Do you remember the first BMX event you went to this year and how did it go? Nick Bruce: The first BMX event of 2017 was the Monster BMX Triple Dirt jump contest in Anaheim, California.

Call him the veteran, or just the most experienced rider out there. But never count him out. The BMX legend continues to ride because he loves it and because he knows he still has it. 2017 is in the books. Bring on 2018.
