Great World Championship footage from 1999-Winner Phil Dolan

Just came across on youtube yesterday, cracking footage from Juan Macion at the 1999 Worlds in Madrid, Spain, I don't remember a great deal from this contest, the floor was like that of a building site (not in a good way), and it was so hot, all the contests ran in the late afternoon, early evening. Still the contest went off, Phil Dolan won his second world championship, Andrew Faris was on it for almost the whole contest, apart from the final run where he touched a few times, Nathan Penonzek rode amazing in qualifiers, but the spanish guys got naked before his finals run and totally threw him off. Oh and Faris famously got so wasted in the trophy ceremony, asking for the first place trophy. It's on baco as I remember.
