Martin 'The Chairman' Aparijo on the left, two blocks from my house in 1986, and yesterday around 4 p.m. at the same location in 2014. Although he was the major pro at GT in the late '80s, Aparijo seemed to signify the generational switch from pre-1988 stationary hopping trick pro to post-1988 rolling trick pro. He was the older more established pro at GT, and I don't think he was ready for the next generation GT flatland pro (Kevin Jones) to come in and blow the doors wide open on what was possible in flatland. I don't mean that as an insult either. It was just a factor during a very progressive time in BMX.
