Ollie Matthews is now into surfing and apparently no longer rides...

Zach Shaw and Gerry Galley bumped into him.....

Ollie made a remark about still riding kids bikes...  :-\

apparently, Gerry had to be held back!!  ::)

That's a shame from someone who was very highly rated!

He was a good rider Ollie and I wouldn't have expected him to have come out with a remark like that  :idiot2:


Yeah, and he must have got a bit of that from ppl himself when he was riding....

I dont get it....

Shame!!

strange that. with some of the old footage i have been putting up on youtube i had a message from ollie and his fiancee a coupla months ago saying thanks for posting up vids of him  espec the timmy mallet one. seems he forgot about some of the stuff he did. she even invited me to their engagement party (despite not knowing ollie -  ??? )
i declined but wished em all the best. didn't know ollie dissed bmx riding. strange how people change.

Hey guys - if there is one thing I've learned it's this -
 
Never take to heart a comment taken out of context.

Who knows what the hell he was talkin' about.

NICE PICS (GARY ENCICLOPEDIA OF BMX)

Noone has mentioned Amos & Andy Burke
                                    Michael Reilly
                                    Marcus Cent (oops Gary did)
                                    Stevie Mcpherson LOL
                                    Scott Timmins
                                    Brian Scura (Inventor of the Scura Tuck)
                                   

Hope you've recovered from your Man Flu G !!!!!!!!!!!!

Strangely enough - went down the skatepark for a wee spin about on Saturday, then headed to the nearest bar. Hadn't even got to the place when a loud voice called my name. It was Timmins with Andy Burke, Big Sid and Rab - out on the lash! Ended up goin' to a few pubs with them before headin' home about 11.30pm! AND Aileen hit a roadworks barrier and wiped out on the way back! Cycling pub crawls - can't beat 'em!!!

Man flu still buggin' me AND I think I broke my wee toe on my left foot last night - caught it on a box - duh! It never rains, but it pours....

Im pretty sure Andy Brown is a member on here. Im sure I remember reading his posts but it was a while ago. His user name might have been Angry, or something close to that.
