Joining us today is the associate online editor of @RideBMX, Fat Tony. Still time to send in your questions, so keep them coming.

 

Alli Sports
Q: On a scale of 1-10, how awesome is the movie Face-Off?

Ride BMX
A: I hate movies. Never heard of it. If I saw it, Id probably give it between a 0 and a 2 depending on how many boobs are shown.

 

Alli Sports
Q: There is a Gina Gershon sideboob shot. So does that mean you give it a .5?

Ride BMX
A: Haha, no clue who that is, but I’m a sucker for side boob! Although, not sure if that’s worth a .5. I really do hate movies.

(Average Face-Off Rating so far: 7.2)

 

Alli Sports
Q: Noticed your name isn’t really Tony…and you’re not fat. Care to explain?

Ride BMX

A: A: Just a nickname from 9th grade. My friends thought a mafia name was cooler than a dorky white kid name. (Thanks @sodrove LOL)

Alli Sports
Q: Fat Tony is voiced by Joe Mantegna on the Simpsons. Which celebrity would voice you?

Ride BMX
A: A: Hmm… Someone cool. Like Dennis Rodman. Or Tina Fey. Maybe John Stamos? Or Danny Bonaduce! Too many good ones to pick! Haha

 

Alli Sports
Q from @Ridertech: Where is your favorite place to ride?

Ride BMX
A: For skateparks; Louisville, KY & Ray’s MTB. For flatland, Long Beach, CA’s Rainbow Harbor. And any new city for street.

 

Alli Sports
Q from @thedewtour: Which BMXer is going to end up enjoying our new stop in Las Vegas the most?

Ride BMX
A: The @buyvansshoes guys like Luke Parslow and Corey Nastazio are known to get pretty loose out there. It’s BMX though, so…?

 

Alli Sports

Q from @thedewtour: Look ahead to October 17th. Who stands on that stage as BMX Dew Cup champions?

Ride BMX
A: Hard for me to say since I’m media, but it’ll probably be the guys who kicked ass all season and didn’t crash much, LOL.

Ride BMX
A: (continued) I kind of have to stay non-biased on this one. But it still may be safe for me to say Jamie Bestwick. 😉

 

Alli Sports
Gratuitous Simpsons Quote: Can’t I bet that all the horses have fun?

 

Alli Sports
Q: Did you fill out a NCAA bracket? Who is your pick to win it all?

Q from @skyhawks88: How do you choose who is going to be on the cover of the Magazine every month?

Ride BMX

Q from @fu3lish: Who is your favorite park rider of all-time vs. right now? or are they the same person??

Q from @juniorojeda: What is the best BMX park and/or spot in So Cal
