Chip Akeroyd – Question Time


Chip Akeroyd



Area you reside?


When did you get into BMX?


First BMX?

Raleigh Super Burner lasted 3 weeks before the frame cracked it was utter shite.

Current BMX?

Custom Deathpack Silent Victory 20.75TT 14mm Dropouts, Odyssey R25 forks, BSD wheels with Revolution freecoaster hub, T1 bars, Credence Stem, United Cranks, Bicycle Union Brakes, Maxxis Tyres and still running the very first set of Loophole Prototype aluminium pegs.

Favourite place to ride?

In the past Rehab and Derby Storm. But now it would be a certain private ramp in London and Cardiff Rampworld just because I still love a good double coping spine.

Top 3 BMX-related memories?

1. Pulling a 540 tyretap on a double coping spine and surviving the 1st attempt.

2. Watching Dave Osato turn up and show that massive spine ramp at the Eindhoven Worlds who’s boss. Such a shame he got injured and couldn’t ride the finals; it would have gone off.

3. Driving down to the 1st Palavas Comp following Grotbags and crew in the Ride UK van through France I can’t believe they weren’t arrested.


The Rehab crew.

Who are your perfect people to share a deck with?

The Rehab crew and the Union lads, you would have the best banter and riding experience every time you rode with them.



Favourite BMX Video Section?

Back in the day has to be Jay Miron American Muscle, Currently anything with Paterico Fallico of Colony BMX the brakeless tech master.

Favourite single clip from BMX Video?

I have two. Matt Hoffman airing that massive quarter and Jim Reinstra Back Rail 540 Tap.

Other interests?

Riding Mountain bike parks around the country and also trying to stop out of the local A&E.

Last words?

Age is just a number and ride the best you can you will be surprised what can still happen. Also thanks to all the wonderful people I have meet on this amazing BMX journey.
