Any bike modifications?

I usually cut my bars just a bit because it feels more comfortable for me.

How are you liking life in Spain?

At first it was hard for me to get to a new place without knowing anyone, but BMX is an international brotherhood and people are always open to help you. Now everything is much better.

Favorite meal to cook?

Fried fish, salad and fried potatoes.

Music you’re into right now?

Rock, Hip Hop and sometimes trap

How long do you usually have a bike for?

I can have a bike for at least a year without any issues but I like to do gaps a lot so I tend to be hard on the rims.

How’s the COVID situation been for you?

All the bars or discos I used to go to are now closed, I hate wearing a mask and the police are bothering more than usual.

Plans for the rest of 2020?

I’m working on a new Wethepeople part with my brother @patrick_tilk and maybe go to Costa Rica for the holidays.
