Alin Moldovan

” Prima dată am descoperit BMX-ul acum 13 ani, când am dat un “mountebaic cu coarne” pe un BMX Tokaido, adus din Germania, o bicicletă din revista Neckermann, varianta lucioasă de Pegas cu peguri. Mi-a arătat un prieten bun cum să mă desprind de la sol cu amândouă roţile.  După ceva vreme, a dat o maşină peste mine  la trecerea de pietoni şi, cu banii pe care i-am primit de la şofer, mi-am cumpărat un Moongose, era un pas ca de la Oltcit la Dacie. Cu bicla, îmi place libertatea pe care o am pe stradă, pot să sar peste borduri, am avut ceva accidentări,  am venit ca după război acasă, dar nu mi-a păsat, am continuat.

Am reuşit să mă calific pe locul 5 la BMX Worlds (Campionatul Mondial de BMX) din Koln (Germania) la categoria Pro Street în 2012, imediat după am avut oportunitatea să îmi proiectez cadrul pe care mă dau şi în ziua de azi, Dartmoor Thug, lucru pe care l-am visat de când am început să mă dau pe BMX.”
