What’s the best aspect of your new set-up?
I absolutely love the all black stealth look and think it’s been my favourite set up since I’ve been on BSD.
How long have you had this signature Jonesin’ frame with BSD and is there any changes to the latest version?
I think it’s coming up to 4 years now, and I haven’t changed a thing apart from the colours. Think we got it bang on first T.
What other signature parts do you have with BSD?
Frame, forks, seat, pedals and sprocket. Very lucky!
How did you come up with the decals and designs for your signature line?
To be honest, I said a few words to Dave and he whipped them up and exceeded all my expectations.
Are you a fully 100% BSD rider or do you get support from any other brands?
It’s that busy time of year again with contests back-to-back in Europe; can you tell us what you have you been up to lately?
Just been in between filming with BSD and Doomed, doing bits!
How did you enjoy Budapest? Was this trip your first time in Hungary and would you go back?
First time in Hungary yes, but can say it won’t be my last. I would love to go back without the bike and take the city in. There is a lot of History there and would like to know more about it.
You are currently in Hastings, England for the Battle of Hastings… Can you tell us how that is going?
Those new Carbon rims are sweet; can you tell us more about them?
I was very skeptical about trying carbon rims, unsure why that was, but I think they work amazingly. Can definitely feel the difference when spinning, whipping and flicking, everything just comes around a lot faster. Something to do with the rotational weight but I’ll leave that explanation to the experts!
I hear rumors of some new BSD footage on the horizon, can you give us some insight?
Yup, a team video is in the works, and I am privileged to have witnessed the madness the boys have cooked up!
Anything else planned for you the rest of the year, personally or with BSD?
Finishing up my part with BSD video, and then start a Jonesin BSD video in the new year, and carrying on filming for the next Doomed DVD. Also getting a new kitten, Spaghetti!
Any last words?
Yup! I really appreciate everyone that has supported me and helped me out, or even just given me some kind words over the years! To all my sponsors that keep me rolling and motivated to keep pushing it. BSD, DOOMED, Etnies, Junction 4, I f***ing love you!
