"You've seen it before, now see it again. Feeble grind to fakie - it's good, but hot. Mark Roach."
This is from the NSA Dallas contest in 1990. Mark got sixth. Jeff Phillips won for two reasons: he was awesome and it was at his own skatepark. Omar Hassan got second, Mark's boss Chris Miller was third, Eric Dressen was fourth and Wade Speyer was fifth.
Mark and Buster Halterman were two of the new faces on the vert scene in the early 1990s. They both rode for Planet Earth. He gets bonus points for wearing the Todd Congelliere shirt.
