next year. 19+

I dont really have owt to say about derby, its a good track, fun, long, fitness and smoothness is the key, i dont have any of either, sadly there was wind, and i hate wind, wind and me just dont agree. so i wasnt in the jumping mood. i was gating pretty good for me, and spinning alright, i just couldnt get first jump, after gates i tried to pick up manuel it, ended up touching the top of the lip, which sent my body weight foward, and me over the bars onto my lovely back lovely big bruise and lots of pain, which has cost me a week off walk and a pimp limp around the house, haha good times.

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

Todays picture is of me and elise, shes 16 now and ready for the big wide world. or so she thinks. but this wont stop her from been terrified of me or calling me a loser, bullying me or stropping about chips. either way. happy 16th!!!!sorry its a week late.........

ok, so last saturday and sunday was press-ton national, il start off, over two days? seemed odd, but since i didnt get much sleep friday night, and wasnt in the best shape, this was actually an advantage to me. race two motos and have a good night and be fresh for sunday, did it work out this way? noooooooooooooooooooooooo never does haha. il start off with cruiser, cause i did alright in that for once, moto one, 3rd, i like it already, moto 2, toughy, 5th after josh decided that going left off the track into the fence near a hot chick was the best idea, cheers josh. and moto 3, errrrr anyone say, pressure? me and twarn on 8 points each, whoever won out of us two gets to final, boommmmmmmmm snazel with the snap, in about 3rd, watching more athletic people cruise past him, then twarn, and wan-king, then 3rd straight caught up, last turn, BOOMMMMwide and undercut, cutting twarn off and drag race with wan and popey to finish 4th or something and squeeze into the final. final was shocking, i had a good gate but due to my sqeeze into the final, i had lane 8, which sucks, couldnt move over on ryan and that was that, wan didnt finish the lap, he actually bairly started it, unlucky wan, next year? neither did issit (hope your alright bud) he went down hard on that triple double step up thing at end of second straight. i finished 6th. BMX, juniour men, im totally outta shape and yeh, i did shit, i got a good gate in a moto, then was shut down by "pull em all" farran, cheers bud. Semi final, something happened into the first berm, including a very pissed off greg holloway, he makes me laugh does that lad, and daniel thorne, couple of lads seemed to fall aswell, i thought i was in 4th following popey and shipley into the final, turns out, i was 5th hahaha. oh wel. B-Best for me and with it, a 4th or 5th, either way, i wasnt arsed, my legs were killing.

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, no photos of me riding, as someone hasnt send me any! ;) for all your needs.

one for the ladies, billy luckhurst, eat your heart out, and love his single digit finish in juniour men. oh and thats my top.

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.

piece and love x
