Delving back into the video archives, and following on from the Joe camera/beer combo photo that was posted on t1stagram yesterday, for this T-1 Euro tour from 2000… The photo was shot at the Worlds in Cologne at the end of this trip, and although the memory is a little foggy, I think after driving down from Hastings things kicked off with a dawn session at Marseille, then led to a stay at an “interesting” hotel in northern Italy, a vert comp in Graz, a visit to Vienna, a session at Thomas Stellwag’s skatepark near Munich, then a weekend in Cologne for the contest. Unlike the 2001 tour, the car didn’t break down on this trip, but we did fall foul of Cologne’s parking laws. After waking up and discovering the car was no longer parked where we (cough… Taj!) had left it we finally figured out that it had been parked on the wrong side of the street and towed away. One bike ride to the outskirts of the city, and one fine payment later, we were reunited. The jeans and sprockets may have been bigger back then, but they still can’t take away from how good Joe’s 270 over to ice looks. Thanks to BMXMDB for hosting this.
