2016 was my 13th year back riding after suffering a brain injury from a serious bike crash, It was also 20 years from when I began riding BMX. I was keen to film what I hoped would be one of best video projects, at 33 years young! However in the all too familiar Nik Ford time bomb scenario, I had another nasty crash on my bike and needed to have surgery to reconstruct my shoulder. This delayed the start of filming and meant I had a lot to fit in to the later half of the year. Now the edit is complete I am stoked with all the clips, my favourites include the no handed xup grind, suicide double barspin rocket icepick, feeble grind to xup pegs to barspin out and the rodeo grind.
It was particularly hard to film in this spot as most of the ramps are 5ft or smaller but it's on my door step, it's only 3.5 and its cool to give your local parks some coverage. I will be shooting TWS4 this year but I need to build some perfect setups and go to some epic parks!
