Wildcat Mini BMX has a growing following of fans and riders around the world. However, there are a couple of riders who stand out from the crowd when it comes to passion for the Wildcat Mini BMX Brand, and one of those is Mitch Hutchinson, from Prudhoe in the UK.
We took some time to ask Mitch some questions so we could get to know him more, and to understand why he’s one of our loudest cheer leaders around the world.
Mitch: I'm Mitchell Hutchinson, I'm 8 years old, and I live in the North East of England in a small town called Prudhoe, Northumberland.
I have ASD and dyslexia and find academic studies hard and frustrating. I have always loved being out on my bike as it’s my way of escaping the things I don't like or find hard and it helps to burn my extra energy off.
Mitch:I started riding Mini BMX when I was 3½. I was at a skate park and saw somebody on a Mini BMX and they let me have a go and I loved it.
My current role models are Kieran Reilly and Zach Percival, who have taken me under their wing whilst training, they help and encourage me to try to be the best I can. I also look up to Tom Justice and I love watching Ryan Williams.
Mitch:At present I have 12 bikes and an Aerosteeze trampoline bike, which I use to practice my jumps and tricks before taking them to the ramps.
My list includes:
Mitch:As I live in the North East of England, the weather isn't the best, so I do most of my training at indoor skateparks. When I have school, I spend at least 8 hours a week at skateparks.
I have my own ramps and a grind rail in the back garden so when the weather lets me, I'm out as much as I can, as well as using my aerosteeze.
I also do an hour a week gymnastics which also helps with my balance.
When I don't have school I'm always on my BMX, my dad takes me to different indoor and outdoor skateparks up and down the country.
Mitch:The best trick I have ever done was a backflip into a foam pit at Dynamix indoor skatepark. My favorite is doing fakies on the ramps and the flat, I also like doing 360's on the high ramps.
Mitch:My end goal is to become a professional rider and make team GB for the Olympics. Hopefully being the 1st person to win gold in both the BMX freestyle and gymnastics parallel bars.
Mitch:The best thing about the Wildcat Mini BMX is they are so lightweight; the geometry is perfect for riding normally or doing tricks. Pick Wildcat over all the other Mini BMX bikes because they are quicker and lightweight. I can get higher jumps and they are a lot easier to learn and do new tricks on.
