BMX The Game is a new era for BMX games, with the aim of becoming a benchmark for action sports games such as the EA SKATE saga. Created by Barspin Studios, a team that is passionate about action sports video games, which wants to bring the game that the BMX community demanded.

However, they are already working on many other game modes, all of them competitive. But above all, it is a video game focused on the creation of content and personalization.
Currently, the game is still in development and since last August 28 on Steam Early Access at a price of € 19.99 / $ 24'99, with a 25% discount this week. Barspin Studios' goal is to increase the community that provides feedback to filter development priorities.

Your iPhone, Android or Windows based smartphone or tablet’s home screen isn’t just for apps. Whatever platform you’re using, you can pin FATBMX to your home screen so you can quickly access the latest worldwide BMX news 24/7. Here's how.
Add FATBMX to the Home Screen on your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch
Launch the Safari browser on Apple’s iOS and navigate to the home page of FATBMX.com. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar — that’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. It’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch.
Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.The FATBMX shortcut will be added with a nice icon and can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon. When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.
Other browsers, like Chrome for iOS, don’t offer this feature. Due the limitations in Apple’s iOS, only Apple’s own Safari browser is allowed to do this.
Add FATBMX to the Home Screen on your Android Phone or Tablet
Launch Chrome for Android and and navigate to the home page of FATBMX.com. Tap the menu button and tap Add to homescreen.
You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen. Chrome for Android loads the website as a “web app” when you tap the icon, so it will get its own entry in the app switcher and won’t have any browser interface getting in the way.
Other popular Android browsers also offer this feature. For example, Firefox for Android can do this if you tap the menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.
For other browsers, please check the documentation of your browser app.
Add FATBMX to the Home Screen on Windows 10, 8, & RT
Windows 10, 8, and RT devices also offer a way to pin websites to your Start screen. This is obviously most useful on phones and tablets, not on desktop PCs where you don’t want to see the Start screen. On the Windows desktop, you can pin website shortcuts to your taskbar for easier access.

Big news today, although if you follow Julian Molina you may have realized something was up, but today it's official. Julian Molina is riding for GT. The BMX world got their first taste of Julian Molina back in 2013, when a photo surfaced of a scrawny kid in tattered clothes stretching a no-hander on a jalopy of a bike with only one leg. The photo was shared with the caption, “When you catch yourself complaining that your frame is too short or that you don’t like your bars, just think of this kid in Columbia, who’s roasting a no-hander on some beat up bike with one-fucking-leg. Julian is the man.” Damn right, Julian is the man. Not only was that image inspiring, but it slapped you across the face with perspective, for despite being both disadvantaged and handicapped, this kid from Columbia clearly saw no limits of what he was capable of. The key word here is limits, which, Julian doesn’t appear to have.
Over the course of the next eight years, Julian’s progression skyrocketed beyond what anyone probably ever imagined. With the culmination being the opportunity to film a video for the X Games Real BMX series in 2020. Where Julian was pitted against five of the best BMX riders in the world, each having to film a 90 second video part to later be judged by, well, more legendary BMX riders. When all was said and done, not only was Julian in the spotlight on the world stage, with the show being aired on NBC, but he also took the Fan Favorite win by a landslide.

Part of a new head-to-toe Vans x CULT collection, the Old Skool Pro BMX brings together CULT’s iconic graphic details and styling with one of Vans’ most classic silhouettes. Designed to perform at the level of shared team riders like Dakota Roche, Sean Richany, and Angie Marino, the shoe features Vans’ revolutionary WAFFLECUP BMX, a first-of-its-kind technology in BMX that delivers the best combination of support and durability without sacrificing pedal feel. Specifically designed and tested by and for BMXers, WAFFLECUP BMX features a herringbone underlayer that adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound with a more rigid flex pattern, all reinforced like a tank.
