This week I jumped on Skype with Daniel Dhers. If you follow BMX at all, you know who Daniel is, and if you don’t, let me fill you in a little… Daniel moved to the US from Venezuela in 2006 to be a full time professional bike rider and has gone on to win win five gold medals at X Games, 11 stops of the Dew Tour, four Dew Tour year end titles, and a long laundry list of other competitions along the way. In addition to having an incredible BMX career, Daniel has a really good head on his shoulders when it comes to business so we talked a lot about that and his newest venture, the Daniel Dhers Action Sports Complex, which is a giant skatepark in Holley Springs, North Carolina that serves as an investment for Daniel and his personal training facility.
Daniel really opened up and is allowing the world see a side of him that we rarely get to see from professional BMX riders. I got a ton out of this conversation, and I think you will too, so without rambling on too much longer, let’s jump right into it and get inside the mind of this world class athlete and professional shit talker.
The “Chime In” question this episode was, “What keeps you lying awake at night?”
