How old were you when you first started riding? What first got you interested in BMX?
I got into a skatepark for the first time at at 3 or 4, I was very interested in the older riders jumping there and decided to try it myself. I’m pretty brave and tough, and that helped to really start learning..
What do your friends think at school? Do any of them ride BMX?
I’m pretty discreet about it and don’t usually talk about it a lot. When I showed pictures or videos at school, everyone got crazy and teachers used some of his BMX pictures during class. I don’t feel embarrassed, but I just don’t like to show off with it.
Do your parents like it? Are they supportive?
My parents didn’t really know much about it at the start, but they love watching me flying around. They absolutely support and back me up. We spend a lot of time at the skatepark or traveling to other places to ride.
What do you think the average ten year old does with their time? What do you like doing when you aren’t riding?
Most 10 year olds are doing the usual things like playing soccer, school activities or things like video games... When I’m not not riding, I like to ride my scooter, play basketball, Monopoly, Fortnite and Brawlstars, and listen to rock and roll music!
Tell us about your FLY BIKES 18" setup? What is your favourite part / feature of your bike?
I’m absolutely crazy about my Sierra 18" bike. What I like most about my new bike is the sound and smoothness of the Magneto hubs, as well as the Sierra frame itself. I think it’s way lighter than my old bike, and helps me go even higher. The new size of the Sierra bars help me ride more comfortably and safely as well.
Which riders inspire you?
The first time I rode with Sergio Layos I knew why I wanted to keep riding BMX! I get inspired by anyone I meet at any skatepark, that’s been a big part of how I learn. But Sergio, is my big inspiration!
What would you like to be doing when you’re 18?
Where do you want to be? I don’t think about the future that much, yet, but for sure, I want to be tripping around with friends towards different skateparks every day!
