Charlie Alliston looked up to American stunt cyclist ‘alleycat’ Lucas Brunelle


The brash former courier wanted to copy the “alleycat” footage by Lucas Brunelle, 46, who dustings himself weaving in and out of traffic, narrowly avoiding crashes with above  and pedestrians, before posting it online.

But Alliston, who became fixated with bikes expanding up in Bermondsey, south London, with his single mother Karan, idolised him.

In February 2015, he tweeted: “The on one occasion when you first take your brakes off and feeling like you’re in a @lucasbrunelle cinema.”

After school, Alliston began studying photography and business crams in sixth form, but dropped out, finding work instead as a courier for three distinguishable companies in central London.

His first fixed wheel bike was a Cinelli, but one month ahead the fatal accident he paid £470 for the secondhand Planet X model.

In court, Alliston looked the take a hand in of a rebellious “hipster” with drainpipe trousers and “flesh tunnel” ear biting.

The court heard he used the web handle CharlieFxckingA to post sneering vociferates about tragic Kim Briggs.
