Name: Rachel Jones Sponsors: Remix BMX Mechanic: Myself
Remix, for those who have no clue, can you tell us a little about that brand? Rachel Jones: Remix BMX is a wheel company that is owned out in Reno by Dale Robsinson. However, it is a little different to your standard carbon wheel brands. They’re complete carbon wheel sets, fixed with a 32h Remix carbon rim, a Remix straitpull sealed bearing hub and aero blades spokes, weighing in at around 3lbs. The idea behind Remix is bringing the current innovation from MTB and Road into BMX Race (That is essentially where the name Remix comes from). If you really take a look into it, the engineering is pretty awesome.
So for a frame, could you choose whatever you wanted to ride on? Rachel Jones: I can choose whatever frame I would like to ride on, this season I went for a Speedco Pro (white/black)
Did you really want to race on a carbon frame, or would aluminium work just as well, you think?

Alex Jumelin was born on 23 November 1977. Some would say he's old, but when you see him ride, he'll show you that he's as explosive as 20 years ago. Father of 3, the Jumelin family breathes, eats and sleeps BMX Flatland. Alex is always pushing forward and is running the Flat Academy in Montpellier while competing at the highest level. And he's not done yet. We managed to do a little Q&A with the Frenchman. Find it below.
