Nick Shredder Smith

So I'm still a little gobsmacked that Nick Smith managed to win M20E on the weekend, at the Australian Nationals. I decided to have a little poke around in the splits, expecting to see a tidy little navigator come through some big brash lads from Aussie swaggering on their home turf. Instead there is evidence of a messy start, considerable time loss early and a lack of smoothness through tight controls. Then the little fella just shreds them, jumping from 7th to 1st in two brutal legs. He loses it at the next one, but Ian Lawford does even worse and nek minnit spot the ginga in the middle of the podium. You little beauty.
