I heard about "crazy Matt" being a Southampton legend about 9 years ago when I started riding.
I also was lucky enough to go on my first trip out of England with Matt and a bunch of other guys when I was 16 and it was a trip that I wont forget!
The dude was loose (in a good way) when it came to BMX but he without a doubt was passionate, polite, nice guy that loved his bike and his friends and always had a positive attitude even if things weren't looking that great. He sure knew how to smile.
I was shocked when I heard the horrible news... And gutted that I lost touch with him in the past couple of years.
Rest in peace mate
