A few moves you love to do when out riding…

Probably to Canberra for Danes jam last year. Flight got delayed 3 times and didn’t get there till the very end and didn’t get to ride. Still a goodtime seeing everyone and having beers afterwards.

Random story from your local park?

Hahaha always cracks me up when I see this kid from my old local in coffs. He always came down on shitty kids mtn bike with the old skool goosneck stem. one day he came down and jumped the spine and he must of had moto grip real bad and while he was in the air he pulled the grip right of the bars and ate shit! The next day he came down again and was jumping the spine this time he jumped and pulled the bars and goosneck completly out of the forks and was flying through the air with his bike in pretty much 2 pieces and ate shit again.
