December 18, 2017

This is #9 on our list of the Best Moments from 2017. Check out the full list here.

We were stoked this year when the International Olympic Committee announced plans to add BMX Freestyle Park to the official program at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. BMX is one of the oldest action sports, and over the years has built a passionate global fanbase and a highly competitive talent roster in both the women’s and men’s divisions. Every BMX competition leading up to the event has added significance as riders compete for a position on their national teams. Among the riders celebrating the news on their social media were Nitro World Games veterans Daniel Sandoval and Colton Walker, two riders who definitely have a shot at the Games in 2020. 

#BMX freestyle park is confirmed in the @olympics in Tokyo for 2020!!😁🙏
