Monster Energy have released another episode of their Unleashed Podcast for you to check out! This time around they’ve sat Rick Thorne down to hear his story from how he got into BMX through his career as a Pro, appearances in movies, music and much, much more. Hit play and give this a listen!
“The podcast welcomes a true punk rock icon! UNLEASHED sits down with BMX legend Rick Thorne on a no-holds-barred episode. Tune in as podcast hosts The Dingo and Danny discuss the evolution of freestyle BMX with the rider who’s played his part in defining the sport and its lifestyle like few others.
Rick Thorne requires no introduction in BMX circles. Still riding hard at the age of 52, Thorne pushed the evolution of BMX riding as part of the elite Hoffmann Bikes team in the 1990s. At a time when pro BMXers were clean-cut athletes in race jerseys, Thorne earned the nickname ‘The Biker in Black’ by injecting a heavy dose of punk rock attitude and tattoo style. The multi-talent has appeared in blockbuster movies like ‘Mall Cop’ and ‘XXX’, hosted action sports TV programs, and today tours the world as a musician and stand-up comedian.
