If you follow freestyle at all, then Trey Jones is a name that needs no introduction. In addition to making his way as a professional rider, wisely affixed upon the rosters of the Cult, Shadow, Vans, and Dan’s Comp pro teams, I discovered that this 6th generation native Floridian has some genuinely deep BMX roots thriving down in the alligator alleys and sweaty swamps of North America’s favorite peninsula. Trey is fully armed with an arsenal of creativity, a healthy work ethic and prominent early influences. I can’t emphasize enough how much I enjoyed our conversation and look forward to seeing Trey in the spotlight for many years to come.

Enjoy!
