Red Bull has been sending motorbiking chaps to Sri Lanka for a while, which is cool. They roll with serious cinematographers, which is why I embed the video above. It has crazy footage of guys flipping over on motorbikes, but also great footage of the city of Colombo. Like the central city, the part that people are starting to reclaim post-terrorism.
It’s actually quite beautiful, the Galle Face Green, the red brick of Fort. The streets, the diversity. It’s just the background of guys jumping 50 feet on bikes, but what a nice background it is.
The X-Fighters are amazing, and thousands of people came out to watch. The usual Sri Lankan thing is watching chaps ride around a motorbike in a barrel, or watching a guy in a motorcycle helmet on a pole. Both pretty cool, but it’s nice to see international stars as well. More and more athletes and musicians and stuff gracing our shores and it’s nice for everyone. Thank you, come again.
