When Charlotte Worthington first made it on the BMX scene she was refered to as that scooter girl. That changed quickly because she made quick steps on the BMX bike and got picked up by TallOrder because they saw the talent in her. Charlotte is now a member of Team Great Britain and rides for Hyper and has the Olympics on her mind. Under the guidance of Jamie Bestwick and riding with the British team members, Charlotte is making huge steps. The 2019 UEC European Champion answered some questions for us. It's obvious she wants this pandemic to be over TODAY so she can get back to riding Corby and travel the world because of BMX.

It's nice that in BMX everyone can choose whatever they want to ride. Andrew Lazaruk is one of those pool hunters. It's what fancies him. The search, the journey, the first encounter with the pool, the draining and the riding. It's a challenge each time to get the hang of it and to ditch security. That thrill never dies for Andrew. He currently is in Chicago, so anybody out there who knows of a secret riding spot, hit up this man. See what Andrew has been up to in his Last Call....Q&A.
Last package you received from a sponsor? Andrew Lazaruk: It was from United. A bunch of their new summer clothes, stuff came out sick!
If BMX had 100 riders like Matthias Dandois, the popularity of BMX would rise to a bigger level. Matthias' spirit, drive and enthusiasm is unheard of. He gets the attention he deserves but also takes the opportunities that are needed to get in the picture. Sometimes it might be out of the comfort zone, but for Matthias it lead to acting in a movie and getting the cover of GQ magazine. It is hard to keep up with Matthias and we're stoked he found some time to get back to us to answer some questions. Last contest you entered: Chimera Games in Japan end of February 2020
Alberto Moya has the balance of a ballerina but on a bike. The way he manages to perform a trick on such slow speed is incredible and makes many flatland riders jealous. Where others spin fast, Alberto moves slow which is the creative style the Spaniard brings to the floor. It puts the crowd into a trance. Learn more about Alberto below.
Last contest you entered: Masters of Quarentine. It was this contest with the BMX home-trainer. It was so fun...
Last contest you won: ...and I ended up winning :)
What can we say about Tom van den Bogaard that hasn't already been said? He's our local hero representing Aarle-Rixtel at BMX events all around the world. 2020 has been slow on events but Tom keeps himself busy.

It's hard to find a more motivated rider than Jean-William Prevost. Flatland riders in general are the ones putting in the most time on their bike. Riding has become their religion and the urge to go to church (their flatland spot) is there constantly. The creative mind is used to come up with tricks that have never been done before that fits their style. Dub is a master in it. Last call for Dub right here......
Last flight you took? Jean-William Prevost:I went to Florida and came right back around mid-March when things were getting out of whack.
Last nice dinner you had? Jean-William Prevost:Not so healthy.
Last flat tire you got? Jean-William Prevost:2 days ago popped a tubolito, rimstrip had shifted ://///
Last Netflix series you watched? Jean-William Prevost:Never ever watch series.
Last contest you entered? Jean-William Prevost:TORONTO INTL BIKE SHOW
Some riders can simply do it all. They're good at anything without trying, or at least it looks like it comes naturally to them. Dennis Enarson is one, but the Australian version is Boyd Hilder for certain. Park, Street, Bowls, and just let's throw Dirt in there for good measure, as we're sure he would shred on that terrain too. Check what Boyd has been up to lately by reading his Last Call.... list below.
Last car you bought? Boyd Hilder: 2000 Hiace 3 years ago for 3 grand. Still so stoked on it.
PAULTJE PILS. We've almost taken on Paul Thoelen as a Dutchman. He's here way too often to be considered 100% German. In fact, when he's home, he lives half an hour from the border and boy-o-boy we would love for him to join the Dutch family. But BMX family is close enough to continue with the good times with Paul, his brother Max and his parents. Paul is that rider that goes higher than 95% of the riders at the contest and makes everything look good. A pleasure to watch. Last call for alcohol? Don't forget to mention that to Paultje Pils.
Last package you received from a sponsor? Paul Thoelen: 3 days ago. Love you Vans!
Last time you went to the gym? Paul Thoelen: I actually had a full week of training last week haha. Usually I’m not really into gyms.
Last advice you got from a good friend? Paul Thoelen: To go to bed after falling asleep at the bonfire.
Last contest you entered? Paul Thoelen: Red Bull Uncontained in November last year.
There are riders out there that can't be stopped. They're the first to start riding and the last to get off the ramps. Irek Rizaev is one of those riders. For Irek this pandemic is hard to deal with. He can't sit still. He wants to ride. He wants to travel. He wants to have dinner with more than 2 of his friends. A little catch up with the Russian below in the Last Call... Q&A.
Last contest you entered: Irek Rizaev: It was 27th of June, but it was small local and only for 15 riders. Because of the pandemic. The last big one was Simple Session.
Last contest you won: Irek Rizaev: It was this contest I won at the opening of a big extreme park at my home city.
Last package you received from a sponsor: Irek Rizaev: It was around two weeks ago. Package with the frame of my own brand REDBMX.
