Urban Pirouette - Freestyle BMX in Barcelona
I recognize there is a whole world behind freestyle bmx, and I enjoy watching impossible pirouettes like these as I walk along the beach, but my hair is turning gray so I prefer to follow it from the distance and practice with my camera. Nevertheless, the fact that I am too old to practice doesn't mean my younger visitors have to sit and get bored looking at my architecture pictures. If you want to know more about bikes, and especially this style check this link: Freestyle BMX Tricks.

MX (which is short for Bicycle Motocross) started out as a bicyle version of motocross, with specially designed bicyles racing over dirt tracks with bumps and jumps. People soon discovered that small, lightweight BMX bikes were ideal for stunts and tricks, and Freestyle BMX was born. Freestyle BMX is now split into several kinds of riding, including Flatland (tricks on a flat surface such as tarmac), Street (riding on a street course with steps and other obstacles), Ramps (in a skate park or dedicated BMX park) and Vert (riding ramps or bowls with vertical or near vertical sides).
In 2008 for the first time BMX racing was included in the Olympic Games. Britains's best hope was women's world champion 19 year old Shanaze Reade, who reached the final but unfortunately came off her bike while attempting to overtake the leader and ended up last.
If you are interested in BMX racing, visit www.britishcycling.org.uk which has details of BMX racing clubs.
There are a lot of BMX riders around Finchampstead and Wokingham. Good places for Free-style Ramp riding are St Crispin's in Wokingham and Mill Park - Wild Ridings in Bracknell. Unfortunately so far there is nowhere provided for Free-stylers to ride their bikes in Finchampstead. BMX riders end up using the streets or car parks but we don't recommend this as there is always a danger of someone getting hurt.  (Some riders used to use the car park near the former Gorse Ride community centre, but this is now a building site for the new community centre).  Anyone who wants to ride ramps needs a willing adult with a car to drive them to a skate park.
We have discovered some good web sites.  For those who want to learn tricks try the bmx-zone.com site. Another site that has good videos is www.vitalbmx.com.
Beginners can buy a BMX bike from most good bike shops. More experienced riders can have their bikes custom build by using parts that are available from online BMX sites.
Remember that it makes sense to always wear safety gear when riding BMX.

Tim Ruck, Ride BMX UK, october 1994 : The top lad was Jay Miron, perhaps not unsurprisingly, the bestest tricks being: alley-oop over the spine to grind backwards on the opposite side, then back over, off the volcano over spine to grind, back again, an aborted flip attempt (over the spine) and foot-planting the railing behind the ramp as a set-up trick to get plenty of speed for big airs over the spine, also warp-speed no brake nosewheelies and bottom-side icepick grinds, the spine being his fave I guess. Stuart King pulled a truck driver over the spine (some idiot stole his bike, a practically new lengthy, so for vert the next day he rode John Taylor's GT). Stephan Prantl, the ride-like-a-tyrant German Pro, VERY dedicated and rad, was 360 tyre-tapping over the spine whilst flailing one hand overhead with assorted other lip-trickery. My eye-witness was so enamoured with Miron's riding this was all the info I could gleam

Tim Ruck, Ride BMX UK, october 1994 : Sunday must have been a bit hectic for the organisers. they had to get through most of the flatland and all of the vert, not an easy task with the threat of rain looming overhead all day. The final day of the contest started off with the biggest flatland crowd you're ever likely to see ready to witness some of the most advanced flat riding you're ever likely to see. The large banked sides of the park made a great grandstand. The spinniest most contorted around-the-bike links were being done by Jesse Puente, one move was half a steamroller combined with a bar-hop (not climbing over, jumping) so he lands in an elephant glide, a flatland vision from God basically, speaking for myself I was almost moved to tears after his run (I said almost). Sean McKinney gelled in his run, but according to an impartial bystander, "He's got the ego and breakdancing to make up for it, and let's face it that's what counts in flatland nowadays." You see, after failing several moves he chucked his bike and started breaking right there on the contest arena. Tarmac. Harsh, After his nicely connected and fairly dab-free run, Phil Dolan rode back to a barrage of high-5's from his flatland bros (pros), there was more slapping of skin than in the peep shows in Amsterdam.

Tim Ruck, Ride BMX UK, october 1994 : There were quite a few riders in this chaos, ranging from street's roots like Bart de Jong, Lars Hansen, to big moves like Hoffman, Miron, Johnny Petit. The big tricks were what the crowd were baying for, so that's what I'll give ya! Miron's best were a stretched one-handed one foot over a kinked concrete hip, fast nose wheelies across the concrete box, a MASSIVE straight flip over the jump box (which had started his run) and a one-hand to one-hand truck driver as effortless as if it'd been a straight x-up. I'm not sure if Johnny Petit entered or was just in practice, but pulled off big flips, supermans, and needy pulled or possibly at some point pulled, framewhip 360 over the jump, made a big impression on all onlookers.
Hoffman - the mere mention of his name sent the crowd crazy, be dabbed a couple of framewhip tricks, one footslap on the wall, the other being airing the concrete hip, but he satisfied the flip-crazy crowd with a big no-handed one out of the soft high concrete bank, over the spectators and a fence to land outside the park. Or, it could have been over the jumpbox - I was trying to get into position to take a photo and the angle I was watching from was a bit tricky it might have well have been out of the park with the noise the crowd made.
Not as much noise as they made for the cold-lampin' Ice Money, from the United States. His biggest move was a rock-walk drop-in off the jumpbox, I reckon his game plan was if you entered a pro race, maybe everyone would fall off and you'd win, but this strategy doesn't work in freestyle. But, he did have a Mr T haircut and flash see-through body-armour.

Tim Ruck, Ride BMX UK, october 1994 : Thursday was the date set for the start of the contest, that was until we got there and were told street had already been held (on Wednesday) except for the pros, who were to ride in the afternoon, As everyone mingled and remade old acquaintances, there were already hilarious tales circling about Sea Of Horror ferry crossings and the various treks people had made to the contest, from the UK, US, Austria, Holland, France, Denmark, there was a true international flavour to this Worlds, The skatapark was pretty well laid out : 10/11 foot half pipe, spined 7ft mini ramp, and large street course with big banks running round two sides with one part leading to a large wall ride, small hip ramp, old school 1/4 pipe, concrete transitioned funbox with small handrail, and a large steep jumpbox which various people were skying over (and off - someone 360'd it and missed the landing, the box was about 6ft high). There was a smaller 5ft high mini behind the vert, but the contest was to be on the spine, which a few people found disconcerting as it was larger than at most comps. There were different colour wrist bands to wear depending on whether you'd paid to spectate, enter, or were a VIP/organiser/press. This was then supposedly enforced by marshalls on the two entrances, in reality though people were going in and out of all the areas (spectators were meant to be in a separate part) and there were loads of people riding that weren't entering which was cool, good sessions, but not-so-cool if you'd paid to ride (20Dm).
