Considering Nigel states that “BMX riders are going to rip this apart” in this video, I’m going to at least to attempt to talk you off the shit-talking ledge. The body issue is something that ESPN does to feature the “vessels” that make up your favorite sports. Football, soccer, tennis, car racing…every traditional sport you can think of has been featured. I’m sure Nigel thought about this feature well beforehand, obviously taking note of the average rider’s outrage, but the fact remains that things like this bring BMX up a notch alongside those other sports. And besides, Mat Hoffman was on the cover of ESPN Mag without his shirt on, too. Oh, that not enough? Let’s not forget Scotty Cranmer was naked in Rolling Stone… Aside from the video, you can read some words from Nigel right here and the magazine itself comes out July 11th….
