I was to be asked by Jeremy Ball to interview Scott Yoquelet for The Union and I immediately was stoked as all get out! I have spent most of my life with Scotty, be it while riding a bike or doing anything else. Over the years, Scott has been my business partner, traveling partner, and one of the oldest and coolest friends a guy could ask for. We grew up together in Fort Wayne, Indiana we would always tear up the local spots together with our crew. Now, as the years have passed, we have became part of the “old man posse,” and I am here to tell you that as we have gotten older, neither of us have slowed on our riding.
The reason that I am telling you this is that I have been a first hand witness to Scotty’s BMX career and am here to pass on what I have seen to you, so you can enjoy the good times we shared too.
For those of you who haven’t ever had the opportunity to see Scott ride his bike, I can tell you that he is one of the most talented, cleanest, and smoothest dudes you will ever see on a 20”. Scotty has put his stamp on the sport, and has influenced too many people to count. This interview is a touch long, but keep in mind that I had to narrow down over 30 years of BMX through the mind of Scott Yoquelet!
