King for a Day – Mugshots

As you have most probably seen by now, issue 167 featured the annual King for a Day jam in Leeds. Joe Bailey fired over these mugshots for us he took throughout the day. KFAD is to commemorate a dear friend the BMX world lost a few years a go. RIP Charles Prow…

Azeez is always on hand at the King for a Day jam. This dude perhaps never met Charles Prow, but as you can see he bench presses every single day in the guys honour. Beast mode.

Irish Ben. He’s been a fixture at most events in Leeds for the best part of 10 years. Usually the one trying to seek the most attention, but to be fair he is very funny.

I’m guessing these two young ladies got completely wasted on Lambrini. I could be wrong, but they probably did.

GDC (Garforth Death crew) are a stealth and very organised militia of BMX freedom fighters. Each year they supply a fly out ramp so crowds of drunk kids can shout “back flip”. Then they burn it down and create a mosh pitt in it’s burning embers. Like clockwork they disappear into the night shrouded in their hooded black cloaks (with optional slipknot patch).

It’d be interesting to find out how many people on the planet have these 3 letters emblazoned upon their person! If I ever win the lottery, I promise I’ll use the funds to discover that fact.

Dale Armstrong never leaves the house without his part leather J and matching flying goggles. You never know when you’ll be pressed into service when it comes to flying spitfires over enemy lines.

Danny Mac and his nephew. Danny was a close friend of Charles. He’s very handy on the bike too, but likes chess which sort of takes the shine off it.

Emo Keith. As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing emo about keith. If anything he eats emo for breakfast then smashes a staffy over his face.

Danny Fanny, Fanny Fadge. Worst nickname in the world but he more than makes up for it with his BMX skill set.

Ricky Feather was in the house as per. When he’s not taking photo’s of metal on instagram he’s riding his BMX and being the best at it. Kids good at everything, it’s so annoying.

T-1 Ian always makes a trophy for the jam. I guess Street Dave didn’t realise Ian had used half of his bike to produce this.

At this point Street Dave is clueless to the fact his bike is in pieces and being used for the trophy. Quick SD fact, he once stayed up really late (time zone) so he could call the Primo HQ and request they made the famous “Stiffie” peg 2″ longer.

This is jamie Duncan. He moved from the tranquil Welsh valleys to Bradford Uni. LOL.

Jono and Little Lee. These two are a right pair of likely lads.

“I’d never wear that T-Shirt” said Mole to merlin.

Polish import Rafal just after eating shit on UK soil. This kid is one to watch. Can’t go for a piss without wearing a leather J.

Ah haa.. You were wondering where Lorenzo Reid was then. Here he is. He’s been riding a lot recently, unfortunately Hyde Park doesn’t have a jumpbox so we weren’t treated to his array of early noughties combo tricks.
