What would be a more appropriate place to hold the London E-Games than the Olympic Park. Our London Ambassador Charles Cohen got the word out to all the local e-skate crews, squads and swarms. Wick Boards shop was present and the local scene was ready to ride. We wanted to try something new for an e-skate gathering beyond the simple group ride.
We tried to push people to discover the Mellow, work on their carves, go fast and have more fun on their e-skates. After breakfast Andrew gave the guys a good stretch to get everyone ready for a big day of riding ahead of them. To warm-up things up we did relay races in teams of 4 in the various Mellow modes. The winning team “Big Dave & the fam” won new buddybuddy decks with ease. We then rolled the event down to a closed strip of highway where we set up cones and riders blasted through the course looking to get the top time to win a Bastl deck. The endless riders that stood out with the fastest times were our personal trainer, Andrew, Erin, Mike and the not so young but so fast Kevin who was placing times on his regular longboard as fast as the times during the Eco mode (25km/h) heat.
The final stage of the event was the treasure hunt where a Mellow remote to a Mellow S drive was hidden in the park with a riddle to find it. Read the riddle at the bottom of the article if you want to try break the code. The fastest to unravel the riddle was Adrian who we're happy to see win since he had managed to injure himself skating earlier in the day. He ended up going home with some new scrapes and bruises + a Mellow S to attached to his longboard to become another of many e-skaters in London. Stay tuned for our next events in Hamburg July 6th and Paris starting July 11th.
