★ X Games competitor
Idaho native Kurtis Downs is one of the most dynamic and innovative BMX riders in the game. He tends to keep a low profile, but his podium finish at the inaugural Nitro World Games in BMX Best Tricks and his medal in his first-ever X Games are testaments to his skill. His super technical riding that is inspired by FMX — including the World First BMX stripper flip — is something you don’t want to miss.
