Rich Sigur, www.facebook.com, january 2009: I was working at a bike shop at the time when this mag came out. I walked passed it several times before I saw it I flipped to the article to see if I had any pictures inside and saw the black in white. I was so happy I didn't think to look at the cover until some people in the shop pointed it out. I could'nt ride home fast enough that night...
Pete Augustin, www.facebook.com, june 2009: I was at this contest and Rich was killing it. One of the best styles ever!!

Riding for Haro.
Rich, www.notfreestylin.com: I started riding for Haro in late 1983 on a product sponsorship, the original freestyler frame was the first product they sent me in the mail so an hour later it was bolted together and out to the quarter pipe I went. The Haro was a full inch shorter than the Supergoose(bmx products) bike I had ridden up until this point.

Rich Sigur, www.facebook.com, january 2009: The white oakleys fit my hands great. It was happy to be getting them for free. They never should have stopped making them.

Rich, www.notfreestylin.com: My sponsor would always get mad at me because I had this habit of painting my bike some weird color like neon green or aqua right before a contest. A few weeks later, Haro got so many letters from kids that wanted bike the same color I had that they had to start producing them. Sometimes the best inventions happen by chance. So I guess you can say I'm sort of the catalyst for the color craze that went on during those years.
