i finally got around to this. i know its been a while, and alot has happened. mainly me working out my budget is very small when it comes to january. which really sucks. basically. my MOT and Insurance are both due around the 20th of jan. and after christmas, i know im gonna be skint, cause thats just what happens.
Talking about cars, today i did the worst thing a person can do, LOCK YOUR KEYS IN YOUR CAR, put them down in the boot, my dad gave me his set of keys for the van, put them in my pocket, just as i was closing boot, checking i had keys in the pocket, i did, but the wrong ones. SLAM. bang. closed. FUCKED! not a happy snazel or big DJ SNAZEL, we did manage to get them out, but i wont tell you how. AND then did my days work, came out to the car to go home, already nakered, FLAT TYRE, wasnt happy, spent 10 mins changing that bad boy over and then snailed it home, NIGHTMARE.
BMX'ing on sunday, was good to see oggy cheerful, he was snapping and pulling (so it seemed) until a yowth by the name of jack hall killed him off, then oggy disapeared. ;) seemed alot of people who came thought the track had potential. and it does, we need to change the pro straight to something that is actually jumpable and faster than the ryhthme/roller straight? im sure billy fieldhouse could take his beloved tractor and get the job done in a day ;) just like how bradfords old track was done in what? 3 days? haha and it just as good as the one now i rekon ;). calum didnt race, he begged to go to mine for xbox playing, but i was like. NO i wanna race. why? why even bother trying in motos if your just gonna get done over. THAT RULE HAS NEVER APPLIED TO ANY OTHER RACE IV BEEN TO.
anyways, some b-day wishes id like to catch up on, kirsty cummins, OJ (only joking OJ) and of course. EDDIE SWALES. the one. the only.
PIECE and LOVE. MERRY Christmas and happy new year and all that x

bmx news. what is a bmx? i havent riden in so long i think i might of forgotten, hopefully gonna get out this saturday morning as its been snowing for time, and i bet the track has half washed away. ace. quality build. the last time i rode was with the goldcoast crew, and oj. the legend that he is, i was feeling it from the night before, and wasnt really on it. kyle and the jacob crew popped down too, kyle was launching the first one on the pro set, first lap. mega impressed, if only anyone or anything could jump the second one and third one, sounds like a job for antony tuffs if you ask me.
Other news, christmas arround the corner, and i know i should be excited, but im not, 1st of january is when my car insurance, car tax and mot are all due. What was i thinking last year to get them all on the same week. WHY, and yeh, christmas dosent get cheaper the older you get. i remember when it was free, haha, oh wel, apart of becoming more self reliant for money i guess.
love and peace!!!!!!! 2009, cant wait. also happy birth to elise, shes old.

NEXT YEAR, been thinking with all my time off of a been a plumbob and ligging around the house, i need to really pick things up, this year was a waste, no track, no gate practice, lost all will to train and just generally gave up, just went out and rode my bike, no matter what condition i was in. NEXT year though, gonna be different, im a new man, well in the bmx sense, getting back on it in the gym, going riding more, and riding more stuff than just lame bmx tracks, altho, we have 3 newish tracks, yeadon which looks the shizzle, leeds fernville for the pro start hill and last straight manuel competitions, and bradford for just going HUGE! which you will need to.
Good thing about bradford is, we have oggy, who has the best gates iv ever seen, he isnt fit at the minute with his messed up knee, but when hes on it, hes fun to chase down for sure!
NEXT YEAR, is defently gonna be weird without a good friend of mine, WAN so hes back on his rock on the isle of man, and he was half the reason i went and did gates, he always shouted me out for gate seshions! see you soon buddy! dont be a stranger!
So yeah, next year looks good, iv been thinking too much, time to watch some more the OC, yeh im addicted, its really bad. pictures are some guy falling off, and of cal and myself, supplied by the lovely abi.
piece and love until next time! x

MANY THANK YOU's this year, il start off with my cruiser buddy mr 2024 himself, johnathon hearn, he has a sweet s&m cruiser which i saw alot of 30-39 guys eyeing up, "sweet ride ey?" and i havent squared his wheels, but i might try and be abit smoother in the future, haha. 2nd, this is from preston, mr luckhurst himself, cheers for putting up with me, cheers for just about everything, cheers for including me in the nice family meal, and for some reason letting me stay with your lads. MUCH APPRIATED. 3rd - to anyone who helped me in difficult point, charley for putting up with me at coppul.... errr anyone really. ;)
ok this one as its pretty good, from right, charley "im ace" checking out the pimp himself russ hanlon, next is poor victim emily, next is the big daddy pimp himself russ hanlon, who has become my favourite rider to watch, 360 anyone? next his son, josh, who i get the pleasure of racing, anyone say podium in your first year in cruiser? and national wins? anyone? can you? big things in his future.
yehhhhhhhh, i look foward to getting down and dirty in the gym this winter, maybe even riding my bike when its sunny and leeds track is calling, i dont think bradford will be calling my name anytime soon, but thats another story. and coming back to 19+ and cruiser to finally beat wan on it, hes good on a safety cycle you know.

ok so this weekend i went the big cheese. LONDON baby.
Basically, it didnt start off very well, i had no idea it was the rugby cup final or something like that, and the guy behind me on the coach decided to talk all the way down, thanks! dick. so after been pretty "fresh" friday night and waking up after 3 hours kip, i wasnt in the best of moods for a half 6 wake up call. haha. got there though. and it was so worth it. i even made friends on the coach, england aint that bad. eyyyyyyy.
CHEMICAL BROTHERS! was the whole reason i went to london, terrys hook up so you know, its hot. think thats the best gig iv ever been to, easily, so much dancing and everyone was just feeling it, was mental! two djs before, first dj was mental and proper going for it.
SUNDAY rolled round, and the rain decided to come and ruin any chance of riding, but i wasnt really bothered, i got the chance to see london, and a load of cool stuff you dont see up north. check the of the big bmx wheel, that thing was tall and london is so cool to look at, went around london just chilled and had a massive laugh.
BIG shout out to terry, i know he hates blogspot. but it was defently worth the 6 and half hour bus journey back. defently.
Looking foward to riding this weekend, and just laying around and doing anything that comes up.more to come!

im aching, im tired, im actually bmx'd out. i rode pretty well for me i think, i havent had much track time, and it really showed, my gates felt good and my pull was pretty much alright, i was even jumping! just wasnt really my day on sunday, i was gating and pulling well, just felt bullied really. semi's rolled round and gate 8. mint, i snapped well and was about 4th with brad watts, i knew i wasnt getting past him no way, he was on a mission, so had to settle for 5th. not bad for a unfit, bairly riding yowth i say.
Other racing, it was probally the best brits iv been to for a while watching racing wise, Big shout out for arron skow, he always impresses me, but today, he took it that bit further, made the main and was 2nd to first jump, gutted he slipped his pedal, always next time, he finished 4th. juan watney, 4th in semi in stacked 16-29 crowser to be taken on the line, gutted for you wan, brits just arent your thing. jack hall, hold old? 12? haha how tall? he got unlucky after racing mint all day, good defending by adam really, next time jack, get the major title mate, you can do it. big shout to cal, pulling like a proper pro yowth. how? its his mums cooking i say, im jumping on that secret plan for sure.
props to the noisy north, was there any other regions there? i couldnt here any.
im looking foward to riding some more at windy fernville and getting back on it for sure.
