Generally, we try and stay away from heavily opinionated posts on the site, since we feel our opinion is just one voice of many, many BMX riders around the world and everyone has a different perspective on this sport of ours. But, today we are seeing a lot of discussion about the future of BMX contests after seeing the plan for the Nitro World Games, which is ultimately looking for a new way to expose BMX, moto-x, skateboarding and a few other action sports to the masses in hopes of pumping the industries full of energy and revived life that many feel is struggling to get the attention of the masses anymore. So, we’re going to toss out our perspective and then we’re hoping to get a lot of discussion going in the comments whether it be here, Facebook or really anywhere we can get riders to discuss their ideas or dreams of where to take this thing we call BMX next.

“The Vans Rebel Jam kicked off yesterday with the first practice session, and as you can imagine the riding was heavy. Although the space was limited, Brian Kachinsky and Jeff K made the most of it with an extremely technical park that gives the rider plenty of options. Take a look into what dudes like Simone Barraco, Bruno Hoffman, Garrett Reynolds, Sean Sexton, Dakota Roche, Ty Morrow, Dan Lacey, Shawn McIntosh, and many more threw down.” – Ride BMX
