"Haven't we seen you someplace before? Tony Ferguson lipslides backside over painted smoothness. Ottawa gas station."
This was from a Transworld tour of Canada. It was probably Tony's first major bit of coverage. He went on to ride for Plan B and turned pro for Girl.
I figured I needed to end the week with some street skating since next week is going to be Alien Workshop stuff from Photosynthesis. I made a list of the guys to find pictures of and I'm doing the scanning this weekend. It would be tempting to do a week of Rob Pluhowski, but I'm going to mix it up. I forgot about him until I saw the Epicly Later'd and I'm not sure how that happened either since I like Habitat's Mosaic video a lot.
Thanks to Police Informer for including Vert Is Dead in the links.
