Places to ride:
I almost always ride in my tint shop’s Garage. Its a controlled environment I have kids so when I get to ride I want to make the most of it with no distractions thats why I almost always stay indoors.
I have a great outdoor spot and my basement as well.

No one likes me cause I snake too much 🙂 lol.
I usually ride alone but Brian Gavigan AKA yellow comes down to ride with me when he can, as well as the Colorado flatjams crew.

Websites to check:
Everyday I go to Flatmattersonline and Global-flat to see whats up.

Snaking techniques:
Look for British guys that wear gloves and be sure to get in their way, also watch for someone to get ready go and make sure to cut them off while always looking forward. (editors note: Don’t I just know it hahaha -ref- Guru jam Practise)

This year AM Flat Circuit, Trans Jam, Bike days in Switzerland, Fise in France,
The Worlds, and some of flatland world circuit.
Also if there was a good contest in England, I would maybe go to that as well LOL 🙂

Most movies that are based on true story’s I always find entertaining.

Video parts to watch:
I have a few videos out there on vimeo my “year in the life” has alot of good stuff as for everyone else.

  1. James “Bucky” or “Quick Buck” McGraw has been a legend and an inspiration for many years. I remember him kickin ass (and snaking like a champ) at Great Lakes Freestyle contests back in the late 80’s. I think John or Josh posted video evidence on youtube a while back. I gotta say seeing him ride at our age has pushed me to start picking up my bike again on a daily basis.
