Simply put BMX came from Motocross. The connection between the two still remains. Josh Hill has seen both worlds as his dad was a sponsored GT Freestyle rider back in the day doing sick turndowns. Josh still has a BMX bike but currently is busy making mains at the Supercross series that travels around the USA. Josh is also someone exploring new terrain, riding his Dirt Bike in ditches, in the streets and sometimes skateparks. When noise is an issue, and speed is needed, the E-bike comes into play. We fired over some questions to Josh. Answers below.
