all time favorite rider is a given, but what's the best non-bmx related story from all the road fools you've been on?

Van,

Not to be disrespectful to any other "pro", but you must be the nicest guy I have ever met. Always down to just shoot the shit with whoever. You represent the sport well and i wish 99.9% of the people who are on the come up would try to be more like you personally, not just riding.

That out of the way, If you were superman, who in the sport is your lex luther???

Thanks, Tommy

van, you've been my favorite rider since the first time i opened an old issue of ride, and the contents page had you doing a bunnyhop barspin over this black flat rail, and that was in like 99 or so.

i heard you are a daddy now, how has that affected your riding? i wonder that since im expecting also.

take care

The Rims on my bike are Proper Rims. I was building up a new bike with all the Gold Fit parts. I already had those wheels in my shop. It all went together so good that I had to rock them.

I haven't gone brakeless because I'm just used to having brakes and I haven't had the urge to give them up yet. Its that simple. Their are some tricks that I could see it being nice not having brakes for, Like barspins on street. However, I think I would have a hard time riding a big set of trails with out them. Not to mention the occasional Fufanu or Abubaca.
I don't have a problem with kids being able to do tailwhips on flat and not being able to do other seemingly simpler tricks. Its all what you grow up riding and what tricks you really put you mind to learning. I'm glad I grew up riding trails and have that jumping back ground but some people just don't have that opportunity or aren't into riding certain things. To each his own I guess.
Oh and thanks I'm glad I'm one of your favorites.

(case and point)
Wow. I don't think I would Consider myself to have the best video part of all time but it feels pretty good if their are people out there who think that. I assume you are talking about Criminal Mischief. I put a lot of time and blood into that part and I'm really proud how the part came out. I did the best I could on the riding end and Derek did a great job on the editing. I shout out to Stew Johnson as well for suggesting the song.

Two by Four is really working out great. I was at a point in my life where I really wanted to do something more. I love being able to help other riders and give back to an industry that has done so much for me. I love doing stuff in the shop for the locals, going on trips with the team and being able to help sell the brands I really believe in.

Playing poker Professionally would be pretty good I guess. I don't think I'm good enough to pull that off but even if I was the bad beats would be to stressful for me to handle. I think i'll just keep it as a hobby for now.
