Big news to start the week, Nor Cal flatland legend Pete Brandt just joined the Quest BMX crew! I caught up with Pete, and the owner/manager Danny Sirkin and Steve Lapsley to get their reaction to the news.
Effraim: Hey Pete just heard the big news about you getting on Quest bmx. Firstly congratulations, how do you feel about the hook up?
Pete: Thank you man!! I really appreciate the hook up and I was in fact really looking at this frame before the hook up and was really interested in riding it. I set the frame up in 15 minutes everything went smooth and no warm up time at all.
Effraim: What are your ambitions for the 2017 season? Can we expect to see you at any contests?
Pete: Main ambition is too ride hard, progress, have fun and flow. I hope to go to contest this coming year, I always love seeing everyone and competing.
Effraim: Any signature parts planned Pete?
Pete: Signature parts would be awesome I always love doing signature parts because there is a lot of parts out there that aren’t flat specific, it would be nice to keep things coming out with specific geometry, reach, sizes and reactive.
Danny, and Steve! What a great addition to your team, what’s your initial reactions to this great scoop?
“Pete is a worldwide flatland icon. He has been an amazing ambassador of the sport for over 20 years. We are excited to not only add another great rider to the QuestBMX team, but a great person as well.” Steve Lapsley, Quest team manager.
“We are super stoked to have Pete join the Quest team! He is a staple of the flatland community and always brings such high energy to everything he does! “ Danny Sirkin, owner of Quest BMX.
