I text back “I’m trying to let me wrist heal for Estonia” (hospital had x rayed it and nothing was wrong, so I went to the doctors 2 weeks later and it doesn’t feel right. “Oh there’s a note off the radiologist – you have a chipped the bone.” “Thanks when the fuck was you gonna tell me?”) So Beddows text me again and said “Oh well if the pic was right, it would be for a cover” , pretty sure he was just laying the bait. I thought this may be only chance I get, and any BMX rider wants the cover its an honor! So I text back saying “ill strap my wrist up and take the pain.” It was taken in Burnley somewhere, I saw them when I was going my mates to buy some motorbike tyres. I only saw the tops of them and thought sweet rails. I only crashed once. I kept needing to feel it out, if I over pegs and lent over id be ploughing into the corner of a wall.
