In the early 1980’s, The Haro BMX Freestyle team was in high demand. Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Dave Nourie and Mike Dominguez were living the dream, travelling to the four corners of the world demonstrating the progression of a sport that was fast becoming an international phenomenon. Over an action packed ten year period, and a blur of intense progression, they took the slams, broke the bones, bent the steel and destroyed the vehicles on a campaign of ground breaking energy that covered almost every civilised and uncivilised country on earth.
The opportunity to reform the team and follow up on the success of the 2009 reunion show was discussed with a wider group of stakeholders, including Haro Bikes Chief Operating Officer; Joe Hawk, who commented... “When Dom and Stephan approached me with the idea in Vista, the timing was perfect. At Haro, we truly recognise the value and efforts of the Old School BMX community and were keen to pledge our support and resources towards a great and exciting project”.
