Despite knackering his ankle no less than three times, Nicky Howells still had something of a productive year, smashing it at both War of the Roses and War of the Thistles, the Vans Shop Riot and last weekends Crossfire Christmas Jam, getting European coverage on the eS Footwear mission to France, and producing a short section on the Bristols Finest DVD which can be found stuck to the cover of the latest mag.

Keep an eye out for a lot more from Nicky over 2010, but until then, take a minute to read over what he made of 2009 now...
