Which size BMX did you start riding on? I started on a 16″ redline.
When did you move up to a 20″ BMX and was the adjustment difficult? I just recently switched to a 20″ about a month ago. The switch is a little wierd at first but the bikes go so much faster and higher its a fun transition up to a 20″ for me.
What made you decide to make the switch to a 20″? I just thought it was time with my age and riding ability.

Flatland BMX School in Germany

0

Markus Schwital is a flatland BMX rider from Germany. This summer he is organizing a flatland school for beginner riders. If you are interested in getting into flatland this sounds like an awesome opportunity!

BMX Flatland School Germany Summer 2014

Here is some info that Markus sent in about his idea of a Flatland School:

“Let me explain you my idea: When I was a kid I also went to a BMX Flatland School that was organized in the next bigger city quite close from my village. I was so happy to be a part of it and at the and i won the small Flatland School Contest .. that was awesome. So now I´m riding my BMX for 10 years and decided that i will do the same great thing this summer – a BMX Flatland School for kids that are new on their bike. Today I designed my first logo for the school and I´m still on the search for sponsors that could offer a few gifts that I could give away as prizes for the winners of the BMX Flatland School. Would be awesome if some company could give me a little support to make my event and the final contest an unforgettable event for the little riders.”

BMX Groms Interview with Brady Baker

0

Young BMX Rider Brady Baker interviewed by BMX GromsWhen Brady Baker is on his bike, it is clear he is having a blast.  Seeing the kind of variations 11 year old Brady is pulling, over large jump boxes with a solid amount of air, you’d expect be nervous. But when you’re watching Brady it’s a pleasure, he seems totally in control, he is consistent and he’s having fun. When we saw Brady at the Wheelmill “Next Gen Jam”, the only time he had is helmet off, was to get his picture taken for this interview. He never stops. What goes on in this kids head? Keep reading and find out what makes Brady go off!

Name: Brady Baker

Age: I just turned 11 in January.

Where you live: I live in West Long Branch, NJ

Any Sponsors? Kid Dynamite, Bell Helmets, Merritt, Unit and SISU Mouth Guards

What size bike do you ride?  I ride an 18” bike.

What size of BMX did you start riding on?  I started out riding an 18”.

Now that you’ve turned 11 are you starting to think about moving up to a 20″?  No. I am only 70 pounds and am on the small side.  My 18” fits me perfectly.  I can do all of my tricks on a 20” too but the 18” is much more comfortable.  If I ride a 20” when I am 11 or when I am 13, to me, it doesn’t really matter.

To appreciate this picture take a moment to locate Brady's right hand. Boss.

To appreciate this picture take a moment to locate Brady’s right hand. This is how he does his variations. Tweaked.

How old were you when you started to BMX and what motivated you to start riding?  I started racing BMX when I was 5 and decided last year that I wanted to ride park and trails instead.  I went to a skate park in Missouri when I was younger and met DMC. When I saw him shredding the park, I was hooked! Then I started following Brett Banasiewicz and Scotty Cranmer and I really wanted to ride like them someday.

How much time do you spend practicing on your Bike?  I am really lucky to live so close to The Incline Club. My mom takes me and my brothers there about every night.  In the summer I ride both park and trails everyday.

What gets you really stoked to go out and ride BMX?  I think about riding all the time.  As long as I get good grades I can keep riding. That is my ticket to ride every day.

Favorite Type of Riding? Favorite type of riding is trails.  I can’t wait for winter to end so I can get in the woods and start digging and getting stuff ready to ride! Second favorite is park.

You recently jumped down the huge step down at the Kitchen for the first time, how scary was it and how did you feel when you landed it?  One of my best memories ever! I was scared but finally went for it and made it! Great knowing that I can jump something that big.  It gives me a lot of confidence on other big stuff. I can’t wait to go back and ride that again! I wish it wasn’t 12 hours away.

What tricks are on your list to learn next?  There are a lot of tricks I want to learn.  I am practicing double tail whips, decades and flairs and maybe a flip whip this year!

BMXER Brady Baker BMX Superman Air

This is how Brady does Superman airs – fully Extended. Yes, he is probably smiling. When this kid rides he has a blast.

If you could ride with any pro for a day which one would you choose?  I ride at The Incline Club and I get to ride with Scotty Cranmer a lot.  If I had to choose someone, it would be him.  I got to meet Brett Banasiewicz and ride with him.  He is definitely on my list of favorites. I really love riding trails so I would have to also include Chris Doyle. I feel like I’m leaving a lot of people out.  There is just too many to list. This is a hard question because I look up to so many riders.

Have you ever been injured from biking?  I have never had a major injury.  I have fallen a bunch of times but have been lucky so far.  I busted out my front teeth but I was able to ride the next day!  Since I lost my teeth, I always ride a full face and was stoked on the hook up from Bell Helmets that I got recently.  I ride with the Full-9 helmet by Bell and I feel really safe.  I also wear a SISU mouth guard that helps protect my teeth. The SISU Mouth Guard team has been great with hooking me up with their mouth guards.

If you keep riding BMX, what would you like to be doing 10 years from now?  I don’t really have a specific plan.  I just hope to be riding in ten years.  I am having a great time now and just ride because it’s what I like.  I would love to ride for Rockstar Energy someday, that would be really cool.

What is your best BMX memory?  I have a lot of cool memories but a good recent one was meeting Brett Banasiewicz at The Kitchen Skatepark, then jumping that step down….that was awesome! Best weekend ever!  I also have so many great memories from riding trails last summer.  The trail scene is amazing!  Being outdoors, digging, riding and hanging out with friends is what it’s all about!

Do you have any advice for kids your age or younger who are just starting with BMX?  My advice to kids my age would be ride because you love it, ALWAYS be nice to everyone and give it your all every time you go out and ride. If you are always competing against yourself, you always progress.

Anything else you’d like to share?  I love riding and I hope to keep getting better. I have met so many cool people and I just never want the good times to end.  I feel like I have fun every day!

Do you have any shout outs or thanks?  This list could get long…Ok, shout out to the entire Incline Club Crew (you all know who you are) for always helping me out when I need it.  The Incline Club Skatepark for being the best place to practice. Shout out to Merritt for hooking me up with the best parts for my bike.  Big thanks to Bell Helmets for the sweet full-9 helmet, Kid Dynamite for my awesome clothing and SISU Mouth Guards for protecting my teeth.  Big shout out to all the guys from Catty Woods, Boondocks, Dutch, Posh and Area (you all know who you are). Thanks for all your support all the time and the hard work you put in to make the trails the best! Biggest shout out to my mom for taking me to The Incline Club every day and to my dad for all the road trips!! I have cool brothers too, thanks Blake and Beau for being awesome! I know I am leaving people out so big shout out to everyone that supports me. I am extremely grateful for it all!

Thanks Brady!
