This man honestly does not need an introduction but I’m going to try anyway… Ryan Nyquist has been a professional BMX rider for over 20 years, competing in the X-Games for almost as long.
One of my first DVDs was Drop The Hammer in which he had an AMAZING part. Fast forward to now and he has been dabbling in (and doing well in) the MTB world while still keeping true to his roots with BMX contests such as Simple Session and Vans BMX Pro Cup contest. Nyquist still manages to make mind bending edits for his long time sponsor Haro Bikes and is now coaching the USA female BMX team for the Olympics. What a guy!
Recently he was in Brussels for a meeting and stayed in Eindhoven for the weekend, where we met up for a killer session and shot these five rare, vintage, almost extinct, relic BMX tricks…
