Now that you're on the Redline team you're shown on the backcover of BMX Plus! in the Redline ad, how does that feel?
Dustin: It's definitely different coverage from what I'm used to but as long as the photo & ad look good, I'm happy.....it's cool to be able to have the opportunity.
How did that deal work out with Redline anyway?
Dustin: Rooftop.........He called me one day & gave me as much time as I needed to think about it. At the end of it, I knew if Mike was at the helm it was not only going to be a good thing but it'd be fun doing it too.
Who else supports you?
Dustin: Aside from Redline, there's Square One, Red Bull, Primo, Ten Pack & Etnies flow. All companies that fully support BMX & have the kind of teams that make a trip a helluva good time to be on.
Now that you have more time to ride, do you feel it's easier to progress?
Dustin: Yeah, I've been rocked with a couple good injuries over the last year so it's a little frustrating having the time to ride & being injured. Progression is always there though, even if it's being able to manual faster & longer.
How many parks can you choose from within a 45 minute drive?
Dustin: Within 45 minutes? About 25.......
Where do you ride most often?
Dustin: During the winter it's the igloo, during the summer; it'd be Hastings, Parkgate & Horseshoe Bay parks.....good, fast bowls.
Next to riding, what else do you like to do?
Dustin: Since summer is here I've been camping & swimming a lot. There are a lot of towns/cities outside of Vancouver that are getting parks so it's always fun to make a trip out of it. In the winter I'll end up snowboarding a bunch.
Plans for the future?
Dustin: Get sideways, no matter what I'm doing. Probably sports medicine/physio so I can keep my busted ass moving
Thanks to: Jay Miron & the whole Ten Pack crew for sure. Bennett, Bert & Todd Walkowiak @ Square One, Davenport & Moroshan @ Primo, Redline, John Povah & Jaimeson Keegan @ Red Bull
