Name: Cohin Brooker
When did you start riding? Why ride flatland above other forms of BMX?
I’ve been riding 6 years (Morgan’s not sure about this… and thinks Cohin started riding when he was 3, so four years.) I ride Flatland because it’s easier for a boy like me. Morgan first taught me how to do my tricks, my first trick was a footjam.
How often do you ride?
Every week, nearly… I like riding because it is fun!
Do you ride contests? If yes, what has been your biggest success? If no, why not? (It’s interesting to find out people’s views on competition…)
Yes I do. I came last at the King of Southsea this year, but it was my first competition. I haven’t had a biggest success yet.
Where do you ride?
In the car park in Fleckney. It is good because there’s not always many cars, and that is good isn’t it?
What is the riding scene in your town like? Are there any other flatlanders?
Quiet, but not when Gemma’s here, with her big rally car screaming its way through the village. No, Flatlanders don’t come to there because a car may crash into their face!!!
If you could take a flatland world tour, which 5 places would you like to visit for riding and why?
Into the earth’s core, because it’s hot!
Germany, because you get loads of ice creams, and I can get fat!
Spain, because it’s warm.
America, because it’s on the other side of the world and there’s loads of good bikes.
India, because my best mate lives there, and there’s a dog called Jackie Chan.
Is there a goal you would like to reach concerning your riding?
A really good wheelie and foot jam. A framestand wheelie.
Which trick/combo are you working on at the moment?
I’d say wheelie.
What kind of music do you like? What are your 3 favourite songs?
I like Green Day. I saw Green day LIVE and IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!
My favourite songs are ‘Do you know your enemy?’, ‘American Idiot’ and ‘Basket Case – Live’.
Tell us 3 things you like and 3 things you don’t like
I like: playing, Karate and Fizz, our German Shepherd.
I don’t like: Morgan and my family dying, Fizz biting me, Arabella (our cat) scratching me.
Do you work or study?
I study at school… School is fun and my favourite friend is called James Chamberlain.
Do you have any hobbies besides flatland and do they influence your way of riding? (For example music you listen to, another sport, whatever)
Tennis, footie, computer games, a flatland space, Morgan helps me ride.
I ride a Redline Raid. My bike is cool!
Front tire: Primo Comet
Rear tire: Kenda Kontact that came the bike (Co wore one out, hence the comet on the front!).
Front pegs: Odyssey Jpegs (that Morgan bought me)
Rear pegs: FlyBikes (off Morgan’s bike)
