Ryan “Biz” Jordan has been a sponsored professional bike rider for over 20 years. He’s stood the test of time and has grown with the ever-changing landscape of BMX. Even after two decades of success, Biz continues to progress his riding and push the sport. From trail rider / dirt jumper, ramp rider, to street, there is very little that Biz hasn’t done in BMX.
A day over in Huntington Beach with one of my best friends of nearly 40s years, Paul Roberts @grotbags32 drinking coffee, riding along the beach talking BMX and life and everything else in between. We also paused for an hour next to a life guard tower and recorded a quick Podcast for good measure. Paul talks about announcing for Vans last month at the US Open before moving onto some British BMX history talk past and present; Kye Whyte, Neal Wood, Chico Hooke, John Dye, Bobby Hyde, Keith Duly, the list goes on. Paul talks about not being in the Union Video, who was better Geth Shooter or Charlie Reynolds, favorite bikes, magazine coverage, Debbie Scott Webb and Donna Duffy and so much more. If you like a bit of British BMX trivia then you should like this one.
