Overview About BMX Freestyle
Bicycles of many types are used for various sports disciplines, but the most extreme version of cycling is possible only on BMX bicycles. Formerly considered as bicycle variant of motorcycle motocross racing, first BMX drivers formed several BMX Motocross Racing competitions that are today held all over the world (and have managed to receive an official place on the summer Olympics), BMX Freestyle competitions slowly became a competition on their own. This type of competition is focused on stunt riding, which I separated into several distinct disciplines that all encourage drivers to express themselves as much as possible while driving a BMX bicycle.
From the date of 1987, Games of BMX Freestyle has reached the topmost of its popularity in a very short time, with the attention of media, manufacturers, and sponsors providing the constant drive for innovation. The new BMX bicycles that were fully optimized for various forms of Freestyle driving were unconfined all the time, and users could easily accessorize and customize their bicycles. However, after 1987, sponsors and manufacturers reduced their monetary investment into the sport, and organized competitions became rarer and rarer.
Now, BMX drivers can trial themselves into one of the five disciplines of Freestyle, although no fixed rules exist for any of them. Drivers are encouraged to be creative and to use all their skill to present the most stylish and aesthetically pleasing tricks and routines. Modern BMX Freestyle disciplines are:
Street – Bicycles optimized for preforming trick routines on streets, utilizing obstacles that were placed there naturally as the city grew (handrails, curbs, stairs, banks, ledges and more.
The Park – Freestyle performing in parks who were specifically made to host skate or BMX-friendly obstacles such as ramps, transitions, and others. These parks may offer fixed routes for practicing runs, or randomly placed objects that are forcing performers to be inventive with their routines.
The Vert – BMX Freestyle performing that is done while riding in the half pipe. These objects are usually 2.5 to 3.5-meter-tall, although larger ramps are used for some competitions (X-Games ramps go up to 8.2m). While all other disciplines are focused on tricks that are made on the ground, Vert style is fully focused on tricks made while BMX bike is in the air.
The Trails – Tracks created using dirt and rocks, usually made as a series of lines and hills that are placed in the gaps of between few to 12 feet.
The Flatland – BMX Freestyle discipline that is performed on a flat surface that has no obstacles. Clear area of pavement is the most popular because it gives drivers consistent surface grip.
