|1972||DOB: 29 juin 1972
Birthplace: HOMESTEAD, FL USA
Rob Nolli: I got into riding in 1984, when I got the first issue of Freestylin' magazine for my birthday. I already had a bike, and I just wanted to try everything I saw the pros doing in the magazines. Everything. I mostly rode flatland, but I had built a dirt jump in my back yard, a wedge ramp in my driveway, and a quarter pipe in the back of the house. The only aspect I never really got into was racing. There was not a track around were I lived.
Rob Nolli: My first sponsor was in '88 a local bike shop in Stuart, FL. They paid for me to enter all of the local AFA contests.

Rob Nolli: UGP was my first real sponsor. Ron Bonner gave me clothes and helped me with entry tees for all of the early Hoffman contest. It was a one hundred dollar entry fees and you had to at least place fourth to get your money back.
Rob Nolli: April 1993, I was at the Hoffman contest in Shimmersville PA, and was introduced to Woody Itson, the new team manager for GT. I spoke with him at the contest and immediately sent him a resume and video. It started out by getting bikes, and then in the summer of '94 he called me and asked me to go on an 18-day tour in China with Bart de Jong, Stephan Prantl, John Parker, Day Smith, Chris Young, Todd Seligman and Pat Miller.
