1) Where did you win your first competition? How old were you?

A. I think the first contest I won was the spine mini at the BMX Worlds in Cologne, Germany. I was about 17 at the time, it was one of the first Pro contest I had done so I was pretty blown away to have won!

2) How many countries have you competed in? What is your favorite?

A. Iv been all over the world riding from Europe to the U.S. Malaysia, China so many places its all been sick! But if I had to choose one I'd say Malaysia! I loved it there!

3) Have you ever had a major injury? How did it happen?

A. I broke my hip in Paris a couple years ago, I overshoot a flair (backflip 180) transfer landed flat on my side and snapped it clean in half. That put me out for a good year! Knocked some teeth out one time but other than that iv been pretty lucky.

4) What is your favorite tattoo style? Favorite artist?

A. Iv just started getting tattooed at Fat fugu a shop in Northampton UK and they guy who ones it Adem (@artbyadem) does a lot of realism stuff and I'm really into that at the minute!! I came across Nikko Hurtado the other day on Instagram and his work looks insane!

5) What competitions do you have coming up? Where can we watch?

A. I Have a couple coming up over the next few weeks! Non are live streamed tho just some small UK ones. I have some FISE stops coming up in a couple of months which are all live streamed you can check them out on www.fise.fr
