Lewis Cunningham may only be 15 years old, but he's already been on Animal Bikes for a couple of years. We've been sharing videos of Lewis since he was 11. Seriously, 11 years old. The kid's been killing it from an early age!
The words 'street prodigy' have been thrown around whenever Lewis's name has been mentioned for some time already, and we assume they'll continue as long as Lewis keeps developing his riding.
What we like about this video is the scale of ability... Lewis shows a good solid style and great technical ability. Amazing balance too, both in manuals and on lengthy rails. Bossing it!
Read on for some info on Animal Bikes...
Animal Bikes = street riding. There are no two ways about it. Few brands have garnered as much respect in our industry (and outside it, it must be said) as Animal Bikes. Think of New York City street, think of BMX and hip hop, think of Ralph Sinisi, Bob Scerbo, Butcher, Edwin Delarosa, Tom White, Chase Dehart or Benny L (to name but a few)… Think Animal.
“I incorporated Animal Bikes on January 1st, 2000 to represent and supply bike parts for BMX street riding for the new century. My riding crew in and around New York City pedaled around all day and night finding amazing spots and getting as crazy as we could on them. Whenever someone would do a wild move, they were called an Animal. It only made sense for me to call the company Animal as it was based on the toughest parts for the craziest riders." –Ralph Sinisi, Animal Bikes
Our UK young gun, Lewis Cunningham, has been working on this edit over the last year, and damn did he come through with the heat! There's no doubt Lewis will become a serious force in the streets over the next few years.
