Podcast interviews, insight, news and views for BMX Racing.
Podcast: Catch-up with Paul Roberts – British Olympic Medalist talk, UK events last weekend, Dave Cullinan, Lee Bertram & Damon Parkinson and more
Quick drive up to Huntington Beach to catch up with @grotbags32 to hang out, ride around town, eat Wahoos and record a quick podcast.
Paul talks about British Olympic medalists this summer in both Race and Freestyle, the media around them and hopefully what their success will bring for BMX in the UK. We hit on a few thoughts on the @sourcebmx Battle Of Hastings that went on last weekend in the UK, the Ipswich 40 year anniversary race and some of the riders that were present.
We then go onto the topic about a few riders that we feel were a little underestimated: Lee Bertram and Damon Parkinson in the UK, and in the US, Dave Cullinan and how good he really was on a BMX for his time not just in racing but also as a test rider for BMX Action Magazine.
Check it out and there’s so much more.

This podcast is a history episode. Jane is from the UK along with her dad Les (Mr. Hotshot) and family were present in and around BMX at the very start in the UK. Jane was National number 1 Girl in 1981 and her family owned and operated Hotshot BMX, one of the first and iconic BMX companies in the UK with a very deep history.
Robert is from Torrance, California along with Bob Haro was one of the BMX riders in the Movie ET and we go into detail about how he got the gig, meeting Steven Spielberg for the first time and all the insight on the epic BMX chase scene in the movie that made an indelible mark on many of us when we saw it for the first time.
We talk all things Hotshot; the teams, brands and riders they sponsored over the years with names including Tom Lynch, Geth Shooter, Jamie Staff, Sarah-Jane Nichols and the list goes on. Robert talks about the early days working for Howie Cohan (Everything Bicycles and was the man behind the Kuwahara ET Bikes) alongside working with a bunch of other major brands in the early 80s. Robert, still racing today, tells us what he and Jane have planned for Hotshot in the future and so much more.
