Default VAN HOMAN Q&A THREAD.



Quite a few people have asked about getting Van on board to do a Q&A thread. I asked him about it and he was totally down. Enjoy!

Just to get this out of the way because it will most likely be asked, could you post a current bike check?

You are ridiculously awesome, and you are pretty much the reason I started riding. Never stop ripping shit up.

why havent you given in to the brakeless trend yet?

do you ever ride in the midwest?

how do you feel about kids who cant manual a block or jump a nice big set of trail, but can tailwhip on flat ground?

oh and you are one of my favorite riders, and im psyched that you are willing to answer my questions....

First and formost, Van- You will always be my favorite bmxer, in all aspects. If i ever come to 2X4 (long way away), im going to hug you, pure respect.

anyway, how does it feel to have, what many (including myself), consider the greatest bmx video part of all time?

(case and point)

You ever consider playing poker professionally when you cannot ride anymore?

Completely agree with this. You're one of, if not the biggest, influence on my riding.

I remember an ad Schwinn did a long time ago where it had a photo of each member of the pro team and a little list of current accomplishments. Next to your picture it said something like "street god." Looking back on your carrier,how do you feel about statements like that. I think to most all of us would agree that it's an accurate and earned statement.

what's the sickest spot you've ever ridden?

what's one thing you never imagined you'd do, but has been made possible because of BMX?

how are you SO good!?

Holy shit, I was just thinking about how cool it would be with a Van Homan Q&A.. You've been my favorite rider since I got into bmx, and like already stated one of the biggest influences on todays streetriding..
I got 3 questions:
1. How did it feel to ride in the xgames?
2. Why did you start to ride street, and where did you get inspiration for your riding?
3. Probably been asked this before, but whats up with your tailwhips? Did you just learn them counterclockwise or what?

BTW. That barspin-gap to icepick grind in the Fitlife video may be the sickest thing I have ever seen, props..

You have possibly the strongest frame ever, and I own it. so nice!

You're an amazing rider dude!

I see your attitude is really really good.

How does it feel to be Van Homan?

Van did you get knocked out when you hit your head 180'ing that 13 set?

You are a BMX God.

My question would having a light (under 25lbs) bike scare you? Seeing as you do so many insane gaps, I would assume you gave up caring about your bikes weight, and focused mainly on strength. Am I correct?

Who is your favorite rider from good'ol UK ?

AND

Where is the best place you've rode in the UK (providing you've ever visited the place)

Love your style, my optional question being, are your muscles bigger than edwins? haha =)
