The Paul Smith Column
written by Paul Smith


Happy New Year to everyone, and im pumped to say 2010 started of with an awesome weekend in Charlotte NC with the debut of the Gravity Slashers FMX tour.

The Charlotte crowd was treated to a talented night of 2 wheel entertainmentthat included Keith Weinman's amazing trials skills, the 50 50 BMX team shreading the 1/4 pipe, and 8 of the nations top fmx riders.

I was the 4th rider out and was having a good run with a KOD, one hand indy, tweak air, rock solid, look back hart, and then kind of a week no foot nac ... this was my weak point, and what kept me out of the finals ... I was not happy!

I did have a chance to redeem myself in the whip contest ... it was tough doing whips metal to metal, but I was letting it hang out and was able to take the win.

I get two days of and then its the long drive from florida to maine ... 22hours in the van for the 2nd Gravity Slashers event in Portland... hope to get some practice in tomorrow and get my tricks polished !

Hope everyone has a good week and ill let u know how next week goes.
