I Feel BMX is the lifestyle, it is not dangerous sports until you push it to the limit
I ride for Fun it’s my hobby, there are no rules you can ride how you want you can wear whatever you want you can create you own tricks ride in your own style BMX is much more freeing, it really gives you a sense of freedom when you’re moving fast down the street and jumping with a bike of 8kg weight straight up flying high in the air.
My Team Shaprtune, we motivate each other I don’t expect any thing return

My name is Shubham Negi i am 20 years old I am living Chandigarh I am a Bmx freestyle rider, when I ride my bike I think I am in a different world this thing makes me high. Bmx is a part of my life I keep it in my living room so its easy to watch it everyday. When I am on my bike i become a different personality, people watch and they give a shocking reaction that thing makes me feel special and unique. I am motivated from the BSD family they have done what I didn’t deserve they have helped me with the parts and this thing makes me motivated in my entire life. In return I get peace, which is the most important thing in our life.

My Name is Abhishek Soni and am from Chandigarh,I ndia. I am 19 years old. I ride Bmx flatland. I’m riding Bmx since 2010. From the beginning I was interested in extreme sports. I’ve always been passionate about Bmx. Its just not only a sport for me its a lifestyle for me to living a good life & feel free. Bmx is super fun for me and the most creative sport. It’s an art for me. Bmx plays the main role on my life. Without riding Bmx life is just wasted for me. I ride Bmx for myself. I have a dream to be a professional Bmx rider and want to travel the world with my bike. I want to ride with the riders all around the world. I watch Bmx videos all the time to keep myself motivated.
When I see others riders progressing & see Bmx riders are growing day by day here in India it also motivated me a lot for progressing in my riding. Am always motivated before going for the riding session. When I progress and learn a new trick, its just priceless. BMX makes me feel special. Its a stress buster. What I get in return from BMX riding? Happiness!
