|1974||Date of birth: 23 avril 1974 |
I was born and raised in Walnut Creek, CA. It is about 30 miles east of San Francisco.
|1987||I got my first real bike in the summer of 1987. I saved up money from my paper route, went to the bike store and bought a GT Performer, not knowing it was a freestyle bike. I had no idea what the pegs were used for, so I bought a BMX Plus magazine and studied it and tried to duplicate the tricks in it. I pretty much rode the first year by myself in front of my house.|
|1988||I got some friends in my neighborhood to start riding with me. Then I met Andrew Arroyo and Jeff Tsai at my school.
I was really lucky because there were some amazing pros in the Bay Area that got together every sunday for a session at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. After watching some savvy links from names like Aaron Dull, Carly Garcia, Eric Emmerson, Pete Brandt, Drob, and Joe Paluci, my friends and I were all stoked to go home and ride hard all week.

I decided to move down to Southern California in the summer of 1996 to persue my dream of riding my bike for a living. Within a few months of relocating to Huntington Beach I got my first big pro sponsorship from GT bikes. I traveled an average of 200 days a year doing bike shop, NBA, NCAA, CBA, county and state fair, corporate and many other shows across Canada and the US with GT under Woody Itson's program. I did this until 2002 when most of the team moved over to Giant bikes.

Gabe Weed has been riding a lot this winter. He had quite a few new moves including a forward rope to gliding lardyard turbined backwards. From there he steps over the head tube, kicks the tire forward and rides out on the opposite side.
