Ryan Nyquist

BMX Rider

 

 

1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring BMX rider?

Wear a helmet, be yourself, and have fun. I've seen too many friends crash hard and change their life for the worst. It's just not worth it not to wear a helmet. Being yourself will take you farther than trying to imitate what someone else is doing. BMX needs more people doing their own thing rather than what everyone else is doing. And last but not least, if it's not fun for you, then do something that makes you smile. Life is too short not to enjoy every possible moment.

 

2.) What has been your career highlight so far?

I've had a few memorable moments. One was winning all but one of the Triple Crown Dirt events. That was 11 out of 12 events over 4 years. Also, winning both dirt and park at a Dew Tour Stop. And sweeping all 5 stops of the King of Dirt series.

 

3.) What are your goals for 2013 and beyond?

Just to stay healthy and ride well. Also, to be home as much as I can to be there for my wife and kids.

 

4.) What does a typical day look like for you?

Wake up, get my kids fed and dressed. Then any number of things could happen. I could go riding, or help out at my son's preschool, or just answer emails. When the day winds down it's all about my family and spending time with them.

 

5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

Relax and let my body heal up from whatever is hurting at the moment.

 

6.) Who were your heroes growing up?

Dave Mirra, Jay Miron, Dennis McCoy, Mat Hoffman, and He Man.

 

7.) If you weren't a BMX rider, what would you be?

Maybe an engineer. Not sure. I've ridden bikes for 2/3rds of my life, so it's hard to say what I'd want to be.
