Karl Hughes has been support the Filipino scene for a while now in a bunch of different ways. It was about time he felt that some recognition needed to go the way of the group of dedicated riders in the scene so here is the first interview of several to get to know the riders involved a little more…
Name, age and location:
Stephen “Ginman” Sonido
23 years old
Davao City, Philippines
Has your riding improved since the beginning of the philipine projects?
Yes, now i am able to push my limits with my bike and not worry that it might break during my prax sessions…
Has the online battles helped you, your riding, your scene?
Yes, it motivates me a lot to learn new links in such a short time..
Has the online battles changed flatland in your country?
Yes, i think it exposed the different riding styles throughout the country and made us even more motivated to learn those styles and integrate it to our own style..
What has been the reaction from outside assistance, from colony, newcircle, flatlandfuel, and many fellow riders?
I am very thankful specially to Karl Hughes for heading the bike projects, to the companies and people who contributed, and the locals who helped coordinate and distribute the parts here in the Philippines. Without Your help i would never ever have this kind of bike and would have never experienced flatland riding in its fullest.
Any words you’d like to add?
It is a blessing to receive such parts from good persons who doesn’t even know us. It is a miracle to be chosen, of all the others, as one of the recipients of the bike project. Let us not make their efforts go unnoticed. Lets put them parts to good flatland use, remain humble, and also be a blessing to others who are in need.
