Dan Lacey is a UK-based shredder that rides for Federal, Lotek, Primo and Dub BMX. He is not, I repeat, is not, the infamous Painter of Pancakes that gained online notoriety for a nude painting of Barack Obama riding a unicorn. So be warned, if you're going to Google Dan Lacey's name, you're probably better off searching for "Dan Lacey BMX." Otherwise, you're inevitably going to stumbled onto Dan Lacey the Pancake Painter. But that's not where I wanted to go with this. If you've been paying attention to BMX at all over the past few years, you've more than likely seen one of Dan's vids on the Web. But there hasn't been too much about Dan's personality off the bike, so I figured I'd throw his some questions at Dan and let everyone get a chance to know one of the U.K.'s most stylish riders to date. This is Dan Lacey.
