How do you think your riding would be different if you didn’t have a brother to ride with?
Dillon: I might have done martial arts more if Shane didn’t get me into riding. As long as I’ve been riding, we’ve been riding every day together, unless he goes out of town, or on vacation. We could go ride a curb for three hours, or go to a vert ramp and be scared as shit but try to ride it. It’s weird thinking about that.
Shane: We bounce tricks off each other, and we end up unintentionally riding like each other. If I didn’t have a brother, I’m not sure. I’d still be doing the same shit; I just like to grind.
Dillon, do you feel that your consistent use of metal pegs has been influenced by Shane?
Dillon: For the longest time, I would say Shane played a big influence on me running metal pegs because that’s what he ran. Then a few years back he started running plastic pegs here and there when he would come to some things. When they were on his bike I definitely messed with them and they were awesome. But metal pegs are what I have been riding since day one and what I prefer on my bike.
What’s the worst thing about having a brother?
Dillon: We have the same t-shirts since we both ride for the same companies. We don’t really have problems.
What’s the best thing about having a brother?
Dillon: Constantly having someone to ride with. Keeps us motivated.
Where do you see other, as far as riding together, etc. in five years?
Dillon: Still to that day.
Shane: I’m hoping for the same. I’ve been doing well for myself outside of BMX…
Dillon: I mock the lifestyle that he’s got. My job isn’t as good as his, but we live within our means.
Shane: I feel like I could fall into the old salty bike rider. But he’s still stoked, and it gets me stoked to learn new shit.
Dillon: It’s not always true that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
