Hollywood Mike Miranda 'Jamming With The Rad Lads' 1986.
Hollywood Mike Miranda, BMX Legend and Film Critic LOL. An interview 'Jammin With The Rad Lads' hosted by Mick Brown at the 1986 Weetabix World BMX Champs at Slough, UK. Michael Felty formerly Miguel Juan Miranda (born November 15, 1963, in Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.) is a former American "Old School" professional Bicycle Motocross (BMX) racer whose prime competitive years were from 1981-1986. His previous surname which he is still widely and most familiarly known by, "Miranda", was his stepfather's name. There seem to be two stories on how he got his nickname "Hollywood". It was either coined by Bicycle Motocross Action (BMXA) editor Steve Giberson because he likes to "show off"; or he had pretty much given himself the moniker by having a name sticker under the visor of his helmet reading "My name is Hollywood", which was noticed at the 1981 NBA Rancho Nationals. Here is how he tells it in this 1982 quote: "This guy I know that races motorcycles in Southern California is a real jerk. Every time you did something stupid, we would call you by his last name. 'You're such a Smith.' And at the Super Bowl of Motocross three years ago (in 1979), he raced and had "Hollywood" on the back of his jersey. From then on, whenever you did something stupid, we would say: 'You're such a Hollywood'. It was meant as a putdown but now I guess it's a compliment. I just tell people that they call me that because I like to show off. Steve Giberson started it." -----Mike Miranda Super BMX April 1983.
