Rep Of The Year 2011

And the winner is..............

Leo Sharp.

The man has put a lot of hard work getting DC back on track in the UK. The 'My DC Crew' project seems to be going in the right direction which is rad.
I may be a bit biased, he did hook me up with the DC Mike Blabac book, as well as all the staff with DC's for our feet.
Congratulations mate, see you in January for your prize!

Commiserations to the rest of you, especially Darren Anderson. He's no longer our rep but he deserves an honorary mention for being a loser.

If you've been in Edinburgh long enough will have definitely have seen this guy about. He's been a roller skater, doorman for shite clubs, a free runner, and a hundred other things. This was taken through his roller skate phase (obviously).
I heard that he roller skated over the Fourth Road Bridge 100 times, 50 forward and 50 skating backwards. It was for charity and the now defunct radio station 'Beat 106' covered it? Not sure if this is true or not, good going if it was.
I'm sure there and many stories about this guy, i'm sure he'd be more than happy to tell you about them if you saw him.

Speedy - jump over a bike, Jamie Johnson, Allan McInnes, and Andrew Brown.
