at The Entertainment Centre as popular fmx star Mike Mason crashed in practice ruining his ankle and sporting a massive purple and yellow bruise the length of his thigh.

The other riders seemed shaken by the crash and all were tentative when the show started. To everyone’s surprise superstar Seth Enslow even took a tumble and had to be stretchered off to hospital.

The Badpiper and Barbie Q came out after half time to a standing ovation and blasted their way through another killer performance.

With the Superstar in hospital and Mason on ice the riders were very tense for the second half but young gun Jackson Strong put everyone through the roof when he nailed the front flip in absolute breathtaking style.

The after party was held at the Austral pub and to my surprise, when we arrived there Seth had checked himself out of hospital and was one of the first at the bar for a well earned bevvy, what an absolute champion. The next day we all headed to Melbourne for show number 3!

Check out the highlights from the Adelaide show here!

Crusty Demons Perth, Burswood Superdome, October 16th 2010

November 4th, 2010

The Crusty Demons opened their Australian account with a bang at the Burswood Superdome on the 16th of October with an almost capacity crowd of 12 000 people. The crowd went mental for all the back flips, whips, crossovers and trains.

The Badpiper and his new sidekick, Barbie Q set the crowd ablaze after the halftime break with all the locals screaming for their local hero, escorted from the arena in Bubbas famous four wheeler to a rousing applause to assume the position at the Woodstock Crusty bar for the rest of the show.

The finale saw 18 year old Jackson Strong attempt his first front flip on WA soil and would have landed it if it wasn’t for the thickness of the crash mats laid out for him. The night ended with an explosive fire works filled finale and the Crusty gang headed to “The Shed” for the Perth after party, be sure to check out the highlight reel for all the Perthy action.
