It’s pretty amazing seeing how BMX riders are getting things done in different countries. We don’t see a ton of footage coming out of India, but there’s definitely riders over there putting in work and making things happen so they can enjoy riding. Here’s a real cool video we stumbled on featuring Annul Pale who throws down some real dialed flatland and street riding despite it being something his parents weren’t supportive of and it not being a common thing in India. Hit play as he tells his story and you get a look at his riding!
“A PIZZA delivery boy who was thrown out onto the streets by his father has become one of India's best known BMX champions. Growing up in the slums of Mumbai, India, 26-year-old Annul Pale had a passion for cycling from his early days and developed an interest in BMX after watching the stunts on a sports channel. After experimenting with skateboarding and b-boying, Anul got into BMX stunt riding in 2005 and has since won numerous championships and even appeared in a movie.
