It was thanks to a recommendation from our friends at the Animal Bike Tour that we found ourselves taking a booking for Thorpe Park. We were asked to put on shows throughout the Easter break, to fill the gaps between the bike tour shows as part of the MASH UP spectacular, celebrating the launch of new ride – Swarm. The ‘mash-up’ was a collaboration between 3 extreme sports – Slacklining, obviously… Mountain biking, represented by the trials legend that is Martyn Ashton and dirt-slayer Blake Samson… and free-running, represented by the guys from Storm Freerun – Paul “Blue” Joseph, Tim “Live-wire” Shieff and Phil Doyle.
Storm and the Animal bike tour had fused into one jaw-dropping show and it was down to us, between shows, to entertain the crowds that filled the arena.
We just love to slackline! Putting on a show and sharing that love is never a hardship. Our love for our sport is infectious and as well as drawing interest from the crowds as always, we quickly found that the Storm guys were spending their free-time between shows with us. Especially Blue who really seems to have caught the slackline-fever… by day 2 he was nailing butt-bounces and getting agonisingly close to landing backflips on the line! so much potential…
We even got to enjoy some of the rides…
Big Thanks to Thorpe Park and the Animal Bike tour for a great few days.
