Jason Phelan

Age: 24
Hometown: Waterford, Ireland | Residing: Liverpool, UK
Years riding: 12
Sponsors: Nike 6.0, Wethepeople, Bawbags Underwear
What bike do you ride: I’m currently riding my own signature frame, The Irish with a mix of Wethepeople and eclat parts.
Brakes: I’m afraid to say yes.
Peg setup: I do like the grind.
Fav riders & influences: Ruben, Homan, Doyle, Peter Adam – way too many to mention them all. Influences would be those guys and anyone just having a good time on their bike and pushing their own limits. Other Influences right now, people who have a 9 to 5 job doing the same thing over and over again – something I want to avoid for a least a couple more years.
What motivates you: Seeing other riders push themselves and to see how excited they get when they land something they’re psyched on, riders doing their own thing and people who aren’t too lazy on a day to day basis. I think I’m pretty self-motivated myself, I always feel like I can do more and I like it that way – I love just pushing myself on and off the bike.
Fav bands: Don’t really have any I just like music. I listen to pretty much everything, well there are a few exceptions. Not into dub step, Hip Hop, Gabba, Trance, Eskimo, Line Dancing.
Hobbies or other interests: Well right now I’m in France snowbiking and over Christmas I went abseiling [rappelling] down the side of an abandoned building – so I like to do a lot of other things besides riding. I also do a lot of filming and editing. I have my own website called where I upload my videos to and sell t-shirts to anyone who wants one. Maybe there will be some parts soon, who knows?
