At home with Haro's Pat Casey
Welcome to Pat Casey's house
"My name is Pat Casey, I'm 18 years old and I'm from Yorba Linda California. I ride for Monster Energy, Fox, Vans, Haro Bikes, Demolition, and Bell."
Pat's new house
"I just bought my own house and I'm just trying to settle in and figure out my plans for my new backyard set up," says Pat.
Thoughts on 2012
"This past year has been great riding wise. I've felt really good on my bike and ended up doing good in a bunch of contests that I've watched growing up as a kid, so I'm stoked."
"I live with my girlfriend Chase, our two dogs and our cat; it's awesome. I had a Halloween party that got pretty crazy with a lot of fights, but no cops came and it was a good time."
Pat's Haro setup
"Riding for Haro is definitely a dream come true. I mean it's every riders dream sponsor I think, so I'm stoked! It's cool learning about all of their history and being part of something so legendary."
"Riding is getting really crazy and can only get crazier so we'll see. But it's progressing so fast!"
"I'm definitely so thankful for all of my sponsors and all that they have done for me and are still doing for me. They are helping me live my dream of just being able to ride my bike."
"I usually set up my bikes with tall bars and a 20.75 frame. I like my chain to be tight but not too tight and I also ride brakes and pegs."
"I've never really been into training or anything like that. I try to eat healthy anyway but usually I just try to stay comfortable on my bike and just ride consistently all the time."
"I usually ride at least two to three hours a day depending on what I'm going to ride, what I have to do that day, and who I'm riding with."
Private ramp plans
"I used to have a ramp in my parent's backyard when I lived there and living on my own without ramps isn't going to last long at all. I loved being able to just go ride whenever I wanted to. If I had my own ramps and spot I'd definitely ride it all the time."
"I'd like to thank all of my sponsors including Monster Energy, Haro Bikes, Vans, Fox, Bell Helmets and Demolition for always hookin' me up and taking care of me. I'd also like to thank my parents and my girlfriend Chase for supporting me through the years. And thanks Jeremy for doing this interview!"
