About Dennis

At 49, McCoy is a BMX institution and will be the oldest athlete competing at X Games Austin 2016. He will make his 23rd XG appearance and has never missed an XG BMX Vert event. In 2014, when he landed a 900 and took bronze in BMX Vert (his 6th medal), McCoy set an XG record for longest gap between medals: 16 years. He still throws 900s on a regular basis, as well as several 540 variations, including the barspin-to-barspin-back. Celebrating his 30th anniversary of turning pro, Haro released a throwback tribute 1986 DMC Master bike earlier this year and Vans re-issued a limited edition run of shoes in honor of McCoy.
