Local Trails Video

Emily Horridge and Rich Auden came to visit last week, they hit up loads of different spots in the area and rode a couple of days with us. Emily made this pretty cool video of the weekend. It has Scoob and me doing a new transfer at city trails, that was really fun! On saturday night we chilled at Scooby's with a few beers and numerous BMX videos... PA woods, FBM jam on Props, Fit trails tour from France, to name but a few. Good times. Stone got a bit emotional over the fit video! ahh!

French sun and English sun



I haven't updated since France I know... sorry about that, but it was such a good week that it was pretty depressing being back home. Also, there will be a report in the next Fastlane BMX mag written by the one and only Jonny STD, so check that out for the low down! In the mean time, check out my Flickr album from the trip, pictures say 1000 words anyway. Good Times.

Oh yeah, check out this vid of Scott Waterhouse's attempt at the Montelimar triple that Tuffy did last year...crazy!


Ross sent me a couple of his pics that he took of me at Montelimar. That track is so fast, I love hammering down the first straight. I was pretty stoked at clearing the big roller table into the first corner this year at the first attempt!





Last weekend the English sun finally made it out and Jay, Stoney and Ross headed over to Norwich for the day. It started off pretty chilled, we were all a bit fuzzy from the night before! Tucker and Matt had spent all winter digger a crazy deep roller to bomb hole, into a 6ft tall steep lip into a big stepped up landing. It took a few goes to get my head round the speed you pick up so quickly. With no Matt to show us the way, Stoney manned up and hit it, followed immediately by Stiffler, so with the pressure on, I hit it too! As the day went on more and more locals and kids showed up, we all started training the jumps it was so much fun. Some crazy kids cleared the step up too, then it started going off and everyone started tricking the big step up! It was like a 90's flyout dirt comp! Such a good atmosphere, loads of poeple on the jump watching and taking pics, Stiffler T-downed it, I tyre grabbed it, Ross no-handed it and Stoney 360'd it!

I just wish I had a photo of the scene that day but nevermind ay, I have the memories!
