With the Vans BMX family since 2010, Dakota’s style is often portrayed as “skateboarding on a bike.” His relentless and innovative riding earned him Ride BMX Magazine’s 2015 Street Rider of the Year award, followed by a heavy ender part in Vans’ 2016 Illustrated video. With an endless list of contest results, awards and video parts, Dak’s powerful riding continuously pushes the boundaries of BMX.
