Happy kid.

What is your background with BMX?
I’ve been riding for around eight years. I try to ride as often as I can, but I recently messed up my back and my riding time has been cut significantly. I have always enjoyed riding a nice smooth park with some good flow to it. I am definitely not the kid at the park trying be all Dew Tour status—most of the time I am just rolling around and trying to do silly little things. I have worked at Woodward West a few times, and if you haven’t been there yet you need to go. Other than that, I don’t think I have a giant background in BMX, it’s kind of just something I fell into as a child.

What are your goals with BMX in the future?
I would say my goals are to enjoy riding and all it has to offer.

Earliest memory of Ride BMX Magazine?

The first time I picked up a copy of Ride was in the library at my elementary school, I believe. I was really confused and had no idea what all the riders were doing in the photos.

Favorite story ever read in Ride?
There are stories in there? I though it was all pictures…

Favorite photo ever seen in Ride?

My favorite photo is the one that I shot of Dylan Stark. The photo is nice, but just the fact that I had something put in the magazine is what makes it my favorite.

Describe your ideal day of riding…

This is a tough one… Woodward West has always been a favorite of mine, so I am going to say driving up to Woodward with a few buddies, my camera, and a backpack full of film would be my ideal day.

Brett Rohlfing

Name: Brett Rohlfing
Age: 25
Location: Central Florida
Years Riding: Ten, including racing. About seven riding freestyle.

Passing the B's mid 180.

What is your background with BMX?
I started racing BMX in 1999 and did that until 2005. A few years into racing, I started riding freestyle here and there as well. In early 2005 I threw in the towel on racing and have been riding the parks and streets of Central Florida ever since.

What are your goals with BMX in the future?
Keep riding and being involved in BMX for as long as I can.

Earliest memory of Ride BMX
Magazine?
Well my earliest memory is SNAP (Ride’s former sister publication). I used to get psyched for days around the time of the month that I knew it would show up in the mail since I was a racer, but I started getting Ride pretty early on…as soon as I got my seven and a half pound STA500 for $50!

Favorite story ever read in Ride?

Any of the photo features where the camera, film type, shutter, and F stop were listed. I was a photographer before I got into video, so I eat the tech specs stuff up. Not sure if that counts as a story but it is a favorite of mine.

Favorite photo ever seen in Ride?

My buddy Addison Sasso throwing bars over a rail down a 17 set in the rain! One of the most intense situations I’ve ever witnessed and was really happy to see it in the magazine.

Describe your ideal day of riding…

Riding street in Lakeland, Florida, with Jordan Pope and Nails (Chris Schuster). Jordan and I grinding everything and watching Nails jump off huge stuff.

Brandon Means

Name: Brandon Means
Age: 16
Location: Temecula, California
Years Riding: 3

Just like I am one fourth of the Ride editorial staff and ride flatland, Brandon is a quarter of the bloggers and rides flat. Not planned, but pretty cool. -Fat

What is your background with BMX?
I’m a BMX photographer and ride almost every day. I love BMX and the vibes it gives off when riding with a bunch of friends. I am into flatland and street riding the most.

What are your goals with BMX in the future?

I’d love have BMX photography as my profession, whether it is for a specific company, magazine, or freelance work.

Earliest memory of Ride BMX Magazine?
Probably when my brother first starting subscribing to Ride two or three years ago. I always knew there was some sort of Transworld BMX magazine though.

Favorite story ever read in Ride?

I really liked the “The Ramp” section in Ride that they had last year in one of the issues. It really showed the creativity you get out of riding BMX and how different riders have different styles of riding even on the same obstacle in a different scenario.

Favorite photo ever seen in Ride?

I really look up to Jeff Z., Fudger, Mulligan, Fat, and all the other photographers at Ride, but I’m really digging the table of contents photo in the November/December issue of 2009. I’m a huge flatland fan, and also like Kai Kuusisto’s photos. In that same issue I really like the photo Andrew White took of Nathan Williams doing a Luc-E to no hander.

Describe your ideal day of riding…
My ideal day of riding consists of driving down to San Diego or L.A. with a few good friends and riding and shooting photos and clips at a bunch of spots without getting hassled by anyone…something that always happens in Temecula and its surrounding areas, but hey, that’s BMX.

Tommy Verrochi

Name: Tommy Verrochi
Age: 17
Location: New Jersey
Years Riding: Seriously for about five years.

The Incline Club is Tommy's local park, so I'm not surprised that he can whip a spine like this...

What is your background with BMX?
Well, I started out filming for fun. But that got old way too quick. So I picked up an SLR and haven’t stopped shooting BMX since.

What are your goals with BMX in the future?
It would be awesome if photography could become a career of some sort. However, if that doesn’t happen I would still ride and shoot for the fun of it.

Earliest memory of Ride BMX Magazine?
Probably looking at every page and pricing out parts in the Dan’s Comp and Staff catalog ads.

Favorite story ever read in Ride
?
Wow. I read more than a fair amount of the stories in all the issues, and I’ll even go back and reread them a few times when I’m bored. There’s way too many to think of, but if I had to choose one I would say anything from a previous photo issue.

Favorite photo ever seen in Ride?
That’s impossible for me to answer. You guys have your standards for print, and I’m pleased with every photo I see in Ride. They’re all my favorites. Every last one of them.

Describe your ideal day of riding…
Well, It would have to take place in the summer. Preferably some place warm. I’m not too picky where I ride. Street, trails or, park—I’m up for whatever. The only thing that would make it ideal is an awesome crew of riders. If the crew I’m with is having fun, you can bet I am, too.
