25th Anniversary - Bournemouth!!!

Postby flemdog » 29 Aug 2005, 23:14

Big thanks to all who made it a very special occassion and a mega big thanks to Mr. Ruffell who flew over 3000 miles to be here!!! Big respect Andy, the kid's (and big kid's) loved you and you where a real pro!!!

Great to see so many old faces there, here are some pic's I took, enjoy!

Image
Gary and Wayne Llewellyn with Shooter!

Image
Tom Lynch, seconds after jumping the big step up, he said he felt very dizzy and left for the hospital with a suspected broken collarbone…
Tom had cleared this jump many times but this time a kid blocked his path last minute, he jumped the step up diagonally (several feet further this way) and hooked up and landed on his side at the base of the step up landing…
Hope your OK Tom, you flew that step up with style all morning!!!

Image
Craig Schofield in his US Raleigh old school race jersey! (Rare)…

Image
Lee Alexandra was flying on his crowser all day, winning everything, he’ll be racing 30-39 Cruiser for sure next year…
PS, He X-up the big step up with ease!!!

Image
Tim Print rode for the blue team (Kellogg’s joke) and was snapping all day but absolutely sh1t himself first moto with a sketchy frst double jump…lol

Image
Full Metal Ruffell!!!

Image
John Stockwell (17+ National No. 1 BITD) on his Haro Group one (first one in the U.K), got his snap on by end of practice but crashed out in his semi…

Image
My old adversary!!! Mr. “360” Charlie Reynolds
PS, Dale, I told him the truth about you taking him out at Wigan and blaming me…Look over your shoulder mate!

Image
Buddy Rich “Dale, this is for you mate”

Image
Lee??? on flats??? I saw you mate and that nice one footed last berm move, sweet!!! :wink:

Image
Ruffell signing a team burner frameset for a burner fanatic (the owner could see dollar signs$$$)

Image
Ruffell and Craig (wheelie king) Strong!!! Craig Strong was and Icon of BMX bitd, he was famous for his world record wheelies on his 20" BMX with Raleigh chopper seat, he did a 3 hour plus wheelie once and stunts like his wheel coming off when he wheelied and then detaching the forks too!!!?
Big fan of Craigs!!!

Image
Andy and Charlie Reynolds... Andy's looking a little awkward becuase Charlie is offering his acting and stunt double towards Andy's TV production company, "I could be the next Vin Diesel, the English Eddie Murphy...!!!"

"When we were Kings" Charlie, Gary and Ruff!

Gary dominated pro for a spell, I recal watching him race at Waverdale (circa 85/86) and he'd not practice one single gate or even bother to go around the track, he would stare out the other pro's practicing and then simply out drag them outta the gate for a humilating win...!

Super fast, super powerfull, controversial, full on attitude!!! :twisted:

Charlie was famous for his showboating antics and being Mr. Bling "Pimp daddy" of the day with his flash cars and get up... He would 360 (and 720) most jumps, including the doubles at the Marseille BMX worlds in 1990...! :shock: most people were snapping bikes over this jump (including Neal Woods) Charlie said he would twist it, the yanks scoffed, the Ozzy's cried laughing and then Charlie cranked full throttle and pulled it perfectly, nose down landing an' all!!! Outstanding for the day...

Jason Maloney!!! One of the few experts in BMX to get a handsome salary (from Raleigh)...

Craig Schofield with his old ride, a very rare (and I mean rare!) Raleigh team burner...

This bike was one of two hand built in the UK for Big named US pro's at the time "Toby Henderson" and "Jeff Bottema" circa 1978 when they visited the UK to help promote BMX... they literally rode the bikes once and said it was a piece of Sh1t!!! lol...

Craig grabbed it from Raleigh in 1982 and raced it twice and snapped it twice as it was made from 731 Reynolds tubing (brittle stuff!)...

Classic mock Raleigh burner pose!!! (almost as good as those Tenerife powerslide shots!)

Siddy Salisbury was offered 500 pounds from Craig Schofield if he'd jump the big step up... Siddy tried all day to get the bottle up but ended up telling Craig to do something to him self...?
