Feature: In Seattle, No Brakes

On his way to watch the NBA finals in June, Andre ran a red light and crashed into an oncoming car.

Thanks to Josh Monteith for the riding footage.

Andre says he’s closest to his dad.  “Right now,  I haven’t seen my dad in a while – not a year, but like two weeks –  but I’m pretty close to him. I’ll call him on anything, I’ll talk to him on anything,” he said.

“I just gotta pretty much take care of myself, because the last two months I haven’t really been taking care of myself.”

“It’s like a huge blessing that’s awesome (Andre is sponsored by State Bicycle Co.). And it’s nice to see hard work pay off into something.”

    I would say I’m more careful when I’m in a car. They are just so big and the consequences of a crash are way worse. I have been riding a bike longer then I have been driving so I feel more comfortable with my cycling.
