I saw that my "Grey and Flat" video was posted. Thanks Davetrials!

There is a good reason why I haven't been producing videos lately. All summer I was doing 19 shows per week, with only one day off. I had no energy to film. My knees became a little sore so I needed a break after the contract. Now, I am doing a show that is only 3 days per week, but as you saw in Grey and Flat, the town has very little riding. I was stoked to film!

Here is my current act:

AndyT: no girl, need to buy a bigger van with a double bed first haha ... Thinking Sprinter, with a small garage under the bed in the back for bikes ;)

The arcade is getting a lot of use! Putting smiles on many faces, and getting paid well for it! Hope you enjoy this video. Not the craziest riding, but I need to do it many times per day with no falls, so yeah!

19 shows per week?! That's insane haha.
It's a bit sad that this forum doesn't seem as supportive for non-uk riders, but I think it's great you're giving the sport a spotlight in this kind of environment.

Yeah, can't imagine doing 19 shows per week!! 

Glad you're getting on well with them, I'm surprised they didn't jazz up the bike at all but I guess there did seem to be an industrial theme going on. I can believe the pay is good from what I've heard from my flatmate who is designing a couple of Cirque shows at the moment...they've got massive budgets!

Yeah man, It was tough as can be on the body. I was on the edge of being injured all the time. I feel a little bad that I haven't pushed the limits lately. I've had some nbd tricks on my mind for a long time. Mr. Langlois will take em all if I wait too long haha!

We still need to ride sometime eh???
