Being on SX is difficult to describe. I have never had so much interaction with a company before. What most people will probably never know is that Bill puts his heart and soul into this company. He is a true BMXer at heart and loves being at the races to cheer on the team as well as have a good time. It has been amazing to be able to represent not only an amazing bike, but an amazing company.

Favorite thing about Supercross: The amazing bikes and products that Supercross continues to bring to the market. Not only are they thought out, but there is thought put behind the design and look of all the parts. Amazing brand to be a part of with a family atmosphere that is always welcoming.

Riding Crew/Trainer: So many people here in NC. Meaker, Tezar, Biddle, Calvin, Shady, Murray, Moore, and whoever else wants to shred.
Favorite Track: Rock Hill, SC – Rockford, IL – Louisville, KY
Favorite Race: Something about Louisville that makes it my favorite
Best thing about BMX: BMX Family. I have made so many friends around the world and it’s always the same thing. If you need something or a place to crash, BMX family is always there for you. It’s like a secret society.
Worst thing about BMX: Parents getting upset with how their kid places at a race. Trust me, nobody likes to lose and getting upset with them doesn’t help. Remember why you got involved in BMX in the first place. For the Fun of it.
Pet Peeves: Bad brakes on a bike. Any sort of rattle on your bike. It will drive me crazy.
Hobbies (Besides BMX): Any type of bike, BMX, MTB, Road. Love Cars of course.
Favorite Music: Anything but Country and current day hip-hop. Mainly classic rock and hip hop that you can actually understand.
Favorite Food: Sushi and Cookies. (not together though)
Favorite Drink: Water and Coffee ☺
Guilty Pleasure: Playing dumb games on my phone like candy crush. It gives my mind a rest

Your Hero: Anyone who applies themselves to achieve what they want out of life.
