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.

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 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.
