    Ron Wilkerson is the king. i like how this interview shows how important Ron was in shaping Freestyle's attitude and reputation. the same idiots who wanted to deduct points from him for "appearance" also bailed out on the sport in the late 80's when their revenue wasnt high enough. At that point guys like Wilkerson, Moeller, and Hoffman completely took things into their own hands and gave us the BMX community what we've got today. those three guys paved the way for almost two decades!

    Ron is one of the very few riders that have been true to the sport, as a rider and businessman. Without him, maybe people would still be riding a kinked quarter ramp. I proud myself of being his friend. Abucaca.
