By now you probably all know Mick beat Kelly in one of the most exciting finals of all time. Mick did some turns, Kelly did a big air, our boy Simpo had a solid showing, so forth and so on. But what you probably don't know about, is all the fun that went down behind the scenes. Lucky for us, we had our friends from Life Without Andy there in and around the competitors area to capture all the moments before, during and after the action at Bells. Check it out below.
