What is your BMX origin story – How did you get into BMX?
When I was young I dreamt about being a BMX rider, but my chance didn’t come until my friend bought a BMX bike and let me borrow it. It was fun. In 2018, a new skatepark was built in our town and this was the first time where I really had the opportunity to ride a proper skatepark. Then my parents bought me a BMX bike for my fourteenth birthday and I started to live the dream.
