It’s always a bummer hearing about BMX losing a great rider. We just found out that last month Smillin’ Steve Kennedy had lost his life when he was struck by a vehicle walking. Not sure on the exact details, but it’s definitely a sad situation. It has been a little while since we’ve heard or seen anything from Steve, but he was still out riding and crushing it like he had been back in 2007 when we interviewed him on the site. Andy Maguire was sitting on some footage that he had and decided to edit up one last video of Steve for everyone to check out. Rest In Peace, Steve!
“On August 7th of this year, the riders in Santa Cruz lost a dear friend. Steve had a contagious smile and could pretty much do anything on a bicycle. We are all going to miss you, friend, ride in peace.”
We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
