Anything embarrassing happen to you in BMX?
I’m sure there’s a lot more but one time I was getting mad at a contest. And I threw my bike and I got my pants stuck on the peg. Doing that was so embarrassing in front of… I don’t know how many people. I’m sure there are plenty of others.

Anything embarrassing in your life… ever pee your pants or anything?
One time I had to run to the bathroom, because I was gonna shit my pants so bad… right in the middle of class. I was like “I gotta go to the bathroom. Can I go? Can I go? Can I go?” And I just ran, holding my pants. It was the worst.

Obviously you’re a bit older now, is there anything you miss from when you were a kid riding your bike… when you were first getting into BMX?
Yeah, I guess just hanging out with my friends from school. I always went riding whenever they went out. It’s something I would like to do now. Even now, I still kinda wanna hang out with those people that I grew up with. But I have no regrets. I think I did better than just hanging out at a park.

Anything you dislike about the BMX industry?
Just companies lately. They’ve just not been fair at all. They’ve been copying shit and playing dirty and that’s not what BMX is about. What I like about BMX is we are all friends. We all work together to have fun and make this thing blow up. I think some people are forgetting that.

Is there any music you like, that you think people would laugh at you for… like, embarrassing music?
There’s this Spanish band, Los Delicuentes. It’s weird music. They kinda mix flamenco with some other stuff. I like it but I found out one of my other good friends is a big fan, so I don’t feel bad about it. But I haven’t been listening to new stuff lately so I can’t tell you more.

One time I had to run to the bathroom, because I was gonna shit my pants so bad… right in the middle of class. I was like ‘I gotta go to the bathroom. Can I go? Can I go? Can I go?’

What’s your favorite TV show?
Any Discovery Channel show is so entertaining. So many interesting things. People building bikes or destroying cars is so cool to watch. You get to see how they do the stuff, how they work on the metal and how they fix so many things. I like how they can do all those things with tools and their hands. Like, there’s not a special machine for it. You see how it looks at the end and it amazes me, for sure.

When’s the last time you lied?
A while ago, it was at the end of my relationship. I was becoming a person I didn’t wanna be. I wasn’t being fair at all. That was pretty much the last time. I didn’t cheat or anything, but I just wasn’t being who I am. I never lied and I was doing it. I was becoming a person I didn’t like so hopefully that was the last one.

When’s the last time you cried at a movie?
I never really cried at a movie but there’s a few that make me almost cry. Lately I’ve been in that mood where pretty much anything can make you feel weird. One would be that Cars movie.

That cartoon?
Yeah, at the end, haha. I was in an airplane and I was not in a good mood at all. It made me feel like kinda happy.

Last time you felt like you were wasting your life away?
Pretty much any day you’re not happy. If you’re not doing whatever you want, you’re kinda wasting your time. There have been times when I wasn’t in the mood to do anything and that’s a waste. Of course you can’t always be always happy but you should find something that goes with your day.

How about a little word association?


Someone who’s gonna be there.



Good times.


Flying high.

Bad weather.

You could say bad food too.
Yeah that too.

People are gonna kill you for that. Fly Bikes.


Good work. Keeps me working. Motivation.

What size shoe do you wear?

What’s your favorite etnies shoe?
I used to like Joe Rich’s… and for now, RVM. I’ve been riding those lately and they work pretty well.

What plans to you have for the rest of the year 2009?
Travel as much as I can and my main thing is filming, so I’m gonna focus on that as much as I can. Hopefully by the end of the year it’ll be enough footage to make a really good part. That’s the main goal for the year. Of course I will go out to contests but it won’t be a main thing.

Any other projects you’re working on besides the Fly video?
The Empire video. Right now that’s the main thing, because there’s going to be some film in the Fly Bikes video so there’s some guy we have to do it with them. And we didn’t even start it yet. So the Empire video is the main thing for now.

Any last words?
Just “thank you” for being over there. Thanks to my family because they’re always there to show me the right thing. Pretty much all my friends that are there for whenever I’m not doing well. Thanks to everybody.
