Riding since: 2005
Lives in: Frederick, ColoRADo
Influences: Fun, style, Dr. Pepper, Matt Cordova, Mike Aitken, good people.
Hobbies: Bikes, driving fast, hanging out with all my buddies, spending time with Cheyanne, getting wild, buying shoes, eating candy and drinking soda.
Music: I like rap, dubstep, house, 80′s, or anything that gets me pumped.
Favorite riding spot: It’s going to have to be Sandstone skatepark in Longmont, I’m there almost every night and it doesn’t ever get old to me!!
Favorite bike video: My favorite BMX video is going to have to be Anthem II, it’s amazing.
Twitter or Facebook: Twitter ALL day! Follow me! @bmxmurfitt
Favorite road trip story: There are too many, but one of my favorites, is walking into gas stations with PlusSizeBmx and the T-Pain mic, rapping to everyone in the store in Kansas, they didn’t know what to do.
Thoughts on the BMX community today: I think that it’s getting too serious, not too many people ride for fun anymore, they’re all about getting sponsored and doing the biggest tricks.
Why are you so obsessed with Waka Flocka: Because he goes so HARD in the paint, and that’s probably the only reason….! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKA!!
Who picks on you the most: The people that pick on me the most are going to have to be Shmavo, Davis, and Rory.. Love those guys!
Future plans: Release a rap song with Matt Cordova, to keep having fun with riding and progressing, to own IBM hahahaha, start going to School, and to do less tailwhips and more moto whips!
Anyone you would like to thank: Joe’s Bike Shop, PlusSizeBmx, Interface Watches, 624 Magazine, all my friends and family for pushing me, my rad girlfriend Cheyanne, Hustle Milk, Mike&Ike, Dr. Pepper, good quarter pipes, Waka Flocka, IBM/Morgan Stanley for hiring me, dolla dolla billz, iPhones, tank tops, V-necks, skinny jeans, cut offs, the word RAD, the state of Colorado, sorry if I forget anyone or anything… hahahahaha
Any advise for the kids just starting out in BMX: Just have fun, don’t get upset when you’re not having a good day riding, and don’t hate on others at the park that don’t ride just like you.
Final thought: I should probably get back to work and stop doing this interview.. but I’ll probably get on twitter.. #ShopJoesBikeShop #DoItYouWont
