Pro BMX Skills: It’s tangible!
After 2+ years of work, I’m holding a proof copy of the book Pro BMX Skills. It feels heavy. Thick. Good.
Here’s what it looks like:
There she is: the most complete treatment of BMX equipment, techniques, tactics and training ever printed.
I shot technique photos at the Olympic Training Center (left), and I got race photos from Mike Carruth at bmxnow.com. Super sweet.
A couple ways to ride a camel hump, from the Flow Around the Track chapter.
Thanks to Jason Smith at Commerce Printing in Sacramento, CA for the proof copy. (Jason is an avid MTB and moto rider.)
– Re-shoot a few photos.
– Fine-tune some images.
– Attack this thing with a red pen.
– Pull the trigger and get it printed.
– Unleash my new gate start technique on the WORLD!
Know more. Have more fun!

Siiiiiiiiiiiick!!! I cant wait to learn BMX techniques and unleash them on singletrack!!!
Looks great, Lee! Definitely a great manual to help one manual, and beyond1
Props on getting it done.
Thanks Mike. And thanks for your awesome photos!
Awesome bro! It looks wicked, and ready to change the world of BMX!
When does V.2 come out?
MMBSii will be out this spring, according to the publisher. Looks like I’ll have two books coming out around the same time. Crazy.
Dad and I are very proud of you. Amazing accomplishment, considering everything you have on your full plate!
Golly, thanks Mom and Dad!
I’m stroked about the new book – and I don’t even ride BMX. Is there something there for those of us who stay 26″ and up?
BTW, I think I’ve read MMBS more than any other book I’ve bought in the last 5 years. I was thinking about dirt jumping this morning and I can review your text in my head, I’ve read it so often. Looking forward to MMBSii, too.
Yes, Pro BMX Skills contains lots of stuff that mountain bikers will find valuable. Lots of detail on pump, crazy awesomenes about sprinting, and — the highlight of the book — how pros ride various BMX obstacles (which are essentially smoothed out natural obstacles).
If you race 4X, the whole book will help you.
It looks great Lee!
Looks great! Sign me up!
Looks great Lee! I can only imagine the amount of work it took to create this book. Thank you again for bringing light to the darkness!!
The red pen is running low on ink!
im going in the book store next week and order it as your prewious book. greetings from slovenia:)
Is this great looking book going to be available in New Zealand? If not, can it be purchased from you over the net?
Looks just what a old timer returning to BMX racing needs to read!
Yes, you’ll be able to buy it online. I’ll start lining up the printing when I return home from Sea Otter.
Any further updates on when the book should hit the shelves Lee?
I’ve done the research and taken the advice to step back, and now I’ve decided how to publish this book. I’m going to do online on-demand publishing rather than traditional print-a-bunch-then-warehouse-them. I only need a few photos (easy, now that the weather is good), and then it’s into production.
On-demand printing lets me get the book out there without a big up-front printing cost. Soon, my friends, soon.
When, july, august, september ???
I just can’t wait for another great book.
I need five (only 5 out of hundreds!) photos. Trying to line up a photographer this week, then the huge pdf goes to the printer. They’ll do a technical review and no doubt tell me to make some fixes. Not sure how long that will take, but this thing is finally gonna be done!
