Why why why does it always end up being the stupidest people in control of all the stuff with so much potential. Todays rant is based about Tre Whyte outta the UK to give you a brief overview he is a top tier rider in that region and a top 5 guy for sure if not top 3. Basically the UK has a few qualified entrant spots available to them and they are choosing to not send that allotment of riders. I get it. If you only have squids who cant ride for squat then yeah decline your spots. But that aint the case! With the Manchester facility they have plenty of riders who are competitive and deserve a chance. Thats what makes the fucking worlds the motherfucking worlds! You cant claim to be the fucking best in the world when not everyone is even allowed to enter the race. Tre Whyte hands down fucking deserves a spot on that gate. If he gets beat fair and square Im fine with that and in all honesty I dont see him making a main, but its BMX and if you cant climb on the gate you have 0% chance of winning. By climbing onto the gate your chances have just increased 100%. Fucking tool boxes are in charge of the UK cycling scene and they need to be cycled out no pun intended. Whatever the backroom personal vendetta is I sure would like to know and I could respect them more if they came out and said fuck Tre instead of the political nonsense. And to take it even further I think Kyle Evans and Liam are weak as fuck too. You stay together and you come out and say fuck it Im not riding if my team mate cant ride. Show some fucking solidarity to your fellow countrymen to your fellow fucking rider. Thats the problem its become such a fucking selfish, train your brains out and not give a fuck about anyone. Shit has lost its soul and thats why it will always be a side show. BMX racing will always have the sad issue that when push comes to shove none of these fuckers have a spine and the majority of people are in it for themselves. Sad Sad Sad. Tre-here is to you my man fuck the politics everytime you gate up wherever it may be race with the passion that you and only you can imagine and use that fire to burn the tool boxes working against you. #PeckhamForever

I shouldn't even call it amazing because at this point in my life it doesn't amaze me as much as I begin to expect it. And in learning to expect it, you become sharp and can start to counter the actions of the situation. What is the situation? Well it nearly happens daily sometimes multiple times a day and sometimes it goes for days and weeks without ever popping up. But its basically in a nutshell a person with a piss poor shit ass attitude who just goes out of their way to just be for lack of a better word and to be able to use my favorite word when someone acts like a fucking CUNT. Yeah I said it. If you know me super well like really really well and you can gauge your level of friendship with me right here if you know me enough to know I hate speaking to people I don't know its for this same reason. Because the less people I have to speak with or deal with a day the lesser my chances of meeting one of these asshole people. So if I can have someone else call an order a pizza Im doing it. If someone else can ask the server for a refill of our drinks I gladly let them. I just know that the less I deal with anyone the better my chances of not wanting to explode are going to be LOL. Today a very special person who is a tool absolute insecure fucking tool just went out of his way to prove a point when a point wasn't needed. To enforce his will when it wasn't warranted. I remedied the situation in my own way so he feels he won and he shit talked me and of course behind my back because you gotta have a pair and a spine to at least speak down to me like a man. Thats very much not him. As I anticipated the douchebag moves I began to counter and took the precautionary steps to stay ahead of the idiot. What did he accomplish? Zero. Enough about this clown lets get to the good feel good part of the blog. If you ever are going in on someone or shit talking them behind their backs, Im not perfect Im the biggest hypocrite I know so don't compare yourself to me always be better than me. PLEASE BE BETTER THAN ME! Anyway just be good to people. If you don't understand them you may not know the stuff the backstory they are dealing with or their vision. Be good to one another. Half the time its not going to cost you anything to be kinder to one another. You gotta try harder people and when we all do a slight bit more I know we can make strides. Thats all. Salute the douchebag fucks out there tomorrow you will wake up as your lame ass and Ill wake up as me. Like Puff Daddy would say "Take that"

This is gonna be a sappy post but not really at the same time. I showed up at the trails a few days ago with Matt and I was greeted by my friend Kim Sterling who I havent seen in likely a year. Always a pleasure to catch up with genuine people who care for you. Her son Matthew who I have known since he was an aspiring racer kid at the track and was a ripper in that right with a Worlds main to his credit was there and had skyrocketed a foot in height and had gone from grom to peer before I knew it. Was really awesome to see him getting through the big line at the jumps and just an absolute pleasure to see him making strides and getting after it. A few minutes later this other kid Connor shows up and last time I saw him was exactly a year ago and I always keep track of him because he rips and has a solid future ahead of him. He greets me and is thrilled to see me and just goes into contest mode and is dropping hammers left and right and asking me about doing this trick and that trick. Its one of those subtle respect gestures that we all do at some point in our lives to the guys we look up to or seek approval. Its not in a weird way either you just always bounce stuff off of the OG riders that you know have done it or have perspective on it. It was a trip and definitely a coming of age moment for me seeing him in a whole new light. And again the kid has ripped for years so Im not taking a shot at him at all, it was just cool to see me now view him as another dude who shreds and not a prodigy anymore. Stoked for those guys. I started linking basic lines together there and was having a blast and sure enough Connor asked me to flip the last set and its something I have considered already LOL we both said you first and neither of us wanted to ride that bull. Left it for another day, but that day is soon Im sure. Shoutout to the younger groms all over the scene putting in the seat time to shred hard and outclass us old guys! World is yours boys!
