I’ve been watching these skaters rip down hills for the past couple of months. The reference to Sonic the Hedgehog was going to happen sooner or later. Gary was kind of the natural choice. He’s the fastest. His helmet is blue and has the right shape. (I just helped the suit along a little bit.) He also likes to curl up into a ball, as you may have seen. 🙂 Flipping through my photos, I found one with enough space in front of him and the pose matches up pretty well with Sonic’s running.
