Smith's interests in BMX go far beyond just riding -- he's also an accomplished welder. "I went to school to learn how to weld because when I was younger, I thought it would be awesome to be able to make BMX bikes when I was older. I also like making things with my hands, seeing the finished product and being able to say that I made that," says Smith.
