This is the third motorcade during the PFF Suzuki U-23 National Cup. The first was at Laguna, the second at Dumaguete and the third here in Davao City. This by far was the longest. And the heat was real stifling. I got sunburned! In the pic above, I am with Suzuki's Eilleen Esteban and the Azkals' Paolo Pascual. Right before we took off. Some 100 riders joined us in addition to several motorcycle cops. One Team Suzuki guy was doing all sorts of motorcycle tricks that amazed us no end. Wish I got that on video.
Riding shotgun with da Chief. It was real hard taking pics but I managed some. This was a better motorcade than the one in Dumaguete. I figure it was the route. Here people recognized them. As we past one street, there were about a dozen kids chanting "Azkals! Azkals!" and they were going nuts. I took a photo of construction workers high up on a building cheering and waving. Incredible.
Nope it's not some motorcycle gang. It's the Azkals on wheels. So move of Mad Dogs. Hahaha. Anyways, the 30-minute motorcade was taxing. And when we arrived at Agro Field, for a spell, no one was watching the game as people crowded the guys for photos and autographs. I wish I took more photos of that but I was trying to concentrate on an exciting game between North Cotobato and Davao. The home team won 3-nil. Short story later.
