The drive-by celebration has become a staple for celebrating big moments in 2020, and the holidays will be no exception. This past weekend, X-Games gold medalist Terry Adams took on the spirit of the season with a two-mile ride through JINGLE BEAT, Nashville’s outdoor drive-thru light, sound and sensory experience. While guests enjoyed enchanting lights from the comfort of their car, Terry put on his own display of showstopping tricks, captured through the lens of Nashville-based celebrity photographer, Robby Klein.
“It was a fun opportunity to have the racetrack to myself,” said Terry. “Riding around with all the lights made it feel like a real-life video game.”
Terry is no stranger to taking the sport of Flatland BMX to places it’s never been before. To celebrate this year’s Harvest Moon, the 2020 NORA Cup Rider of the Year brought Flatland to the edge of a cliff in Northwest Arkansas for a special photo project.
