Michael: You′ve been riding since you were young, how did you get into BMX?

Trey: My dad raced when he was a kid and when I learned how to ride a bike when I was 3 and he saw I was trying to jump curbs, he figured he would take me to the race track and I immediately fell in love!

Michael: Did your family support your riding growing up?

Trey: Ya 100%! They were always super into it and did anything it took for me to have fun!

Trey: It definitely gave me a different approach to life and taught to not be so cautious about the little things and just focus on having a good time.

Michael: What influences your riding?

Trey: I guess people that do there own thing and aren′t influenced by people around them because it makes me realize you don′t have to do what′s cool to have fun.
