This is pretty awesome. It’s not every day we see footage from Jamaica, so it’s good to see there’s a scene growing there. Richard “A-Wire” Lecky has a bigger dream to really put Jamaican riders in front of the world to see. Check out this video to find out more. Somebody make this happen!
“Richard “A-Wire” Lecky is a PRO BMX rider from Jamaica with dreams of competing in the X Games in 2013.
Despite being from a lower income background and having no access to skate parks or bike shops on the island, this 28 year old has overcome numerous obstacles in order to follow his dream. In 2013, he plans to be the first (and only) Jamaican to represent the small island in Freestyle BMX.
Not content with simply competing, A-Wire is already the face of a growing BMX culture in the Caribbean. With big plans to change the face of the sport, he also carries the hope of inspiring kids and other young adults to work hard and follow their dreams despite life’s obstacles.
