George Anastasiadis Phots By Argy Valasiadis

My name is George Anastasiadis. I’m 14 years old, I was born in Drama, Greece and I do bmx. I’m a student of the Music School in Drama and I enjoy drawing, bmxing and playing the guitar. Bmx is my favorite hobby and I train regularly so as to be good at it.

The reason that I continue bmx until today is because I see guys doing impressive tricks and I would like to be as good as them. When I get up I have a good breakfast, chat with my friends and go out to ride.

I train every day unless I have school. During term time I finish my homework and then I go out for bmx with my friends. In our area there are not many suitable spots and that’s why the local bmxers, skaters and rollerbladers go to the local skate park to train. I have traveled to other cities to ride.

I have met new riders and I have done bmx at good spots. My favorite spots in our area in Greece are the NorthPark Indoor SkatePark and Xanthi SkatePark. The riders I’ve met there have shown me new tricks and I thank them very much. I would like to take part in the NorthJam which is organized in a few months time hoping to get a good place.
