X Games BMX Bikes
Ryan Nyquist casually floats a nothing air during BMX Dirt practice at X Games Austin 2015.
During the early February, veteran X Games BMX Park and Dirt driver Ryan Nyquist made an unexpected statement. After over 20 years from the competitive BMX circuit, Nyquist was expanding to the competitive world of hill bicycle riding. At 37 years, most other expert BMX cyclists tend to be winding down their competitive jobs, but Ryan Nyquist isn't the typical BMX pro.
"I've been operating and competing in BMX for over twenty years and I however love it equally as much these days and I did once I started. But for myself, operating has become about pressing myself to produce brand-new objectives, and MTB is another option to challenge myself and advance my riding, " stated Nyquist following the announcement. To really make it official, Nyquist ended up being put into the Haro Bicycles MTB team. (Nyquist has actually ridden when it comes to Haro BMX staff since 1997.)
Inside time since, Nyquist was dividing their time between BMX and mountain cycle cycling. But according to Nyquist, the divide isn't as easy as anticipated. "Switching between bicycles is very tough. Both bicycles have completely different geometry and yet another experience to how they ride, handle, and feel leaping through the atmosphere, " stated Nyquist in an important BMX meeting last thirty days.
Of course, this is Ryan Nyquist we are discussing. And earlier in the day this week, he published pictures of himself to Instagram landing 720 barspins, rocket barspins and much more. "I'm needs to obtain the hang regarding the MTB. Continue to have most strive to do in order to get to in which i wish to be though, " said Nyquist.
Follow Nyquist's mountain cycle progression on Instagram and Facebook, plus don't be surprised whenever we see him straight back on a BMX cycle at X Games Austin 2016. (Nyquist is a dual contender in BMX Park and Dirt at X Games for over ten years now, with 16 medals complete across Park and Dirt.)
