Q&A: STEVE CRANDALL

I’ve known Crandall for a long time, so it’s kind of strange that it took this long to get him on the site in some sort of personal Q&A form. He’s been featured here a bunch, but never like this. Perhaps I always struggled with how to approach it, thinking that Steve has been well documented and just falsely assuming that people know everything about him. With that said, here we are.

This Q&A is broken up into 4 digestible topics, which feels like a good approach. We discuss Art, Announcing Contests, The FBM bus and FBM.

Interbike

Soooooo, another year of Interbike has come and gone. You may have already seen a bunch of coverage from the show, but in case you missed anything, go HERE, HERE, or scour BMX FEED.

Besides getting to see and chill with everyone (which is the best part of Interbike), the overall most memorable moment for me/everyone was Chris Doyle winning Dirt Rider of the Year. That dude rules. Seeing Hoder go crazy with Doyle’s Nora Cup was equally as classic, haha…

Shout out to Corey Martinez and United too.

DINOSAUR jr.

Crandall emailed and said to peep the FBM site for the new Dino JR video. I did (it’s above), and it’s pretty rad.

According to Crandall:
Dinosaur Jr is awesome. Kenny and Joel were stunt doubles, I had a cameo drinking a beer next to Mike Watt. Mike Manzoori filmed it, Mark Locke directed it, we had fun!

THE FAT HOUSE: BY STEVE CRANDALL

Steve Crandall submitted this rad story on the Fat House, which was a BMX house in Ft Wayne, Indiana many years ago. The Fat House housed many notable riders, and I’m sure there are a million stories about the place. Lots of history!!!

Thanks to Crandall.
