About Ryan

With 16 XG medals, 36 XG competition starts and 60 Dew Tour finals appearances (most all-time), Nyquist is simply one of the greatest and diversely skilled BMX riders ever. He hasn't won XG gold since doubling up in Park and Dirt in 2003, but the 37-year-old remains relevant on the contest scene. He's also recently started competing in mountain bike slopestyle. In October 2014 he won Red Bull's Dreamline dirt event and took second at both Dew Tour Portland (dirt) and Ocean City (bowl). A master of backflip variations, double barspins and truck drivers, expect Nyquist to combine classic style and tricks with modern bangers. Ryan had his third child—a boy named Finn—on August 25, 2015.
