I first really got to know Loren on the inferno jam trip I went on this past summer. Since I had only met him once before we left on the trip I was a little weary about what to expect from him, but he came through with flying colours and quickly became one of my favourite people to go on trips with. He is a genuine nice guy and shreds every time we ride, so without further ado, here is the Loren Lyftogt interview. Welcome to the team.
First off. Name, age, and where you’re from:
Loren Lyftogt, I’m 18, from Chilliwack, BC.
Chilliwack doesn’t exactly scream bmx hot spot in BC. What is your guys’ scene like?
We have an indoor barn at my friends house we can ride whenever we want so every one comes out to ride in one spot when the weather isn’t the best and things usually get pretty rad.
What kind of tricks are you into and where do you like riding?
The tricks I do really depend what I am feeling at the moment. Lately I have been doing lots of hang 5’s and turndowns.
You came on a bunch of trips with me to the Okanagan these past few months. What did you think of the scene out there?
I am really stoked on it and I can’t wait to go back once the weather is decent again. The new Penticton park and Ben Lee in Kelowna are really good and every time I’ve been there its been a good sesh.
What are your interests outside of riding?
I play guitar and snowboard but I have really been slacking on both of those lately. I’m planning to get my c ticket in welding and hoping to get into the University of the Fraser Valley next semester but ill have to see how that works out.
For the record, what is your fascination with wolves?
I dunno brah thats just the way it is.
Last one. What are your expectations for being on no bikes this year?
I’m hoping this year will have more trips, more good riding, and more rad stories to tell.
