Having Mike Hoder on TCU TV has been quite literally a dream of mine since we first started doing these interviews. Hoder is a guy that everybody knows but that nobody really knows what to think of. If you run into him during daylight hours you might be surprised to find that Hoder is one of the nicest, kindest guys around and when he’s in the mood for it, one of the craziest BMX riders of all time. But if you catch him after hours, all bets are off. That duality is what makes him so fascinating and at least part of what has made Hoder so beloved by so many people in BMX. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you… Mike Hoder.
