part in the Lightning Bolts Art Show. Unique works from artists such as Nick Philip, Andy Jenkins, Rich Hansen, and Michael Lau will debut in Beijing, China on May 13th. The artwork will later be auctioned off to help action sports foundation The Land of Plenty as they introduce at-risk youth to the world of BMX.
Lightning Bolts pays homage to the creative spark in BMX, past and present. The event unites an international mix of originality, all touched (or warped) by BMX. It connects the pioneers, including legends such as Bob Haro, “The Father of Freestyle,” with the new-school Nike 6.0 BMX athletes like Mike Spinner, who stuck the first 1080 in BMX competition in 2008. 6.0 Athletes Nigel Sylvester and Maxime Charveron will also be present showcasing the next generation of athletes who will continue the progression of BMX.
