This is Chris Jones after a fall at the Haggerston Park BMX track during Skateboarding Day in London, 2015
BMX track is not a typical terrain for riding your skateboard. It is a rough surface, full of sand and very dusty. Large soft wheels are required just to be able to ride on it. Slam City Skates, who with the help of Nike SB organized the event in 2015, knew that and provided boards with appropriate wheels on the day.
Races around the track were on everyone’s minds that day. It was lots of fun with massive clouds of dust in the air and limited vision, so it was not a big surprise that a number of slams and collisions took place on the track. No one got injured though.
Chris Jones was one of the riders who had some bad luck, but with slams being a regular part of a skateboarder's life, after several seconds of doubt, he was up and ready for another try.
