I used to get off my bike and walk it passed the Pool in case I fell in! I only ever rode around it a few times and even then most of the time someone would have to run in to rescue my bike. Sod dropping in to it. :crazy2:

Nice shirt too Billy! :daumenhoch:

I was always scared by that bowl. It just looks horrible to ride...

In fact I only rode it for the first time after I saw MiniChubs Bailee, aged 4, carve around it.  :-[

Well there`s still a chance, mind you you might be dissapointed  :crazy2:

I remember that pic - one of the first bmx mags I bought! And now I finally met him in person nearly 25 years later at Old Fools! Who would have thought it...?!

That was my first feature in a mag so I was really pleased with it even though Skyway were none to pleased because of the lack of crash helmet. Although in my defence that pic was taken whilst me and Chris Young were warming up before a demo, there was plenty of opportunity for them to have published a pic of me with the crash helmet on  :knuppel2:

Bill's one of the toppest blokes you could meet.  A real piece of UK BMX history and very modest as well.  And to top it all, he's still rad as fook!

Isn't a bomb-drop where you hold the seat and leap in sideways? Technically that's a drop-in or and elevator.

Remember doing the one hand one foot ones into that Bill?
great pictures there . that pool is scary i got 3 foot air out of that liked it better than the performance bowl
