Re post of the First shoot with james Matthews with an interview:
Name - James Matthews
Age - 16
Where you live? Nr Callington, Cornwall
What are your goals for your riding career? Racing nationals this year, and see how it goes!
And your life in general? Urmm, see the world, and enjoy other cultures. But career, pilot in the RAF really.
What was your first downhill bike? Kona Stinky Deluxe 05, wicked bike!
How long have you been riding for? Just under two years.
What companies do you represent? None
What would you say your riding style is? Wild and loose!
Why do you ride? Can you give me a reason not to? Good fun, and i'm a bit competative too.
Whats the worst crash you have had? Jumping the bridge on Pleney, haha! Worst though, probably a big stack on the tabletop at Tavi Woods soon after starting out on my Kona. Far too much speed, huge overshoot, front wheel down first to flat, thrown off over the bars so hard that my head knocked the fence post used for signs clean out of the ground! I was knocked out for 20 minutes, 3 broken ribs and a big loss of confidence for a while to follow!
What is the theme song to your life? Benny Hill Theme Tune probably, my life is comody!
Favorite drink? Mutzig for sure.
Favorite Color? Purple or green, can't decide.
Favorite Car? Difficult one... i've got so many! Probably a Pagani Zonda. I'll leave it at that before i write a short book on the topic, haha.
An interesting fact about yourself? I learnt to walk when i was eleven years old, and i can bite through concrete.
If i got as good at riding as you would it help with girls? Without a doubt
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck norris? Hahaa, thats a mouthful! I have no idea... how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck norris?!
Pink or brown? We've had this conversation before havn't we? Front door thanks.
Favourite super hero and why? Superman, because i got the t-shirt from my girlfriends mum one Christmas! Although being able to fly would ruin the fun in those rock gardens. The rest of his powers are pretty cool though!
