What has the UCI Pump Track World Champion title meant to you since you got it? Payton Ridenour: It was a dream come true to win the first ever rainbow jersey given out for pump track! I think it's every cyclist's goal to win a world championship title, so to win the entire event was incredible.
Is it fair to say that BMX Racing comes first for you followed by riding Pump Track? Payton Ridenour: Yes, BMX racing comes first for me and then pump track. It's really convenient that I can transition so easily from racing to pump track too. I train specifically for racing and that transfers right over to the pump track, and my bike set up is the exact same for both.
Leading up to the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships in Lisbon, Portugal, have you ridden more pump tracks lately?
