Ride to Glory

Ride to Glory: Wethepeople – Day 2

By Nathan Beddows

Day 2 – Sunday

A hazy start gave way to some nice although very  blustery weather. After a wee drive from B’mouth  and a big discussion about ‘BMX Jibrony Top Trump Cards’ (which may or may not be hitting the stores by xmas – just waiting on a funding decision) we hit the streets of Southampton to get the first session kicked off.

Ashley Charles was our man doing the tourguide thing however we didnt even see him do a barspin because as it turns out Ashely has fallen in love and is head over heels in dreamworld like a young puppy. Hopefully a visit to slades might sort his head out..?

Bruno Hoffman and a bra?

Bruno Hoffman must be too young for hangovers because he was already shredding from the word go, jeeze that kid is good, even just mess-around stuff like the stair drop to 180 you can see in the pics – might not look much but you need that hop and spin thing on lock to bosh that quick snap after landing you getz meh?

Northern John at the more the veteran end of the riding spectrum was busting classic NJ moves including a bit of bush-diving on a rail to bars. In other good news NJ has secured a place on the Red Bull Pro team thanx to some slick talking with Red Bull Europe – They are sending NJ some full Red Bull leathers so that he can be the worlds oldest rider to go 60 on a BMX (oh yeh note to self – we need to get some rope for towing him). Photo contingency should be popping off soon. Damn son!

Jason was riding brakelesss but he misses double-whip taps so he’ll be putting some brakes on tomorrow when we visit Hotwheels to rinse em for parts. Jason also pissed on my feet last night at the bar so hes not in my good books.

The day ended by trying to get some seahags to whip their boobs out but then realising they wouldnt be print worthy so just settling for the bra swap thing. Eeeuurrgh! SEAHAGS!

Got a phonecall from my inside man on Profile to say they haven’t completed any challenges yet and have just been drinking in Plymouth. Tut tut… We’ve nearly done all ours. Yeh no joke WTP are in for the muthaf@kin win son!
