Tom Stretton

Tom is a fab BMX rider. Mixing great flat and park riding he has his own steeze which is bloody great to look at. Mixed in with his highly technical riding are some moments of spontaneous danger which keep you on the edge of your seat. I feel that Tom's talents aren't really recognised on an international scale in the way that they should be. He also used to be very 'scene' and wear a pink bandanna, it is very funny to look back on. I was recently watching John Young's video Steadfast and it both reminded me of this moment and Tom's old dressing habits. Also one time a non riding friend of mine was so impressed with Tom's riding ability that he offered him some class a drugs at a nightclub, which Tom, being the professional he is, politely declined.
