BMX Bike Racing1774

Nowadays, many young people don’t just use bicycle as a means to carry them to school or work. For some people, the term B boy or BM boy is not strange at all.

BMX Dirt Racing has been contested as an Olympic sport since the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The correct name for B boy is BMX. The full name is BICYCLE MOTOCROSS. It is a cross-country cycling sport that emerged in the United States in the mid to late 1970s. It got its name because it has fewer models, thicker tires and races on tracks similar to those used for motocross. The sport quickly became popular among young people, and by the mid-1980s most of them were so influenced by skateboarding culture that they felt it was too one-dimensional to play only in the dirt. So I started to take the BMX to the flat, skateboarding field to play, and play more tricks than skateboarding, jump higher, more exciting. Its name became BMX FREESTYLE (freestyle BMX cycling).、
