Is there anything you wish would disappear from bmx?Im not sure really, the whole tight jean thing is a bit annoying but i guess it's just a fasion that will come and go, but i'll have to agree with Ashley that kids need to know more about the roots off BMX, im not saying im Mr Roots but a little bit of knowledge wouldn't go a miss with these Jabronies.

Is there anything you think needs to make a come back in bmx?Nope, i believe that bmx is just like how it used to be, but that view isn't the one portrayed in magazines and on tv, there's still people out there that still are riding there bikes and having fun and not worrying about where there gunna place in there next comp or what t-shirt they should wear for a photo shoot to earn the most money. FUCKIN RUBBISH!!!

First memorable picture you saw in a bmx mag?I really cant remember, it would probably be when Hoffman built the first mega ramp thing and he got towed by the moto bike, he went so high. Pretty much every picture of Hoffamn was crazy back then, the best vert rider ever!!!
