Colton Satterfield, 22, took the time to answer a few questions with us this week. Satterfield has been BMXing since 2004 and professionally competeing since 2007. He recently joined Team Madd Gear USA BMX and seems to have the world at his feet.
How did you get into bmxing?
"A bunch of my friends started doing it. I was originally into skateboarding and I was always one of those kids who had to be better than all of his friends so I ended up getting into it, too."
What is your favorite BMX memory?
"A contest in Times Square last year, when I won out of the top 12 dudes in the world. It was kind of an epic place and epic setting."
What was your worst injury?
"Tore my ACL in 2009, doing a trick at an anti-drug assembly for an elementary school. I know it doesn't sound that bad, but I've cracked my skull when I was 16 and the ACL definitely hurt worse."
"360 back flips. Not a lot of people do them and it's just an awesome trick to do."
If you had to pick dirt or vert for the rest of your life, which one would you pick and why?
"Dirt because vert is always the same thing, dirt changes all the time and dirt is what I grew up doing."
Who is your best competition?
"Everyone. Anyone could win the day, and there are always predictions, but nine times out of 10 it's someone you never expected."
Who is your role model?
"BMX rider Kevin Robinson, super accomplished and a genuine good dude."
What do you like to do for fun in Salt Lake when you aren't riding a bike?
"Eating, hanging out with friends, but inevitably when we are together we end up riding."
Favorite restaurant in Utah?
"Chipotle. And it sucks because I live in Orem and the closest one is in Sandy so I have to drive to it when I want it."
