A few pro BMX-ers have been running their own personal website for a few years. They get uploaded on a regular basis with race reports, news and....bitching at one another. We decided to ask Derek Betcher, Todd Lyons, Dale Holmes, Greg Romero and Robbie Miranda a few questions about their site. The first one to reply was Robbie Miranda of www.robbiemiranda.com. Robbie is using his website to sell his BMX instruction video at the moment but has been a big influence and help for the other riders to get their websites up and running. Here goes......
Who is the first one you think to respond to this, and who is last?
Dale Holmes.com....I will be the last, I'm the worst at replying to these emails
Is that the same way it would be on the track? On a fair race with the 5 of you on the gate, what would be the results?
Probably the opposite. Dale Would win because he likes to pedal fast, Greg Will put up a good fight but Dale lives for this sport, so he's the best. Todd, Derek, and I are confused on what direction to go so we will bring up the rear.
If you had to do 5 jumps at a KOD contest on a 15 foot double jump, what would they be?
360 Flatty, Flip Turndown, 360 X One Footer, Old School No Hander, Turndown
Who gets most visits/hits on their site?
RM59 gets the least, unless you want a video!
Who spends most time updating their site?
RM59.com is on cruise control. I don't touch it and it sells videos by its-self
Who designed your website?
I did. And all these guys had my help
Do you spend more time on the bike than behind the computer?
I think everybody uses the computer more than they ride. Really, you can deny it but everybody is guilty. Your life is run on a computer, bills, email, research, Shopping etc..
When did you start your website?
After the Wildman had his..I liked it so I made one, Maybe around 1998
What's the coolest feature on your site?
Buy a video! I used to have this profile thing where kids can put up thier profile and pictures, but I took it down, too much work and to many problems associated with people posting their own pictures.
