Pepe Laporte Interview
1. How do you feel about how the finals went down?
I feel that the finals is a moment that everybody is more emotional than thinking of strategy. It was awesome to make it with Thiago the world champion. Emily who is killing it. I was so confident but I made a little mistake that took my chance to win. Im a guy who tries to take the good from the bad and always look foward.
2. You took a hard crash during the practice run before the quarter finals with Thiago Mohr. Are you okay?
Yeah, I am okay. After the crash I looked up to the sky to thank that I was still standing. I came out from it even stronger me, it woke me up and made me more focus and confident for the race
3. So you made it to the finals of both world cups. What are your plans for the rest of the season?
My plan is to keep my board under my feet and working hard as I am. Keep doing my thing. I love skateboarding so much, that is my life. I am all in on it and I cant wait for the next chapters. There is still a long road ahead.
Harry Clarke Interview
1. How you going to celebrate your first World cup podium?
Getting drunk with the boys cause thats who I did it for.
2. You were here last year but you weren’t able to race because you accompanied Robert Burns to the hospital. What surprised you about the event this year.
Last year was dry this year was wet. Bottom chicane was terrifying. Bails were hard and people were bouncing out, that was spooky
