SE Bikes Racer Tyler Gudelj
Nine years old and on the SE Racing team? Better believe it!

How old are you?
Nine, but I think with the glasses I can pass for a short 11.

Where do you live?
Oldsmar, Florida.

How many SE bikes do you own?
Three. I have a Ripper Jr, Ripper X, and a Ripper, too! I want a Fat Quad or a So Cal Flyer next.

What’s your favorite SE bike?
Right now I love riding my Ripper Jr, although I’m gonna really like my new Ripper X when it’s released.

What’s your favorite place to ride or race?
My favorite place to have a race is the Rockstar Energy Park. I love the track all other options to ride: pools, dirt jumps, and freestyle parks! My favorite place to ride is in Santa Fe, NM at the La Tierra trails. The terrain is steep and fast with flowing lines for days.

What is your favorite thing about BMX racing?
I like everything about it! Laughing in staging with friends before your heart starts to pound as you hear “riders ready”, and then it’s all just ride and react… until the next lap.

What’s your secret to improving your riding skills?
I just have fun and try my best. It’s fun to finally clear a gap that’s been “too far” for so long and then I land it clean!! That feeling is why I have all the scabs and scars from riding. Gaining any new skills or a new way to do something you already know is fun, too.
What’s something that people may not know about you?
I am deeply committed to owning a snake, and can’t wait to turn 18 so I can buy my own snake.
