The best riders that the BMX sport brings to our attention can change from season to season, that we can admit. However, the all-time legends of the sport rarely change, but just get updated with one or two newcomers that have made a profound impact to the sport. Today, we will be revisiting those legends that have remained in the sports history books, long after their reign. Some of them actually helped mould the sport to what we see today. If you are intrigued to know more about the sport and keep up to date after the FISE World Montpellier, check out all the latest sports news today.
Mat Hoffman The first of the biggest legends that this sport has to offer, is none other than Mat Hoffman. We genuinely cannot think of anyone else that deserves the top spot more than him. Mat is a 10-time world champion, with six medals from the X Games alongside the credit he has for inventing multiple forms of tricks that we see being demonstrated, he certainly deserves the spot and remains a role model to many youths participating today. Mat is able to perform a perfect 900 landing, in addition to a no handed 900 too!
The Guinness Book of World Records also mentions Hoffman for his 24-foot quarter pipe that he executed. During the year 2002, Hoffman managed to get an award from ESPN Action, the Sports Lifetime Achievement Award. Not many BMX riders can say that they have an award named after them, so this should justify enough how he is most deserving to be named as an all-time legend.
