I met Chris Doyle and i didnt know it at the time but also Brian Yeagle around when i started riding Imperial Skatepark. I didnt like fanboy all over the place or anything, i just saw them as crazy good riders riding the same park, so i just didnt get in the way. haha Chris Doyle is as nice as can be! Brian Yeagle was crazy as shit and jumped the island part of the park. Nuts!! But anyways, what pros did any of you meet, if any, and/or cool people that are also good riders? What were the pros like that you met, if you met pros? Did you talk with them? Are you friends with any pros?

Well... when i first got into bmx they had that JOMOPRO contest that ALOT of pros went too... i met zack warden but i didnt really know who he was and he pulled up to the park and asked me where the front gate was... and i had no clue and then after i had gotten into the car it hit me... and at the same contest i had snuck in to the pro deck or whatever and met brett bana however you say his name and talked to him and met morgan wade and trey jones.... and i just hung out down there by them all weekend... so that was cool and probably part of why i stayed in bmx... oh and all of them were pretty cool... everyone i had met down there was cool... except for one am that was riding in pro class that couldn't pull his trick... he freaked out and shoved me aside...

Met Garrett Reynolds, Chase DeHart & Steve Croteau down at the Dew Tour in Ocean City last year. Just said hey to Garrett and asked how he did, he laughed and said he ate shit haha. Chase & Steve handed me and my friends a bunch of Fiend stickers and we tried getting them to come shred with us but I think Chase was high or something, he was like "true man true that's what's up man, true true." hahah. they were chill as fuck though.

Met AND rode with Garrett Reeves & Ben Hittle, before they were pro though. Garrett twice actually. He's friends with a dude who used to ride my town a lot and he got Garrett to come here and he was fuckin awesome. Tried to flip a dirt hip, did a 270 table thing, almost nose manualed this long manual pad, and then the second time he did this sickass wallride on the support rails of a rail, did a rail hop to wallride & also 180ed the rail hop (I have videos of those 2 things) and lots of other sick stuff. Ben I only got to ride with for a little, same deal as Garrett, buddy knew him. Did some sick brake/wall plant things and did this huge gap to wallride to gap out. They were all so chill

My friend is good friends with Simone Barraco so he sometimes comes over to ride.
He's really chill.
Also met Stefan Lantschner.

I also know Davide Altobelli he used to be on WTP for a little but they kinda parted ways, think he was on the AM team or something.
He's insane though.

I've meet some of the Fit team at Calabaza's Cyclery in San Jose last year. There was Tom Dugan of course, my outgoing guy. And I know some "pro" locals that I've met before. I treat them like real professional riders cause they're pretty damn good. If you look up FTS crew or Robbie Decelle, the were also on some Lil' Mikey's beeswax promo riding around my area.
