Haha I wouldn’t have, didn’t you see any of the others? All absolute stunners, yours included! By far one of the toughest months I’ve ever seen.

We all have our different reasons for voting for a particular bike in B.O.T.M.
Last month mine went back to a day in the early '80s at Chorley bmx track in Lancashire. I was hangin' out in the car park area between races watching various riders hitting this jump that went to flat but there was one particular lad that was doing 'ramp stalls' and other freestyle tricks.... but doing them really well and with style. I just couldn't work out what bike he was riding. I'd never seen one before and I was 'well up' on all the new products at the time. I got a bit closer and sussed out it was a smoked chrome Pro Class,not even in the magazines yet. I just loved the look of it.
Oh.. the rider was Andy Ruffell.  ;)

Oh right, and look where that got him eh?

Any word on how Andys PC rebuild is going? I saw it had been dig out and was under the spammers!
Also anyone seen Nicks as yet? I may have simply missed it.
