How long do you usually race on a frame?
Andrea Escobar: 1-2 years
Did you get to choose the colour of your frame?
Andrea Escobar: Yes I do! GW always let us choose our color, my favorite color is orange :D.
Did you get to choose the colour of your parts?
Andrea Escobar: Yes I do! I always choose black, blue or gold. Well, I think those colors fit right with Orange.
Do you experiment much with sizes of your frame, stem, bars to find the right set-up?
Andrea Escobar: My coach, Sergio Ignacio Salazar, always encourages me to try new stuff to see what works the best. But at this moment I'm not doing any big changes. I’m feeling very good with my set-up.
Do you have something customized to make your bike more personal and perfect for you?
Andrea Escobar: Not really! Only the colors are the ones that make my bike customized. I really enjoy taking care of my bike and trying to match the colors.
What bike shop do you go to for your BMX parts/service?
Andrea Escobar: My sponsors are always hooking me up with the parts I need. But when I need something urgently I always go to @ciclotales Store.
When's your next race going to be?
Andrea Escobar: I hope it will be soon… maybe Rock Hill? We don’t know.. this situation with the COVID19 is complicated! Fingers crossed to be racing again.
