Eddie Fiola had an interview in this issue of BMX Plus! Here's a few quotes from the text:"Eddie Fiola is a wizard. He makes things happen on a bike you just can't believe. Whether it's one-footer aerials, tabletops, cross-ups, one-handers, airborne 360-s or not-so-simple jumps, Eddie rips."
"Now 17, Eddie started out like most California kids. He jumped on the skateboarding rage at age 10 and soon gravitated to skateparks. The first one open to Eddie was Skatopia, near Knotts's Berry Farm. It was here Fiola learned the basics of vertical riding."
"There was a local spot, near his house, called Kitty Banks, that was part of the L.A. concrete riverway. Kitty Banks had enough vertical to it for Eddie to learn how to fly. Top skateboarders, like Ray Bones and Stacy Peralta, used Kitty Banks also and Eddie would interpret skate moves into BMX freestyle moves.
"The sport of BMX has had a lot of great trick riders. The standouts include Tinker Juarez, Jeff Watson, Bob Haro, Bob Morales, Perry Kramer, and more. In comparison, Fiola is the youngest and the most anxious."
