BMX Freestyler Mail Bag!

Today I received a wonderful message from Ruben Castillo in South America. Thank you so much Ruben for sharing your story. Stories like yours keep the spirit of riding going and encoraging others out there to get back on the bike to ride.

Mark, good afternoon
My name is Ruben Castillo, not the famous one, just a beginner from south America. I frequently visit bmxfreestyler, I got used to this after I watched your video “ My first decade”, thanks for sharing your experiences with all of us. I have been encouraged for your videos and notes.
I am 34 years old, tried freestyle when I was 19 but could not get any progress, however, I decided to try it once again eight months ago, but this time I am having a nice progress besides my age. My wife encouraged me to send this beginner video for backwards steamroller, the trick I have learned during this eight months practicing two hours per week.
I hope you will enjoy knowing that you are very famous at home, and we thank you a lot for encouraging people to do not stop and continue enjoying the pleasure of riding.
God bless You
