We are back with the Top 5′s feature, intended to be a light hearted read in contrast to the more serious interviews on the site! And James McGraw doesn’t disappoint, always down for a bit of fun and banter! Read on!

Tricks to do daily:
Gliding stick bitch or junk yards, what ever you wish to call them to switch pivots.
Stubble ducks
Nose wheelies
Back packer combos
I always have a new idea I try everyday some good some seriously suck.

Places to ride:
I almost always ride in my tint shop’s Garage. Its a controlled environment I have kids so when I get to ride I want to make the most of it with no distractions thats why I almost always stay indoors.
I have a great outdoor spot and my basement as well.

People to ride with:
No one likes me cause I snake too much :-) lol.
I usually ride alone but Brian Gavigan AKA yellow comes down to ride with me when he can, as well as the Colorado flatjams crew.

Websites to check:
Everyday I go to Flatmattersonline and Global-flat to see whats up.

Snaking techniques:
Look for British guys that wear gloves and be sure to get in their way, also watch for someone to get ready go and make sure to cut them off while always looking forward. (editors note: Don’t I just know it hahaha -ref- Guru jam Practise)

Contests:
This year AM Flat Circuit, Trans Jam, Bike days in Switzerland, Fise in France,
The Worlds, and some of flatland world circuit.
Also if there was a good contest in England, I would maybe go to that as well LOL :-)

Bikeparts:
London Bikes, Profile, Odyssey, and Ares tires

Movies:
Gone in sixty seconds, Hangover movies, Iron man movies.
Most movies that are based on true story’s I always find entertaining.

Video parts to watch:
I have a few videos out there on vimeo my “year in the life” has alot of good stuff as for everyone else.
I don’t have a collection I watch whats posted daily, but I have been known to watch Uchie, Hiro, J Dub and Jason Ploudre’s video more than once.

Favourite riders:
Uchie, Vicki, Hiro, J Dub, Jason P, Kevin Nikulski, Thomas Noyer and I seriously like to watch Matuis B

Bike companies:

Things your hating on:

People who talk shit Its flatland we all have something to offer and we all put alot of work in to it.
