“Tucson, Ariz., according to Cult Supplier and G-Sport flow team rider Andy ‘Floyd’ Erickson, gets a bad rap as far as locations go. And Mike Hines of Clicked BMX agrees. ‘It’s the red-headed stepchild of Phoenix, but there’s plenty of kids out there shredding with good attitudes, having a good time riding bikes, and to me, that’s what BMX is all about’ says Mike.

Because we like to promote that aspect of BMX, and because Floyd is an honorary resident of Jersey City whenever he visits, Floyd was kind enough to put together the above 2011 scene report from his home in Tucson. The spots are sick, the riding is great and the Tucson scene is definitely on the rise.” -Brian Tunney, via ESPN
