We’re Bmx riders , we aren’t skate boarders , and we don’t have the numbers skate boarders do , bmx riders need to stop thinking they are skateboarders and start thinking they are bmx riders

its not a matter of what other pros say. BMX was on the chopping block and adding sub par athletes for the purpose of whats between their legs is not going to get the viewers xgames is looking for.

X-games just doesn’t want to splash the cash. They probably are crunching the numbers and factoring in that 97% of everyday bmx riders in the world are male.....so why would they want to make the efforts to have a full program for females?

Sure it might turn that 97% to 92% one day but bmx is a pretty hard sport - and I often half jokingly say: you have to be a rageoholic to get good. I follow Ellie Chew and Lara Lessman on Instagram and they are great role models for girls bmx- but bmx is a fringe sport really (as of today) and surely it isn’t Women’s World Cup soccer (or skateboarding).
.
Nevertheless- if you want me to sign an online petition to shame X-games into creating a medaling event for females ......I’d be happy to sign it.
