1: What was the last thing you did today before answering this lot?
Taking a shower after a long weekend trip to the BSD Jam in the Unit23 park with the guys from GroundedBMX from Belgium, good times!

2: Where did you ride your bike last?
7 Trails

3: What was the last new trick you learnt?
Doing old-school no-handers again, not really new, but for some reason I couldn’t do them any more, now I can… again.

4: When did you last build up a new bike?
1 week ago

5: What was the last album you bought?
Rise Against: End Game

6: What was the last book you read?
Ryan Air guide in the plane. Full of absolute bullshit.

7: What was the last BMX video you watched?
Anthem II

8: What was the last city you visited?
Dumbarton, Scotland

9: When, and where, were you last genuinely lost on your travels?
July 2010, looking for the trails in Chertsey

10: What was your last meal?
A bag of Oreo cookies, not really a meal but that’s all I had so far and it’s 4 o’clock in the afternoon

11: What was the last great gadget or invention that you saw or bought?
It’s already a long time ago, but it’s definitely the last GREAT gadget I saw and bought. It’s a knife, fork and spoon all at once. My buddy Greg sharpened this knife with his diamond stone for me and the first time I used it I almost cut off my thumb which resulted in me riding with stitches for the next week of the trip. Bummer!

12: When was the last time you scared yourself?
In the Unit23 skatepark there is a Little Devil bowl replica, I scared myself riding this thing. I just couldn’t get comfortable with it and I chickened out a lot!

13: Where is the last place on earth you want to visit?
I think I would have to find this place before I can say that it is the last place I would visit. I don’t know, I’m really curious to see a lot of places.
