When I first started riding I thought BMX was pretty much a North American specific sport. Naive I know but I was pretty young (14) and didn’t really have anyone to tell me any different, I assumed other countries had better things to worry about than riding kids bikes.
Over the years thanks to more media coverage I realized that BMX is pretty much world wide. Thanks to vimeo and youtube it’s much easier to find footage of ridiers all around the world.
So I compiled a list of videos in places that you would not immediately thing ‘BMX’ and posted them here. Enjoy.
New Czech Republic
Shoe-G has been holding it down in Japan for some time
Hong Kong Rider “Milk Boy”
After posting all these videos, mainly the Jamaica one, I got to thinking how hard it must be to get good current parts in some countries.
I think I am going to look in the old parts bin and send some of my better condition stuff over. I can’t imagine what it would be like to get a straight set of bars for free from someone in another country with the same interests as you.
