Terry continues to redefine the perceived limits of what Flatland BMX is and where it can go. By showcasing his trademark tricks at JINGLE BEAT, he continues push the sport into 2021 with the style
Terry Adams came from nothing and became a legend. His exceptional career started in Louisiana and brought him two NORA Cup Number One rider awards, multiple XGames medals and many more awards. For me he is the definition of a self-made pro rider.
