Torker To The MAX!
I am so stoked to see this to see this come come full circle and be entrusted with us. Alans BMX were the Torker importer from April 1981 until their bankruptcy in November 1984. We then purchased all their frame inventory in February 1985 and continued to sell the brand in the UK throughout the 80’s and beyond right up till they became collectible! Now with this new Torker range we are working very closely with the brand and hope to set the gold standard for BMX heritage. We will be distributing throughout the UK and Europe and I can’t wait to share what we have planned.

We could of never thought of a better partner in the UK than Alan Woods. Alan, truly is BMX, he has the passion the heart, and is not in it for the money, but in it for the fun and the joy that BMX brings us all. And after a few long talks, not only was I proud to bring Supercross and Speedline back to the UK in Alan’s care, but also the newest project, Torker Racing and Max BMX Products. It feels good to be back home!

About ALANS BMX
Founded in 1981, the oldest BMX shop in the UK has seen it all in 42 years. Supporting the scenes whether that is a race team, park (we helped Charlotte Worthington on the way to a gold medal in Tokyo), street riders and now flatland. BMX runs in our blood! In 2001 we put on the very very first Old School BMX event on in the UK and have seen that grow into what it is today. In November 2022 Alan was inducted into the British BMX Hall of fame in the category Pioneer BMX Racer. BMX4LIFE.
Torker was founded originally in 1975 as Texacon and was later converted to the Torker brand by Steve Johnson, the co-founder and head honcho of the brand. Now Torker after years of floundering is back on stable feet in the Supercross BMX compound.
