Jackson Goldstone Mini Interview and Spawn Kotori MTB Bike Check

Jackson Goldstone MTB Spawn Cycle Bike Check and Grom Interview

Name: Jackson Goldstone

Age: 12

Height: 4.7″

A rad moment from Crankworx? A rad moment from crankworx is when I did the pre-run for the pros on A-line. They let the winner of the Kidsworx invitational A line race go first before they send the Pro racers down. It was fun and a good chance to see what it’s like to race in front a big crowd.

How long have you been riding MTB? I have been riding since I was 2. I rode the run bike and BMX until I got my first MTB at 5

Have you or do you ever ride BMX? All the time. I started racing BMX at 5 and pretty much raced as my main sport until 10. We still race as a family but my Mom and Sister are into more than me. I have a park BMX bike that I still ride a bit, but it’s 16 inch so a little small.

What is your favourite place to ride? my favourite place to ride is Morzine in France or Woodward west in California. Where I live in Squamish is amazing too.

Best bike memory so far? I have a couple, 1.woodward west mega ramp jump, 2. landing my first backflip. I was super nervous before both those but it was so fun to do.

Next trick to learn? next trick is a 360 barspin, or “truckdriver” I have done them before, but not very consistently

Do you have an ultimate bike goal? probably to win Crankworx and Rampage in the same year. I think you need to be an all around rider to do that, like Brandon Semenuk

If someone was your age and wanted to start riding, what advice would you give? Get the best bike you can afford right away, even if it’s used. It’s cheaper in the long run.

Where you live? Lake Elsinore Ca
You seem to spend lots of time at Ben’s backyard. How far is that from your house? It’s about an hour and 15min all depends on California traffic.
Who do you usually ride with there and how does that influence your riding? I ride with a lot of different people mostly Daniel Sandoval, Ryan Guettler, Kris Fox, Aj Anaya

When do you think you will move up to the next size bike? Maybe in a few months I really have not grown much.
How old were you when you started to BMX and can you remember what motivated you to start? I started to ride bikes when I was 2. My dad would take me out to the little dirt jumps behind our house and let me go crazy. He always knew I needed something more so one day he decided to take me to the skate park. When we pulled up I got to see a young Daniel Sandoval blasting all over the place and thats when I was hooked and found my true love for BMX
How much time do you spend riding? I try to ride at least 3 days during the week and ride all weekend. Hopefully soon my backyard will be built up so I can ride all the time.

What gets you really stoked to go out and ride BMX? Friends and helping others out paying it back.  I have been blessed to have pros help me out with everything in BMX and paying it back and having fun is the best part of BMX
Favorite Type of Riding? Park
You recently went to a pretty large contest at the Kitchen skatepark. What were the best times there? The whole trip was fun it was my first time away from my parents and my first time out of state for a comp. It was so cool to hang out with Brett and to see him on his bike and how he looks at life. I was really excited to be the youngest to do the step down as it was a huge accomplishment for me it was really scary and pushed me to overcome my fears.
Who did you travel with? I traveled with Daniel Sandoval, Ryan Guttler and my big bro Jared Stone
What tricks are on your list to learn next? I would like to take my double whips to the air and also get my flairs higher and bigger.

Kaden Stone young BMX Rider Personal Goal
Seems like you’ve had a pretty good start with BMX. Do you have any goals of what you’d like to achieve in BMX? I like to motivate other kids my age and give them the confidence that anything is possible if you just keep working and pushing yourself. My personal goal would be to go pro and be in xgames when I’m 15 and travel the world with my bike.
Do you have any advice for kids your age or younger who are just starting with BMX? Just find someone you enjoy to have around you and have fun!!! All the tricks will come in time just have fun and keep pushing your limits.

Thanks Kaden!
