The Battle Royal
November 28, 2002

What happens when you get a whole bunch of Europe's best downhill mountain bikers and Moto crossers together and let them loose on the paintball field? They wear lots of padding a kick seven shades of s**t out of each other.

WDP joined forces with MX clothing gurus Royal Racing at their end of season bash "Battle Royal". Royal Racing invited top riders from the UK and Europe to a weekend of absolutely filthy fun in Yorkshire. This year WDP built a paintball arena and let the two wheel troopers shoot each other to bits. Despite the torrential rain and knee deep mud the battle hardened teams had an absolutely fantastic time. For most of the guys  it was their first experience of paintball on an inflatable field and after a few minutes practice the guys were soon shooting left and right handed, staying well tight and cheating like crazy. True professionals.

Current World Down hill champ Steve Peat, from team Orange, made shooting from the hip look almost credible. Whilst Rob Warner of world team Giant was left nursing some bad bruises. Other top names included Dutch, top world downhiller Bas de Bever, Chris Tett 
world Enduro madman and top world BSX exponent Scott Beaumont.

Top paintball team at the end of the day were Old Skool (who won six out of six) who included the likes of Top Pro Elite riders Will Longdon and Nibs Kelly.

Next year we are going to see a Moto-x paintball joust. That should be one for your diaries
