Get Spiked!

Simie has done the dirty on the Spiked UK skate tour and put together this ripping video of the comp. Aberdeen locals rule! Big thank you to all involved. Stay tuned for Thistles 1st of May!

Climb edit??!!

Not usually seen on this blog.
Transition wall huggers Oli Boyes and Tom Russell feature in this stunningly well put together collection of clips, by Oli, from a recent trip to Spain. For those who dont know this is bouldering which is climbing up very difficult rocks with nae ropes and just a foam mat to protect if they fall.

You may not have noticed but the skatepark has a climbing wall next door to it, if you see Tom or Oli give them a high five

Mike Tag

I'd like to take this opportunity to raise awareness of a very worthy cause. FBM originator and one of the innovators in modern day street riding Mike Tag has recently been diagnosed with cancer, and like most extreme sportspersons is unable to get health insurance - due to the silly high price they have to pay. Who would give health insurance to an extreme sports athlete?
Like Mike Aitken and Stephen Murray in the past, hopefully the BMX community and beyond can pull together and help out Mike. To help go to FBM HERE and watch Mike Tag's 'All Time Low' part HERE.

One of the great things about BMX and Skating is the friendly environment that surrounds the sports in a variety of manners. I learnt a lot and have made a lot of great friends through riding bikes and it's typical of the bmx community to come together when something as dreadful as cancer hits one of its own.

Big thank you to everyone who came out for the Spiked Undiscovered tour last Saturday. The standard of skating from the Aberdeen locals was amazing, so many lines and tricks went down its hard to know where to start. Simie was in the house filming the comp so stay tuned for that footage to drop.

2nd Tom Simpson (Stylish shredding the whole park, also picked up best line in the miniramp comp)

3rd Ryan Gibson (Consistent ripper sheckled the park to place 3rd)
