    Hey Rob, I had a dream about you a few weeks ago. It was you, Spiderman, ScrappyDoo and I were all riding, but Scrappy had to jet to go hang with Scoob but you and Spiderman were killing it! If I win the trip to come ride with you I can't promise to bring Spiderman, but I'll try. I think that would be badass....later. _ DJ Loertscher

I have always had a dream of going to greenville, but my parents never let me drive down there. They said it was too far. my parents have no idea what this would meen to me. I love BMX its my passion. If I win this it would be a dream come true to come shred with you at the unit and maybe jaycee park. Oh, darden at orlando you killed it best run ever seen.

    hey im jeff lemak from Conneaut Oh im 19 and this is why i want to shred with you.there is nothing greater than riding your bike with friends and having a good time, even better that it is with rob and his friends and at the unit! couldnt be any better. Iv been to jaycee park and just had good times with all the locals and just wanted to ride the unit so bad while I was down there it just looks like a playground with endless possibilitys. There is no other feeling than riding and having fun on your bike having a good session throw in rob and his friends you got your self a dream coming true. that is why i think you should pick me and my good friend shane to come and shred with you and your buds.

    alright rob. i'll cut straight to it. i have looked up to you for a long time. never have had the chance to ride with you. i thought i was gonna get to at warriors of wood but i was too big of a pussy to ride those mountains. haha. i'd love to fly around the unit as fast as i possbly can. im coming home in a bag. haha. i swear i will do a flair bigger than i ever thought possible in the last day. like mirra and nyquinch style and shit. i got one about 4 feet out the other day but i swear i'll go ten feet. ask my friends. when i say i'll do something i'll do it. ever seen a fat man flair ten feet out?? want to?? lifetime supply of cookies. omg. i can only imagine how much fun i could have at the unit. really really really fast. i'll die. lol. so i have no sob story about how i live in the middle of nowhere and have nothing and all that stuff. but i can really ride and i'd love to ride the good stuff you guys have out there. i guess all i can say is i love to go fast and you guys got some stuff i can do it on. haha. and i need help with my 720's. yours are the best and i want them. PICK ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Mr. Darden,
    I live in Cadillac Michigan. A city of about 11,000 people and no bmx scene. Our park as a 4ft mini and a 2 foot box jump and thats it. The bikers in this town consist of just me and my friend erinn. We do what we can to progress and represent our great sport in our town but all our efforts have been in vain. I'm not writing this to say we deserve to win and have the chance to ride with you and your friends in one of the greatest facilities ive ever seen. I'm writing this simply to say that if you did decide to bless us with this great opportunity, it would be the single most greatest thing that could ever happen to us in our entire lives. We love this sport and we would love to blessed with this opportunity.
    Thanks. -Lucas Keway

    I am not going to bullshit and get straight to the point. I love to ride BMX it is my whole life and without it I probabley still wouldn't be on this planet Earth. My favorite thing is to ride ramps and Greenville has a lot of them. Thats why I think you should pick me and you gotta represent NOR-CAL!!!!!

    Hey, Rob!!! My name is Kenny and I am from Pinole, CA. I just turned 22 on the 4th of November. I think it would be cool to come out there and ride with you guys!!! I think it would be good to travel to the east coast since I have never had the chance. I currently do the most of my riding at Alameda skatepark or Berkeley skatepark. It would be a nice to change to ride an indoor park since they closed the Vans Skatepark in Milpitas. Well I Hope I get to come out and ride with you!!! THANKS!!!!

    What's up man my names Matt I live in Vegas and I'm 20. I've had the chance to ride with you at lavs and the Xtreme Thing contest and it would be so sick to go out to Greenville and ride the Unit with all you guys. I've never been out to the east coast and greenville is the like the bmx Mecca so I'm down to come out there have some good times and do some bar turns and kick outs. Thanks Rob and Arnette. - Matt Closson

    hey rob my name is aaron armstrong and i am 14 and i live in the small town of tehachapi califorina i think i should be able to go because i love bmx. it is my life. i ride my bike every day. our local skate park in town got shut down because nobody kept up with the ramps so they started to break and so the city shut down the park and they dont know if they will open because of the budget. so me and a bunch of other locals started to build trails but they got torn down every where we tried. so eventually we ended up going to home depot and buying a whole lot of wood and we built our own skate park with a box jump, quarters spines and all that. so if i got picked i would be soooo stoked. also i won two tickets to the private levis demo but i did not read the email in time so they gave the tickets to somebody else...so i will be checking my emails everyday for this. thanks for your time.

    Yo Rob! Im Tyler Harrison from cherokee, nc and im 21 years old. I really doubt i will win this but i thought i would give it a shot. My friend jamie (also 21) and i have been riding since we were 12. i think we should win the trip because we dont have any good parks to ride. we both have always wanted to go to greenville. all of are riden life we have rode here in our home town which consists of two little tiny parks that have just a couple 5ft quaters and some other small stuff. we also have a dirt set of doubles at a friends place and very few street spots. any other places for us to ride is 2hours or further away and we never have the time or money to take a road trip. i personally have only been to like 3 or 4 spots less then 2hours away from home in my bmx life. i think it would be frickin gnar if my friend and i could win this trip to ride the unit, would be such a sick place to ride...maybe learn something new. either way though, thanks for the chance to win.

    Hey Rob,
    My name is Shamus Flynn I am a 24 year old Marine Veteran of three tours to the Middle East living down the road here in New Bern NC. Ive been stationed at Camp Lejeune for about a year now and try to ride Jaycee as much as i can. Balancing riding and military life has been easier than you may think so i have been able to keep shredding while i have been serving our country. To answer the question of why i should be selected from all the others is hard, everyone deserves a chance to ride a premier facility and meet a professional rider such as yourself. Ive always liked watching your riding style but what really made me pay attention to you was an interview in which you were commenting on weight lifting and staying in good physical shape. These are areas that are sometimes overlooked by riders and I agreed with your muscle/bone support position. To ride with you in that facility would be a dream come true, even my wife knew what i was talking about when i told her about this contest. Thank you for the oppurtunity to enter.

    hi dude.
    i´m 21 years old, i love bmx like all the guys in the web, i love ride dirt jumps, and some street too, in ramps i suck and i really wanna learn how to ride it well. i live in chile, probably a lot of guys didn´t know that it exist, anyway me and my friends always work in dirt jumps and sometimes we build ramps of wood. there´s no much to do cause the materials of the ramps are so expensive, i mean expensive if you have an empty pocket and you need to asked friend by friend if they can give a little bit of money to help with the construction.
    my dream is travel to other country to do bmx, some places with smooth spots, and if it´s possible a instructor that give it to me a few tips of different tricks (i can´t travell to woodward so this is my chance).
    finally, i don´t care if it´s money about, we have the motivation of ride and that it´s what it count.
    god blesses you all

    Hey, I'm Ryan, I'm 18 from South Florida and I think that my friend Bradley and I would love the go to Greenville with Rob because we've been riding for about a year now, and we ride with a local bmx team and we're till trying to get better and better. Well, I think that riding with a pro would just be a great expierience and give us a motivation to keep pushing ourselves harder to try and get better. Maybe even have him shoot us a few pointers and maybe film a little bit with him too.
