Red Bull caught up with George Marshall to talk about the spot 30 feet under the ground in Madrid, Spain, where the Metro Pipe was held, the Chamartin Metro station.
“Wishful thinking can be a blessing and a curse. For some time I’d heard rumours of an extraordinary spot in a Metro station, somewhere deep under the Spanish streets of Madrid. From the vague whispers and handed down stories, the spot I envisioned was a perfect concrete half pipe set in a futuristic modern Metro station reminiscent of a scene from Blade Runner. Wishful thinking told me it was a dream like place to ride and shoot photographs, definitely worthy of some risks and a cheap airfare from London.”
