R-Willy Earns an Invite to X Games Minneapolis

It’s official. Ryan “R-Willy” Williams has been invited to compete at X Games Minneapolis. It’s a major career milestone for an athlete once primarily known for riding a scooter. His path to X Games glory is an unusual one. He will face BMX pros who have built their careers in the action sports competition circuit and have experience in the event’s format. But X Games veterans are facing a novel challenge of their own. They have never competed against a rider like this before. R-Willy honed his considerable BMX skills through years of touring with Nitro Circus. It’s earned him countless World Firsts and double wins in BMX Best Tricks at the Nitro World Games. If fortune favors the bold this year, R-Willy is not to be overlooked. Check out R-Willy’s big announcement and thanks to all the fans who have supported him:

R-Willy didn’t earn his shot resting on his laurels. He earned it by proving he can handle the X Games ramp setup. We have followed his progress on the mega ramp over the last few months. Check out some of his practice runs:
