    best bmx'er?

    i was just wondering who the top bmxer's are and what they specialize in.

    i wanted to look up some videos to watch but i wasn't sure who to search for because i don't know anything about bmx.



    i saw a trailer once that i really liked. i remember it started off with a guy on a halfpipe rolling slowly, then he just jumps off and does a backflip off onto the ramp. (i THINK that's how it started off). can somebody name that video for me please.

    That would most likely be Dave Mirra in the video Sentenced to Life.

    but I wouldn't really say Dave Mirra is the best... everyone is different, so there really is no best.. I would check out the Animal videos (All Day, Can I Eat?) those are some of my favorites and can be conveniently found on google video. As for riders, I'll name my favorites...
    edwin delarosa, bob scerbo, eddie cleveland, tyrone williams, corey martinez, matt beringer, tom white, josh stricker, steve hamilton, van homan, lino gonzalez, jared washington, blackman, dave mirra

    My favorites, more or less in order...
    Eddie Cleveland, Edwin DeLarosa, Ian Schwartz, Chase Hawk, Bob Scerbo, Gary Young

    The Odyssey video is really good, as are the Animal ones and the Lotek Mixtape.

    Yeah, I forgot about the Lotek Mixtape. Eddie Cleveland and Bob Scerbo's parts in that are amazing.

    I like the way Mike Aitken and Edwin Delarosa ride. I also enjoy Adam Banton. Get a hold of the oddessy video its on Limewire and isohunt.com and suck. Its a good watch
    heroes are not the people that are afraid of nothing, heroes are those people that face thier own fears to make something better

    Yeah, pretty much everyone loves Edwin... although sometimes he is criticized for grinding as much as he does. And I do think Tyrone is very underrated... I really like his style.

    I think he's referring to how well-known they are outside of the sport.
