Whenever the snack champion, Ryan Nyquist, gets a camera and a mic in front of him, you know you’re going to get a ton of laughs. Ryan was Mic’d up during a Simple Session practice. As expected, Ryan was full on trash talking, getting some gossip on the money situation from contests and sponsors, throwing down, wanting to ride for Corny and more. This is just shy of 19 minutes, and well worth a look if you want to get some laughs and see some dialed riding.
“It’s been four years since I did a mic’d up with Ryan Nyquist (in the Ride BMX), so I figured it was time we do another. Jump on board with the legend as he pokes and prods his fellow competitors (mostly Boyd Hilder) during practice at Simple Session 2020.” – Our BMX
