Dave Nourie Spotlight

BMX Freestyle is going to be in the 2020 Olympics. Let that sink in. Right now at this moment in time, you're witnessing your passion being elevated to - I mean --- the discus, man. The discus is epic. BMX Freestyle is on the level of the discus. If you ever wondered what it was like to be one of the first dudes to throw a stone frisbee back in the day, then you might also wonder what it was like to be one of the dudes to do a Miami Hopper back in the day. Oh - and that guy (Dave Nourie) is interviewed by one of the guys who basically invented 'Zines.  So like - enjoy your roots, bro.  Please enjoy.

Class Guidance

Pro:

You have many years of commitment to your craft. You know that without impossible resistance and obstacles, athletic excellence will not manifest. You remain committed to the path of athletic exceptionalism. You have a strong, well-reasoned point-of-view on your riding direction. You realize that you are The Vanguard of flatland and are committed to forging the path for others. You are highly supportive of all classes because you recognize the enjoyment they gain and the commitment they bring.

Expert:

You are committed to the athlete's life. You are committed to the progressive attitude and are honest with yourself about the next challenge to master. You consider feedback to be the life-blood of your progression. You make adjustments each time things don't go the way you want. You realize this is the rigor that's needed to advance your craft.

Old's Cool:

You have ridden for a lot of years. You have tricks, but you don't spend as much focused time as you'd like. You enjoy the ride, but are not currently committed to the path of the Elite Athlete.

Novice:

This is the first class you enter as you begin your journey. If you ride other disciplines, you can start here.

 

Our Position on Competitive Class:

Every rider in every class is there on a self-selected basis. The AFA does not recognize assertions of "class belonging" from people other than the riders themselves. An athlete's journey is her or his alone. It is an extraordinary personal struggle that leads to unimaginable growth. It is riddled with pain, frustration, and sobering choices. External input regarding an athlete's choice of class is not taken into consideration. The AFA supports the commitment, dream, and vision of athletes at all stages of their journey.
