How do you like the looks of your current RIFT bike? Manon Veenstra: I love it! While I am writing this I am actually on the plane on my way home where my new frame will be waiting for me! So these photo’s are litteraly hot off the press. I love the Ferrari red but not much beats a slick all black frame!
Is it a challenge each year to get a good racing bike together for the new season?
Name: Paddy Sharrock Sponsors: Factory Tangent/Rift Mechanic: Most of the time myself but at races like world cups it would be our team mechanic from British Cyling.
How hard is it for you to change from one BMX brand to another. Do you get used to new bikes easily? Paddy Sharrock: Personally I don't mind it, sometimes it can be difficult when your new bike/frame may be a different length or have different head or seat angles. However, it's also a little exciting trying new things that could work better for you.
What is the geometry and length of your frame. Do you know without looking it up? Paddy Sharrock: The only thing I have looked at when getting new bikes is top tube length. So currently I'm running a 22” top tube, I don't really worry about much else.
