Is this the most creative bike rider on Earth? Tate Roskelley might just be a genius.
Forgive the Upworthy-esque YouTube friendly title (no seriously I’m pretty embarrassed but I want to give this a decent chance of doing Tim Knoll numbers) and witness Tate Roskelley. Tate’s got just about the most original perspective on BMX you can imagine. I think years ago when Jim C said “I just want to see what’s possible”, Tate took his words at face value. His riding is less about making a statement and more about asking questions. What is a bike trick? What is a street spot? The answers aren’t always pretty (I’m sure he isn’t going to start riding around with his stem bolts loose full time) but they’re always interesting and Tate is always having fun.
Thanks so much to Elf for filming this, you are a god amongst men.
