Liverpool Ladies Day

Ladies Day at Rampworx. Things didn't didn't get off to the best start with the journey to Liverpool taking over 5 and a half hours, to the wrong destination and a slight panic that Jenna's laptop had been nicked. Things supposedly wouldn't be fun if they all ran smoothly?

The evening saw some of the UK's best riders including top blader Jenna Downing and England International footballer Sue Smith (Sadie was very excited!!) representing.

The idea was to hold an event where young girls could attend and feel comfortable to learn in an all female environment - although there seemed to be quite a large amount of guys still riding which was a little confusing. After a couple of media whore-esq interviews the team along with Lucy Adams did a demo for the onlooking hoards. Also at the park were vert ripper Rebecca Aimee Davies and Lois Pendlebury.

Later on that evening everyone headed over to Bumper Club in the city centre to watch a sneak preview of the forthcoming Rogue demo - out online this Friday - then danced til the wee early hours of 5am.

Winding up the filming with Giggsy

Filming is winding up for the Rogue promo, last day in Brum tomorrow. Today saw Jenna wing her way to the Manc-side to get some last bits of footage with Maria.'d think? Until...obviously being the cool cats they are, as a Mr Ryan Giggs nonchelantly walked past and stopped on the corner where they were filming Jenna of course wouldn't think to stand there with her mouth wide open staring - catching at least 2000 flies in the process. Then trying to silently mouth to Maria "it's Ryan Giggs. Ryan Giggs!!", subltey pointing behind her other hand while he looked on very confused - Maria in reply "Roy Keene wow yeh we should get him on film"

This of course went down very well and he expressed an immediate desire to be in the Rogue film which we had to let him down gently on. In sad reality he dived into the Laungerie shop opposite as quickly as possible to get away from the somewhat crazy people. Maria and Jenna sat outside waiting for their opportunity to ask him to be on film. After 20mins in the cold Maria plucked up the courage to go into the shop with Jenna now shamefacedly in tow.

Of course someone up above was having a good laugh as the split second they walked in, out walked Giggsy looking somewaht suspect at the camera Maria had ready in her hand. The two then had to spend some time in the shop to make their story look authentic.

Sadly Mr Giggs will not be on the forthcoming promo, but a lot of bloody good skating will be!

Helena causes havoc

Whilst filming for the upcoming ROGUE promo, Helena scraped with the wrong side of the law after she apparently put a crack into a marble bench in Canary Wharf.

Security guards ahoy declared that she would have to fix the damage she had caused before they would let her go.

Eventually they agreed that there was a possibility that she couldn't have put the crack in the marble as she was not quite heavy enough to commit the crime in question. Thumbs up to the education system!

Thankfully all this was captured on ROGUE TV.

Ladies Day - Rampworx

On Friday 27th February the team will be doing a demo at Rampworx Skatepark as part of a larger festival taking place being organised by Dynamic Media. For more information tel: 0151 666 2224
