Mexico was fantastic. We'd start late morning because we knew we'd finish around 8pm every evening, and there was always a buzz about the place because it was all to be built up to the grand event happening on the Friday night. We rehearsed Wednesday, filmed interviews on Thursday and when the second of two presenters arrived Friday we filmed links with both of them then, then set up for the commentators' positions for the event. Above is a pic of our rehearsal position. What was really cool was being the only bilingual crew member I was transtlating for one interview with Danny Torres, an Andalucian 20yr old. He was a nice guy, and appreciated the fact I translated for him, we got on well. Later on we realised how shit hot he was and that he may actually win the tournament. We filmed his bike for a feature on explaining how they do their tricks, and even filmed his Dad since he was some sort of blacksmith who welded on additional parts to the bike that not all riders had, and this enabled him to pull off better tricks than others.
Then unfortunately I wanted to climb over the red gates of the bullring and got arrested. But because the police are only four foot tall I managed to escape.
