Name: Stacey Mulligan
From: Toms River, NJ
Briefly describe yourself… I love riding bikes of all kinds but most of all I love BMX bikes and riding skateparks or trails. I also love to to run, travel, learn spanish and eat vegetables!
Talk us through your average day… Well this summer I have been living in europe so my average day has been to wake up late and eat then ride street in Spain and then eat and take a siesta “nap” and after I go to the beach and then when it is dark and less hot out ride again… I can’t complain that’s for sure.
How long have you been riding? 5 and a half years.
Best achievement: Jumping out of an airplane on my bike.
Best trick: 360’s
Biggest rush: Riding a new set of trails.
Scariest moment: Recently I was in Switzerland and I was riding trails and I nose-cased my front wheel and got my handle bar to my chest. I came out only with a broken rib but anything hitting a girls chest is scary.
Favorite riders: Justin Inman, Nina Buitrago, Corey Martinez
Favorite place to ride and why: All of Europe but mostly Le Havre in France… the best cement park I know.
What essential items do you pack in your suitcase for a trip? My toothbrush, socks and a notebook.
Top 3 tunes: Anything by Sleater Kinney, Bebe and Clapp Your Hands Say Yeah.
How do you stay in shape? Normally runnning and swimming and I ride my road bike everywhere instead of driving.
Top training tip: Relax and have fun! With freestyle BMX the more clear your mind is and the happier you are, the better you will ride.
