Right back to doing tricks on track bikes again. Leaving Andy Sparks light years ahead of the curve when it comes to technical ability and his insanely deep bag of tricks. Not only is he mad decent on 2 wheels, but he’s just about the nicest dude you’ll ever meet. If you want to get to know Andy a little better, we suggest you check out his video bike check below.
