You know Anton Örn Arnason is one of those guys who just can’t stop riding their bikes even if the weather is cold like in Iceland. In 2012 he came out with several really sick edits and I simply have no idea how many will there be in 2013. We caught with him for this new installment in our 7’s interview, that you can read after the jump.
1. Name, Location, Sponsors.
Anton Örn Arnarson, I live in Reykjavik the capital of Iceland.
I’m sponsored by Muvi Action Camera, Rite.Se Mailorder, Sledgehammer Skibikes, also DC and MountainDew here in Iceland.
2. The best place to ride.
My street spots here in Iceland are the best. They’re not crowded of people and there’s almost no security.
3. What do you think about BMX community?
Do you mean here in Iceland or worldwide?
4. What was your worst injury on or off your bike?
Back in 2008 when I face planted without a helmet, broke my teeth and knocked out. Taking your shoulder out of joint is also pretty nasty.
5. Tell a joke for kids.
I asked my wife to let me know next time she has an orgasm but she said that she doesn’t like to call me at work.
6. What is your opinion about mellonBMX and online BMX contests?
Awesome. I’m diggin their Facbook page. They do always keep you updated with the newest BMX videos online.
7. Who would you like to thank?
My sponsors and my friends who still wanna ride bikes! People are getting so lazy these days… it’s prolly the fuckin cold weather that’s keeping them off their bikes.
