We caught up with Action Village Pro rider after winning the Nora Cup's best dirt biker of the year award. Here are a few words from the man himself about a night that goes down in the BMX history books.
(ActionVillage.com):What is the best thing about winning this award and what does it mean to you? (Chris Doyle): The best thing about winning this award is that it's voted on by my fellow riders and industry folks. To me, it's everything! Like I said on the mic, I just enjoy riding trails and doing what feels right to me. I don't have the tricks that so many of the other riders have and what I do have probably won't ever win me titles or anything like that. So, to have my simple style of riding appreciated to the extent that I'd win a NORA cup means SO much to me.
AV: Looking back on all of your hard work, is there anyone or groups of people that have really helped you?
CD: There's been so many people, groups of people, that have come into my life through riding that have helped me so much. This, by no means, was a personal award but more an award for all my friends and sponsors.
AV: What did you do to celebrate?
CD: Haha that was a pretty wild night. There were lots of hugs and lots of drinks... a few tears too. Hahaha. Believe it or not, some of my friends had tears streaming down their cheeks that night.
Chris and friends
AV: Whats the next goal in your bmx career?
CD: This one will be hard to top! I just wanna keep riding and stay healthy. To me, BMX is not about winners and losers but more about being a part of a great community. I'd just like to continue to be a part of it all and see where else it takes me in the future.
