Grand reopning of FLATlinING Bmx the pulse is back
with full repo of
tgms trip to battle in Leicester

The day starts with a bang. Me and Yinka Tomas meet at tgm at about 8to meet Steve Green and Mario Carelse for 830. Yinka gets a call at 8.45
from Mario his face changes within a second. Steve's car has broken
down. We get told to wait at tgm so we wait 9.45 the boys roll up inthe working car (thank god for that) and finally with four bikes, four
bros in a hachback were off to Leicester.

We arrive after a 3 hour journey.... been an hour late Keelan Phillips
event organiser kindly waited for us to arive befor starting the comp.

In amateur we have 6 riders one being our very own Yinka he smashed. landing
him self a cool 1st Place go TGM. thanks to function flatland for
there prizes and all the other riders

1st Yinka
2nd Alex Romain
3rd Stu Mclaren

Now we start to get dirty expert class, now this class was done in
battle format. Once agen we have 6 riders so it started with 3 battles
of 2 riders, then a big fat threesome of a final. I ended up get mached
up with Mario, who I have riden since I started riding and who taught me
many a trick. It was a tough battle. Decades, Boomerangs,
Hitchhikers, and much more was thrown down, but in the end Mario won.

Well done bro..... so Mario advanced to the final along with Andy Wood and ashley adams. Three way final time battle to the death. young Ashley
rocking Time Machines hard fast and long, G-tune, Steamrollers really nice
clean and can see some talant in there but not much else trick wise.
Andy Wood was throwing down some tight rolling links all round nice
stuff. Mario stepped it up for this battle showing off his consistency and
old school flair, which grabbed him a cool 1st place, as well as his first
ever expert win.

Ps Two 1st places for TGM London...... what can I say pure bliss

You thought Expert was hard core now we're just going plain crazy. Pro
time. 5 riders all have one run, top 3 advance. Steve Green and Lee
Wilson smash it up in there runs. Lee doing his smooth Round the World
crazy shit and Steve spinning on his back wheel like a crazy man...also
landing his first Whopper in a contest. Which I also believe is a first for
UK flatland. But it wasn't enough to beat the skills of James White
Keelan Phillips and Norbert Onodi. Once again we have a three way battle. Norbert Onodi had some nice skills, some real fast Pinkys nice big Switches and it was
cool to see a new rider in pro class. James doing his famous Beoncey booty
wiggle pumping long lines off pure bliss One Hand Whips to Hitchhiker and
Walk Around Deathtrucks, just pure sex on a bike. Kelan.... now normally
I'm not a fan of his riding, technically yes but not the Inertia spark and
fair. This time it was all there Opposite Foot Pedal Hang 5 with his
foot in the frame, Karl Cruiser Bar Flip out and just so much more.
It was such a hard decision James had obviously done a bit of pratice. Kelon was
on fire but the judges had to make a decision (insert dramatic pause)..... a
draw. So that's not a good ending now is it???? so the drama increased.. they got given two options, share 1st and 2nd place prizes or a battle to the death. We
wanted death thay wanted sleep. We came to a decision, who could do the longest
Cliffhanger. It was a fight to the end, James and Keelan playing dirty
but Keelan got the wobbles and slipped out....the look on his face was
pure disappointment. James jumped off his bike happy as a pig in shit
screaming happy no bacon piggy joy. One more for London. Well done to James Mr Level Vibe him self King of the rolling.
