Today is the interview day here on Mellon and for all you we have Anthony Watkinson’s interview. I am a big fan of Anthony and his riding so it’s that more awesome to have him up here. Find his best place to ride, worst injury, opinion about BMX community and more along with three action photos after the jump.
1. Name, Location, Sponsors.
Anthony Watkinson, Austin TX right now, Liverpool England is home.
DK Bicycles, Stay Strong, Rampworx, Premiere shop.
2. The best place to ride.
When I’m home, Rampworx with Zack, Alex, Dan, Tomby and the wools.
3. What do you think about BMX community?
The bmx community as a whole is amazing I think, it has some idiots but you get that everywhere. I think everyone needs to worry less about what everyone else is doing and just do you. Do what you want to do, not what you think you “need” to do.
4. What was your worst injury on or off your bike?
Probably on my bike and it was here like 3 years ago, broke my leg, ankle and dislocated my ankle joint.
5. Tell a joke for kids.
The other day i went into this butchers….he said “I’ll give you £10 if you can reach those 2 pieces of meat up there” I replied “I’m not betting” he says “why??”
“Because the stakes are too high.”
6. What is your opinion about mellonBMX and online BMX contests?
It’s good, I’m into the online contests, gets kids involved and motivated to go out and have fun with there friends and make something sick.
7. Who would you like to thank?
Like to thank DK, Stay Strong, everyone at Rampworx and Ben at Premiere, Taylor and Kai for putting in work that day in Columbus and Mellonbmx for this. Anyone else I’ve missed I’m sorry.
