People have been asking about Pro BMX Skills, the BMX how-to book that was supposed to be finished by now. This pains me to say, but Life (capital L) has gotten very hectic, and I’ve had to put the book on the back burner.
Our man Chris Powell is too smart for his own good, and here is his latest creation.
This weekend I rocked the Intense Factory Alloy 20 on The Fix pump track, and the results were surprising.
I am riding a 20, and it is good. Impressions from the first ride:
The new BMX technique book has a name, and it’s going to be ultra sweet. I just put up a quick page:
Pro BMX Skills covers equipment, technique, tactics and training with a depth and clarity never before seen in BMX (or most other sports). I’ve partnered with some of the best riders in the sport, and their knowledge and talent come through in a big way.
If you want to ride safer and faster, you need this book.

BMX racers are the kings of jump manipulation. One of today’s top pros shows us how to “pick up” for a big face.
Mike Kreger is one of the smoothest dirt jumpers (and racers) you’ll ever see. Yesterday we shot some sequences for the BMX book. Here’s Mike pumping a set of double jumps.
Here’s another gem from the BMX book. I’m pinned but getting ‘er done.
Chris Powell was gracious enough to intentionally case this high-speed double on the Chula Vista Olympic track. He made even this bad landing look good.
I’m busy working on the BMX book, and I have to share this. It’s RAD!!!
I recently spent a couple days at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA, interviewing, shooting and — yes — riding the Bejing replica track. It was like BMX, only way bigger.
Lots of fun stuff:
Our man Chris Powell got a chance to ride the new BMX SX track at the Olympic training center in Chula Vista, CA. The track is a close copy of the Bejing track, and it’s HUGE!!! Chris sent a couple photos:
