Tell us a bit about yourself?

Hey I'm Mark Freeman 25 years old from the north west coast of Tasmania. I’ve been riding bikes from the age of 4. My first bike was a z50 dad got me into motocross at a young age that's how it all started.

How did you get into freestyle bmx?

In the year 2000 I had a bad crash on my CR 80 and busted my neck and flat lined. My dad and mum made me stop racing but let me keep riding bmx. I always rode bmx on the side as a kid anyway just for the fun of it, as I still ride just for fun and the love for the sport. Being young all my mates had bmx's we always just did our own thing and cruised around, jumped curbs and build dirt jumps then we finally got a skate park and we all lived there pretty much haha. But everyone gave up and started to get into cars and most just moved on from bmx. It’s always been my passion to ride bikes I’ve been riding my whole life bmx turned into a life style for me.

How do you psych yourself up to do a big move?

Go through the motion of the trick in my head before I do it. So I picture myself land it in my head, say to myself “I’ve got this” and just drop in and send it.

You recently got your hands on some REIZE what do you think of it?

It’s amazing it’s the best energy drink out! I love how it’s a small package and it’s easy to chuck a heap in my bag and it takes up literally no room, great to travel with or have in your pocket at work for those days when you need an energy boost. Being sugar free is awesome and it tastes amazing!

Have you found any favourite mixes?

My personal favourite is just keepit simple and mix it with water, but I also like to mix it with lemonade every now and then.

Anything else you would like to tell the world?

I’d like to thank everyone that supports me and watches my YouTube edits and follows me on Instagram and Facebook. Thanks to Mum and Dad for all their support over the years, they have been there for the good and the bad and helped me when I’ve busted myself up pretty bad.

Big shout out to REIZE Energy, WSM Freestyle, Fist Handwear and BMX international for all the support.
