What do you look for in protection gear? Comfort? Weight? Quality? Pricing?
Simone Tetsche Christensen: A little mix between comfort and protection
How does it feel showing up at a race with brand new gear?
Simone Tetsche Christensen: Damn awesome, always good to feel fresh at a race!
You ripped your gloves. What do you do with them?
Simone Tetsche Christensen: Probably keep them in a drawer until I realise that I aren’t gonna wear them ever again, then I throw them out.
What’s a product you can advise every rider to use?
Simone Tetsche Christensen: I really like the iXS protection gear I’m riding, it protects a little bit more than other pads I’ve been riding before and you quickly get used to riding with it! Also the Fly Helmets are very good to ride with as well as being super protective!
Do you think certain protection gear should be mandatory or do you leave that up to the rider himself/herself to decide?
Simone Tetsche Christensen: I think it should be up to the rider itself
Any advice to the BMX racers out?
Simone Tetsche Christensen: Keep focusing on the training you’re doing, one day the results will show!
