How do you like the looks of the new Meybo? Merel Smulders: Yes! I love the combination of darker colors and the Matte finish. Something totally different compared to our bright red bike last year, but I love it!
Black frame with anthracite accents, black parts and a few parts that stand out like the oil-slick pedals. Any reason for the colour of the pedals?

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.
Last package you received from a sponsor? Andrew Lazaruk: It was from United. A bunch of their new summer clothes, stuff came out sick!
If BMX had 100 riders like Matthias Dandois, the popularity of BMX would rise to a bigger level. Matthias' spirit, drive and enthusiasm is unheard of. He gets the attention he deserves but also takes the opportunities that are needed to get in the picture. Sometimes it might be out of the comfort zone, but for Matthias it lead to acting in a movie and getting the cover of GQ magazine. It is hard to keep up with Matthias and we're stoked he found some time to get back to us to answer some questions. Last contest you entered: Chimera Games in Japan end of February 2020
Alberto Moya has the balance of a ballerina but on a bike. The way he manages to perform a trick on such slow speed is incredible and makes many flatland riders jealous. Where others spin fast, Alberto moves slow which is the creative style the Spaniard brings to the floor. It puts the crowd into a trance. Learn more about Alberto below.
Last contest you entered: Masters of Quarentine. It was this contest with the BMX home-trainer. It was so fun...
Last contest you won: ...and I ended up winning :)
