BMX Photo Feature: Kurt Perkins
Bike / BMX
I think most “senior” riders like me can agree that calling out tricks to the younger guys then seeing them executed exactly as your imagination sees it is fun. Kurt Perkins is easily one of my favorites—the best riders are the ones who make everything look easy and casual. I was texting with Kurt the day of this photo and suggested he do this trick. He’d never done it on a hip. Within five minutes, he was laying these down, at height, like he’d been doing them for years. It’s a difficult enough trick to do on a straight jump, but to do it “topside” on a hip is a wholly different level of difficulty.
