A household name in both BMX dirt and park, Ryan Nyquist started riding at the age of three and competed in his first BMX freestyle competition when he was 16. Competing in his first X Games at the age of 18, Nyquist has been a BMX legend ever since. By 2003, he had won every major dirt competition – X Games, Gravity Games, Vans Triple Crown, and the King of Dirt.
A staple on the competition circuit for more than a decade, Nyquist’s consistency has put him in the top five in the Dew Tour’s year-end rankings in both disciplines every year. The winner of 13 total X Games medals in both park and dirt – including an X Games record of nine medals in dirt – Nyquist’s accomplishments earned him an ESPY for Best Action Sports Athlete as well as the title of BMX Plus! Dirt Jumper of the Year in 2004 and Teen Choice Award nomination for Male Action Sports Star.
Nyquist has continued to impress in both park and dirt adding to his growing collection of Dew Cup wins. There's no telling when this superstar will stop and when--or if--he will ever be beaten!
