Trials riding on Richard and Judy (UK)

Hey,

I aint been here for a while. hope everyone is good!

Just dropped by to tell you’s that this monday (5th Sept), we will be doing some riding on Richard & Judy.

I’ve heard riders are myself, Si, Trev, Amanda and Richard.
By the sound of things, we will have a bit of a trials course in their car park, and Trev is going down to help them sort that out.

The show airs between 5 and 6pm. If anyone can record it and put it online that would be great!

Thanks,

Joe,

My Sky+ is set to record it :wink:

BTW Joe will you be at Scarborough on Saturday?

Arggg!!! Sorry Gary! What did I tell you about my organisation! I’m working, and then camping in a Forest with my mates lol.

As for the show, yes, our slot has been cancelled :frowning:
I was told it was due to insurance, it must be the same thing as you, Amanda. Its a real shame, it would have been great! Never mind, the researcher still has my number and I told her to contact me any time she wants a unicyclist :stuck_out_tongue:

Joe,

Richard and Judy is on Channel 4. I know this from when Joe Marshall was on their show; I think they must like unicycling. (The video of that is in my gallery video section)

BTW Danny is this you? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/somerset/4136358.stm

Yes. That actually happened last year (and was reported in at least 3
local papers at the time, I didn’t think to contact the BBC), but when a
local TV journalist wanted to do a piece about cyclepath safety last
month and heard about the fishing line this was a story she particularly
wanted to cover. It was broadcast about 3 weeks ago on BBC1 and was
immediately picked up by various other media.

The day after the broadcast, one of my colleagues heard a discussion
about it on the radio. A police spokesman stated that the police were
investigating. I wish they could have been bothered to do some
investigating a year ago.

Its a damn shame, I was really looking forward to it, but they are keen on trying to organise the feature in the future, so I hope I’ll be invited back.

Why does that not surprise me?

'tis a shame but TV’s like that. Please inform us if it’s back on. (Sky+ recording now cancelled)

Well, we seem to be back on!

I dont wanna speak to soon, but we have arranged to film on Tues (13th). Im not yet sure how many of us there is goin to be yet.

The segment will be aired on Friday16th, hopefully!

Lets hope this one is pulled off! :slight_smile:

Joe,

Nice one you lot!

Keep us all posted (I’m sure you will anyway!)

T.

My Sky+ box is cautiously ready and waiting :wink:

It was an incredibly strange day, having the cameras following you around everywhere, and having to play up to the cameras. We had to do every trick about 5 times because the cameraman kept wanting us to get closer & closer to the camera! This was like tens of thousands of pounds worth & I got so close to pedal striking the thing on several occasions! I quote “Don’t worry we’ve got loads!” :roll_eyes: .

It was really ace, and should make a really cool short vid for the section on the show. They’re using footage from U2 to big up the section, so that’s what dans referring to on www.sykoproductions.com I think.

Can’t wait for Joes pics, some of those should be really good too.

Loose.

good work on getting this exposure for unicycling!

any word on a recording of the segment being uploaded here somewhere?

Friday think i booked thursday :roll_eyes:

Some interesting looking urban locations there, glad you enjoyed it and I look forward to seeing the results.

BTW my Sky+ box is set (again :wink: )

What a great day!

The weather was fantastic, and there was loads of good riding to be had. Its just a shame its ‘Urban’ unicycling, as they took us to real ‘Urban’ areas. We did interviews in a graffitied carpark, which didnt smell too good where I was! Still, I cant complain, it would have been good to also ride in some tourist/famous areas, or next to landmarks, such as outside the Palace, the wheel, Houses of Parliment (Big Ben) and Downing St. Maybe next time :stuck_out_tongue:
Loose told me, and I rememeber from being odnw there, the riverside, quays etc is ment to be great for trials. I do believe Joe M organised a ride there… maybe its time for another :wink:

My dad didnt get many pics, and of them, most of them wernt too good. (I dunno why, but he just cant take ‘action’ shots with my camera :angry: )

Anyways, my pics are here

Enjoy, and hopefully someone (Gary :stuck_out_tongue: ) could post up the video at the weekend.

Richard and Amanda, I’m guessing yous got home ok, as you posted on here. I didnt get home till 10. Got the train from Kings Cross at 4.35 and got into Newcastle Central at 9.30, then another 30mins on a Metro home. It was worth it though, hopefully the VT will be great :slight_smile:

Joe,

Doh, ran out of edit time!

NOTE: no branding! We had to wear unbranded tees, and I got my 661 shorts taped up, along with our leg pads and helmets… Richards actually looked cool though! Stelth sponsorship!

Joe,

Ah! No wonder I didn’t recognise you at first, Mr 661-underpants… :smiley:
