Ian Brown made an appearance here in Malmö last friday and did a great gig at KB. Amazing performance from a true legendary man.
This was one of the best spots we had here in Malmö. It was up and running with just two barriers first and that lasted a few years but as soon as we started to develop the area properly the fun was over. We had a sick barrier spine, barrier spine to bank on the other side, two quarters to wallride with a channel in between, a nice bank to wall with hips on the bank and this fantastic slider bank thing. Oh boy it was good.

Daniel is in his own league doing ollies on tight banks. Here is an example of a backside one in the new issue of Giftorm. The frontside one was run in his interview in Kingpin last year.
