So kelly was the first to step up to the plate and get onboard with a dedicated q&a thread.


A little bit about kelly...


Kelly is on the eastern pro team, and also rides for DC shoes and staff bmx. All around shreader, go search some of his stuff on youtube, you'll be impressed. Kelly recently moved to pro-town usa to set up camp and start killing it with the north carolina scene and were all glad to have him.


I had the privilige of meeting kelly for the first time at the eastern death of fun premiere in october where the man did a flair in a gorilla costume (head and all) and it literally blew my mind. Keep in mind I was pretty drunk myself and shouldn't have been riding, but it was epic none the less. Ill post up a pic of said gorilla flair tommorow when I pull it off facebook.


That being said, send out some questions and don't be retarded.


Kelly the floor is all yours...

What was the feeling you got when you felt you were finally good enough to get sponsors? Did you brag about it to people who don't bmx (I know I would) How does it feel to tell family members that you ride bikes for a living? Whats your day by day inspiration to try new things?

When you come off of a serious injury (I.e: when you broke your shoulder)
Do you come back, harder, better, faster, stronger? Always?

If somthing crazy happen, like a stupid law was past saying that...
"Kelly Bolton is no longer alowed to ride BMX bikes, he may only ride fixed gears!"
What would you want to be known as in the BMX community?
And would you break the law and still ride?

Keep Killin it!!

I ride to live!
For the street niggas livin with they lives on the line
For young guns comin up durin these times
For police who find drugs let niggas slide
For niggas out slingin like 4 in the night

Haha well I have yet to reach my own standards as a ripper but thanks for the compliment. My favorite trick has to be Tabletops or flairs... i still cant decide which feel better. I look up to a lot of people... there are so many good riders... Van Homan will be forever looked up to but lately its been MIrra... he is nuts.

Staff is an awesome company full of awesome people. Being a west coast guy i didnt expect them to hook it up but they were pumped. I usually just get parts and nic nacs. I have ridden incline club but i need to go more. Incline club is sick.

I kinda just fell into having my first sponsor. I was the lucky end of someone unfortunately getting hurt and there was Eastern backin me up. A lot of people are sponsor worthy... to be "good" enough doesnt exsist in our sport. Its just how you get out there and turn peoples heads. I dont brag.. I try to stay modest and not get over my head. Sometimes I wonder why im sponsored haha there are sooo many good riders. My family is real supportive. They do all the bragging for me haha. New things come into my head every second. People just laugh at my ideas but once and a while they work. I push to find what nobody has done before.

I was fortunate enough to fall into a lucky situation with all my sponsors... and now i just rep them all day everyday. Trying is hard.. just be a cool chill dude and somethin will happen.

When i get hurt I sit around and my mind just goes crazy with tricks and different stuff. I come back with goals and a new passion to ride for sure. Wow thats a good question... I would want the bmx community to just remember that I chilled, I rode, and I tried to push the barrier of what is possible. Lastly I dont give a F*** about the law.

Thanks.

My dad and I rode motocross and I actually wanted to race supercross but we were poor and didnt have the money for motocross. My dad made me launch ramps and taught me how to bunnyhop and wheelie at around age 7... then i was hooked.
