Beside Myself

ardelean-reynoldscrop

Since I was 11 years old Lee Reynolds has been my favorite rider. Aside from Brian Blyther, I feel like Lee and fellow Brit Craig Campbell were the first freestylers to “have style”, if I may be so bold. They did fewer tricks, but better… a trait that seems to have come full circle for those of us who can’t get enough Chase Hawk or Mike Aitken or Eddie Cleveland.

As you can imagine it was an honor for me to meet Lee this past weekend at the Old School Reunion and watch him kill the vert ramp on his new Verde complete. I told him the story about how, in 1989, I tore a photo of him out of a magazine and and sent it to Haro with a self addressed stamped envelope, hoping for an autograph. Lee, being the gentleman he is, signed and returned it to me and that gesture has stuck with me for the last 20 years.

Look for a full length Lee Reynolds interview coming soon on Defgrip.
