Name: Werner Hendrich
How many years have you been riding? I have pretty much been riding my whole life. When I was about 5 years old, my older brother found a beat up 16 inch BMX in the woods close to our house. I just loved the feeling that riding gave me. It stuck since then.
Top 5 International riders: Garrett Reynolds, Denis Enarson, Ben Lewis, Dan Lacey, Greg Illingworth.
What is your favourite trick? Smith to nose on a ledge and I enjoy a long Ice on a round flat rail. A good crank arm also feels great.
Describe your perfect spot/setup: Perfect spot for me would be a medium high flat rail to lock them crank arm grinds in. I enjoy riding pretty much any ledge or rail as long as it slides nice and you out riding with a bunch of friends.
Top 3 albums/songs: Janis Joplin- Summertime (live at Woodstock)
Jimmy Hendrix- All along the watchtower
David Bowie- Suffragette City
Top 3 BMX web edits or DVD parts: Dakota Roche in Cult Talk is Cheap, Garrett Reynolds in Deadline, Ben Lewis in Above Below.
What do you do when not riding BMX? Most of my time I put into DL. There’s always something to do, whether it’s designing a new part, thinking of new ideas on how to improve things around the brand. My brain never switches off.
What is your favourite food? I love salads and anything avo related.
Places you want to visit? I would like to go to California. Barcelona also looks rad. There are so many places I still want to see and experience.
Free coaster or Cassette? Free coaster!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now? Still having fun on my bike, experiencing new things. Maybe learn how to play the Bass guitar. Just enjoying my life as much as I can and trying to push the riding scene and Daylife Bmx.
