There isn’t anyone much more talked about in BMX than Nigel Sylvester. Whether you love him or hate him, he’s one of the most visible figures in BMX and that has brought with it plenty of hate. I was excited to have Nigel on the show to respond to the criticisms of him and his movement that have been popping up over the last few years.

Thanks a ton to Catfish and John Hicks for co-hosting with me and Sussell for filming
