2006 San Francisco Grand Prix

Also on Digital Download. 
Held is the intimate and perfect for bodybuilding Chabot College Performing Arts Center in Hayward, Northern CA, this venue was superb for our GMV team as well as the many fans.

Witness the incredible battle of GUSTAVO BADELL versus BRANCH WARREN as they slug it out on stage at this year's San Francisco Grand Prix. Pose for pose, comparison by comparison we have never seen such raw aggression, noise and determination on stage as Gustavo reversed his defeat at the hands of Branch from the week before in Columbus, Ohio! This will go down in the record books as a classic confrontation! This takes nothing away from Melvin, Mustafa, Toney and all of the other great competitors in the field of 26. So it was an outstanding victory for GUSTAVO BADELL.

You will see all the key comparisons from prejudging, the top 15 as they perform their solo compulsory poses, plus the complete posing routines of the top 15 competitors.
Includes posing from the non finalists and the dynamic and exciting top 5 posedown and awards. This was Gustavo's second pro victory. Badell and Warren are 2 of the up and coming new Powerhouses of pro bodybuilding!

2006  IFBB San Francisco Pro Men's Grand Prix Competition - Review by Gerry Triano.

Producer: Wayne Gallasch, GMV Video (Australia),  
Contest Promoters: Steve O'Brien/Jon Lindsay - Held on March 11, 2006
Masters of Ceremonies: Lonnie Teper, Bob Cicherillo - Head Judge Steve Weinberger
Time of DVD 116 minutes show coverage plus 24 minutes of Extras for a TRT of 140 mins.
This DVD covers the early afternoon prejudge and evening finals with the sharp images and "you are there front row" feel for which the GMV contest videos are acclaimed.
The prejudge begins with the top 15 (out of 26 competitors) each called out to execute the mandatory poses. The DVD cover has a Branch Warren vs Gustavo Badell theme, but there were some other top competitors in the 15 including Melvin Anthony, Armin Scholz, Ahmad Haidar, Johnnie Jackson, Eddie Abbew, Mustafa Mohammad and Toney Freeman.
The next round of the prejudge was the callouts for quarter turn comparisons. First callout consisted of Badell, Warren, Anthony, Haidar and Mohammad. After the quarter turns segment was the callouts for
comparison of mandatory poses. The first callout was almost the same in this round, except that Freeman replaced Haidar. The competition was spirited, and very audible was Badell's grunting during mandatories
(especially when he executes most muscular).
The evening show began with a minute of posing from each of the non finalists. What Derik Farnsworth may lack in mass he compensates with entertaining posing ability. Then each of the 15 finalists presented
his routine. Melvin Anthony is always notable. Branch Warren showed some imagination and Mustafa Mohammad showed theatricality in his deliberate and dramatic posing to Phantom of the Opera. Actually, the overall quality of the posing at this show was at a rather high level that should be expected from this caliber of athlete.
Then came the introduction of the top 5, and a final comparison and then a posedown. There was an audience poll for a People's Choice award, which went to Branch Warren. Then the announcement of the results: 5th, Toney Freeman, 4th Mustafa Mohammad, 3rd Melvin Anthony, 2nd Branch Warren and winner of the gold medal and sword was Gustavo Badell. As always from GMV, well done and recommended.
The DVD Extras include an impromptu posing sequence from Bob Cicherillo, a gym posing sequence from competitor Frank Roberson and training partner David Jacobs, and a huge slide show of photos from the show.
