3. What do you think about BMX community?
I love how you can go across the world and just because you ride a BMX bike, you become part of the family wherever you are.

I broke my toe back in 2005 in the first stop of the Dew Tour and it didn’t heal until the end of that season. You never know how much you use your toes until you break one! I do hate my broken nose, but people tell me chicks dig scars…

No, cows go moo!

It pushes people to film better footage and helps progression for the sport, plus gives people a chance to win money.
7. Who would you like to thank?
My parents first and foremost and my family, everyone who came out to support Extreme Thing and every other event that I’ve done over the years! MTV Tr3s, MTV Latin America, Wilmer Valderrama and Jessica Acevedo for believing in me and making The Ricardo Laguna Project a realitym and expose a new audience to the world of action sports! All my friends who have been there – you know who you are, thank you!
