Back in the mid-80s, there was one trick that was considered crazier than all the rest, and that trick was the 900... Mike Dominguez, Brian Blyther, Dave Voelker, and many other talented riders came close but to no avail... and then... in 1989 at a 2 Hip King Of Vert Contest in Canada... a young Mat Hoffman pulled off the unthinkable, which sen ...…
 
When I think of mid 80s BMX and heavy metal, one rider comes to mind and that's Dizz Hicks! His style was symbolic of the era...

When I think of the X Games and BMX legends, it doesn't take long to get to the name Chad Kagy. Chad was a force in BMX Park, Dirt, Vert, and Big Air and always a threat to win any contest he entered. He was also a rider you looked forward to watching because you never knew if he'd pull something out of his bag of tricks that nobody had ever se ...…
 
BMX Flatland contests go back to the early days of BMX. While contests aren't for everyone, they bring a community of like-minded people together for a common interest. VooDoo Jam is the premiere American BMX flatland contest held in New Orleans Louisiana. It brings not only riders from around the United States.... but some of the best riders f ...…
 
I always thought one of the coolest things about BMX freestyle is that you could be different, and still be accepted. You could be yourself and it didn't matter. The term freestyle literally means, do whatever you want, and that’s exactly what Matt Beringer has always done. In the mid-2000s at a time when the X Games was on the come up, growing ...…
 
The X Games. By many thought of as the Super Bowl for action sports. While I haven't personally agreed with everything the X Games have done over the years, it's done a lot of good for action sports, and BMX in general. The 2020 Olympics are right around the corner, and BMX park is a medal competition for the first time in Olympic history. Not ...…
 
As the sport of BMX progressed throughout the mid-90s it became more and more common to see street riders end their video sections with massive gaps and roof drops.

Dirt jumping goes back to the early roots of bmx, and riders have been doing it on bmx tracks and local hand made jumps since the beginning of time. However it wasn't always respected as it's own thing and it certainly wasn't a stand alone discipline in BMX, much less something you could do to make a living. For anyone who started riding in the ...…
 
If you've ridden BMX in the past 35 years, there's a good chance you've either ridden a Haro or know someone who has. The company was founded in 1978 by Bob Haro.

The Whopper, also known as the bunnyhop tailwhip, is one of the coolest BMX tricks ever invented, and it's hard to believe it's been around for almost 30 years. The first time Bill Nitschke pulled it off in 1990 in a Burger King parking lot in Greenwood Indiana, he had no idea of the long term impact that trick would make on the sport of BMX.In ...…
 
Back in the spring of 1988 when I was 14 years old, I was lucky enough to attend Woodward Camp in Pennsylvania. One of the pro instructors there, was Joe Johnson.

When you think of one of the most influential bmx dirt riders over the past 15 years, you have to mention Mark Mulville. Which is crazy when you think about it, because there's no dirt in FL... only sand. His skill level is easy to spot no matter what trails or jumps he rides. He's super smooth, does plenty of stretched out tricks, and has grea ...…
 
The term BMX legend gets thrown around a lot these days. But in this case it's an accurate depiction. Chase Gouin is one of the biggest names ever in BMX flatland and in BMX freestyle in general. He's an icon and also a bit on an enigma. Chase has affected so many riders lives and definitely helped fuse the gap to what is considered current and ...…

Back in January of 1994 I had just flunked out of college and I felt like a complete failure, but I didn't want to return home just yet. I knew of a house with bmx riders that had just come together a couple of months previous and they were looking to take over the upstairs apt but needed a few tenants. So I moved from school directly into what ...…
 
On rare occasion a rider comes along that is so unique they don't fit into BMX the way most other riders do. Back in the 80s that rider was Dave Vanderspek.

When you think of the biggest names in X Games BMX Park history two names stand out above everyone else, Dave Mirra and Scotty Cranmer, both of which won a total of 9 medals in BMX Park.

The first time I saw BMX flatland it was 1985 and I was an 11 year old kid growing up in a small town in Indiana. I walked around the corner from my parents shop as I waited for them to get off work, and saw a guy doing flatland tricks on a red Hutch Trickstar. I could tell right away this guy knew what he was doing. So I sat on the curb and wa ...…
