Angela Diaz, Angie, as she is known in the world of BMX, is a girl like you can see her practicing from 180’s to Backflips! From our little corner of the world decide to interview short so as not to interrupt their other commitments. Do not know her personally, but surely we will soon. Until that day comes we leave you with what you have told us that you, like most northern band finds out who he is and what he does.
Hi Angie! how are you? Very well thank you.!
We have long known of you here in the north of the country, but many of the band does not know you’re one of the few girls bmx riders. How long have you been at this? took one year riding
A girl in Bmx is rare, but we love it there, how did you get involved in this lifestyle?
My ex-boyfriend was BMX and armo me was my bike and I Latio both this lifestyle that caught my attention on making noise (mexico) Guadajalara. be one of the first girls bmx
What about your family? How did she take it? I imagine you have to give them situations that maybe they disagree.
That’s right, I initially supported too, but after I broke my nose did not seem to practice this sport.
What do you think of people who think that this is not a sport for girls?
So people are very closed, but closed it sounds like sexism or racism. and if you say that “women are weak” are mistaken, there are women in the sport who have set the example as the Chilean Camila Harambour.
What are the most difficult obstacles you’ve encountered and how you overcome them?
The loss of good friends.
What are your goals in the bmx and even where you are willing to go to achieve them?
I hope I get to make history in mexico & compete in the X-Games
We’ve seen some tutorials for VGBIKES. What is your relationship with this brand?

The controversial question: It is likely that your womanhood, mocks have heard comments from more experienced riders themselves nationally … could you mention who has been, and what would you say about it?
That’s right, and the truth is not where you want to get that kind of people and one of them was a woman who sells bmx parts.
We learned that while you fracture your nose practicing Backflip … tell about it;
If you broke me … but it was not a backflip. was a thorn.
What this experience has left you? Do you think the falls and bumps are no impediment for those who want to move forward?
I initially thought that if I broke or would prevent further hurt the sport, but when I broke my nose and made my eyebrow I have concluded that if you really like something you hold and no matter falls or blows, the important is fun and get to what qiere Directions
And on the personal side: you study? work? What do you do besides play bmx? Study
What do you like most bmx? that is that by what you say I want to keep doing bmx!
That feeling that I feel when I pull a trick or when motivate me to do so.
And to finish and not get bored, what advice would you give other girls (and boys) who are given up to the early setbacks?
Well, do not let fall … that sometimes falls can be good.
Thank you very much for your time, Angela.
Well, now you have seen, the girls also have to do and do it very well. Bmx practice is not exclusive to men. in fact increasingly see more girls riding left … and I think this puts some flavor to the subject!
