Johnny was big-time in Santiago. He was signing
stuff and even made a TV appearance.
The local news channel covered the event.
Diego was interviewed as well, telling the Chilean people to buy Toy Machine or get butchered.
The Butcher's knee is looking gnarly.
The crowd was massive and started chanting 'do hammers!'
at us. Apparently, they were more happy just watching their local heroes skate. We didn't even need to come! Kevin put it this way: 'With only three riders and in the midst of a local contest, the dudes did what they could among an expansive and jeering crowd. Diego was on the news and Johnny signed for days before injuries jinxed us.' Our driver likes to watch TV
while on the road. Hopefully he runs over one of these street performers
. After some hiccups with rider arrivals we're off to Valparaiso today.
There are many more photos to see from the trip on BURNOUT
