Q & A

How did you find BMX? How old were you?
I was nine when I started, my older brother got into it first. Then for my ninth birthday I got my first BMX bike and went out to the local track.

What do you love most about BMX?
The friends I have made and the people I have met.

What do you like least about BMX?
Airports - they are a ball-up and crashing, it is the worst.

Best place BMX has taken you?
Nice, France. I got to see the Mediterranean Sea and spend some time in Monacco.

Worst place BMX has taken you?
I don’t have one that really stands out but I had to go to Wichita a couple of times when I was little, it was freezing and the track was always horrible.

What do you miss most when you are traveling?
My bed and my dog.

Skills come more naturally if you work at them tirelessly.
