Actual full name (no idea how to spell the last name haha)
Zachary Alexander Yankush
What exactly is your job?
I work as Team Manager for DK Bicycle Co. I also freelance as a professional BMX emcee
You travel a lot, where have you been in the last few months?
Sweet God. France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Utah, Oregon, California, Florida, and New York. Thats just September.
What is your favorite place you have been?
Hawaii is pretty rad. Any place in Europe is better than the states. Woodward is up there. I have a lot of favorites.
Craziest thing you have seen out on the roads?
Dead people. People on the verge of death. In Texas a big breasted stripped siphoned gas out of our van with her mouth while a hypodermic needle was stuck in her leg.
At your size, exactly how hard is it to keep girls off of you? (I meant height)
I didn’t know you knew about my “special” secret.
I usually just use a baseball bat.
Announcing at all of the contests, who do you think you could embarass the most infront of hundreds of thousands of people?
I would love to announce any internet bmx shit talker simply because I know they don’t ride bikes.
Why did you shut down catfishcatfish.com like two years ago?
i was too damn busy. It is back up now though. Spread the word.
How many strippers noses have you broken?
Just one but it was an accident!!!
Where do you call “home”? Considering your on the road all the time it seems like?
Dayton, Ohio is where my house is. I also call home Youngstown. Thats my hoood son!
How much would you like to rub it in peoples faces that you get paid to travel the world?
Not a lot of people. Mostly people that told me riding BMX would get me no where in life. Fuck those people. I now have the opportunity to show young riders that you can make it happen!
I’ll never be as good as Scotty Cranmer but Im getting paid to be at all the same events he is. I just run my mouth. If I can do it…anyone out there can. Don’t give up the fight kids!
How many times have you been robbed!? (I see you had a little trouble over seas recently)
um..just once. Fuck Paris, France. 🙂
Whats the hottest tricks grandpa is throwing down now days?
Pick up any of the new Road Fools or Megatour 7. You will see.
Still loving the backwards manual though.
Your favorite song?
Quinn Semlings version of “Ass and titties..ASS ASS TITTY TITTY”
What are some big things you got planned or coming up?
Keep stoking kids on BMX. Chill at home a bit. Enjoy the hottub. I’ll be in Orlando for the Dew Tour Finals. Maybe a lil bit more of Europe this year. Then the fun starts all over again in 08!
What would you like to do someday down the road you havent been able to do?
Have an african american baby.
How many girls have claimed they have you baby?
At least 4.
Is there ever a time you wish you did something else and if so what?
Never. I love my life so much because BMX is my passion and I have the opportunity to get more kids involved in this awesome culture of ours.
Who all would you like to thank?
My mom and dad for always supporting me. DK and System cycle and everyone that works thre. Etnies,UGP,Konig wheels, and OBMX. Oh and anyone that rides bikes and smiles.
That would be catfish for you all.. Im super stoked he could be the first interview on here..
