Dean Cueson Interview.
An opportunity came up to have Dean riding for Haro UK earlier in 2015 and I couldn’t help to think it was a perfect fit. Dean is a unique rider keeping the big airs in BMX and he also has legit bar-spins that not many people do these days with new school bus-driver’s being all too common, he’s a nice and respectful guy and he’s a pleasure to watch ride.

Hometown? Birmingham, UK
When did you start riding and what got you into it? I started riding when I was 11, I remember one year I wanted a BMX and luckily my mom worked with some riders who knew what’s up and they got me started. Things escalated from there!
Influences in BMX? My influences at first were Dave Mirra and Ryan Nyquist. I’ve looked up to a few people over the years but I still look up to those two guys in particular!
Have you ever had a Haro before 2015? My first BMX was a Haro Mirra 360 16 inch, I even wore a full-face and all the gear, as I just wanted to be like Mirra and Nyquist haha.
How do you air a quarter-pipe so high? Grew up with the “Practice makes perfect” mentality, and just going fast and consistently going higher!
How’s Haro UK doing? Yeah all good, I’m happy to be a part of a company I have always been into!
Best feeling trick ever? Can’t beat a good table! Any trick you can extend feels right!
How often do you ride? It varies, 2-3 times a week.
How was the Vans US Open? Yeah loved it! Something new to me with the no pedaling but enjoyed riding with everyone and showing my riding in the States, hopefully be out there again next year!
