Eighties revival?! Haro demo at the Worlds

1986.. I was at the Poole UKBFA National, competing in the Under 12 class on flat and ramp, and watched the Haro team (Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Dave Nourie), they blew my mind with their energy, and how high they were going, certainly influnced me as a young rider.... 2009, the ex haro team are back and doing a demo at the Worlds this year, f**king awesome!
