How can I start this interview, well this guy has been in the UK scene for a very long time. His riding blew my mind in Groundworks, he rolled his way into our minds in the classic inTRIKat Background. And now James White is still at it along with his new sponsor S&M Bikes. I sent a smoke signals across the pond and this is what i got back. As they say over there....Cheers!
