The constant stream of podcasts continues! The Space Brothers Podcast dropped their latest episode where they sit down with Brian Fox to talk about everything from how he got into BMX, his days racing, what made him want to switch over to freestyle, riding big contests like the X Games and more. Brian has been blowing up on the contest scene the past few years doing a ton of wild tricks on his bike. If you want to get to know him a little better, here’s the podcast for you!
“From a competition standpoint It seems like each year we hear about another amazing rider who comes out of seemingly nowhere to become one of the biggest names in the sport. There’s so many incredible riders bursting onto the scene these days. It’s hard to keep track of them all.
One of those riders is Brian Fox. After qualifying in 1st place at last years X Games dirt competition Brian was able to put together a perfect run and ended up with a bronze medal in the finals. Kind of crazy considering he’s spent the majority of his life in Florida where there’s mostly sand. Brian’s not just a dirt jumper, he also competes in BMX park, and rides a lot of concrete bowls and skateparks. It’s safe to say he’s a threat to win any contest he enters!
Even though you might not recognize Brian’s name as well as some of the other competitors, he didn’t come out of nowhere. He’s been around for a little while. I first met Brian while doing a BMX show with Rob Nolli 5 years ago. It was obvious right away Brian had serious skills and pulled off everything he tried. He had an explosive style yet made everything look easy. Since it was a show I only got to see a small sample of what Brian could really do.
A few months later I saw a video of him riding and I was blown away! Brian has that rare combination of skill and power added to today’s most popular video game level tricks and he’s always working on something new!
We sat down with Brian at the Master Blaster Planet Studios and asked him about riding dirt in Florida, his early racing career, the first time he saw freestyle, his secrets to putting together a high scoring run at a major contest, landing his first 1080, riding in Mike Spinner’s backyard, learning from his dad who rode bmx in the 80s, riding for his new sponsor Radio Bikes including his new signature frame, and finding out what his dream contest run would be.
So get comfortable, crank up your speakers, and get to know one of the up and coming heavy hitters in BMX comps for years to come… Brian Fox!”
