First of all, how can you explain your interest in the early days of BMX? Dom Phipps: I was just a neighborhood rider growing up in the south of England. BMX came along in a period of my childhood, where I think many of us needed to set off in a direction. BMX became the catalyst for a lot of young people to become free-thinking, creative, and independent. I loved everything about it, including the social aspect and friendships with other like-minded kids. It was a magical time to be young.
