39 Been riding since 1983 before freestylin mag was out. I cant imagine too many guys past 45-50 riding unless they more recently got into. But anything is possible.

46 & leaving work early to go ride! Started racing BMX in '78. Saw the first Haro tour in '81 and it was freestyle from then on. Was pretty dedicated in the mid 90's, been riding off an on due to life since. Not a great rider by any stretch of the imagination, but it's still fun and that was why I got into it in the first place.
