2007 is one busy year again. Do you pick your own events to go to or do your sponsors ask you to go places?
Bas Keep: Miron sent me a text asking if I wanted to go to Singapore so its usually that kind of deal. I like going to fun and different stuff and I’ll usually go to events that my sponsors are involved with. I’ve helped Kye Forte and Red Bull out with an amazing event called "Empire Of Dirt' its a dirt event with street obstacles and a Dirt halfpipe! The crew at Red Bull are always trying to push it and make there events fun for the riders so I know it’s gonna be rad!

Hastings is your home. Have you ever considered moving somewhere else?
