I'm looking for some pros and cons.

There's pros in all corners of the world.

Is BMX a sport?

Personally, I think it should. However, I just don't know how they would pick the riders from each country. There's also a lot of rules and guidelines.

So... what do you think?

i think if it was us who ride bmx would be l;ooked upon differently, around where i am people think its childish to ride a bmx bike haha. and its definitely a sport so i dont see why it shouldnt be

Sure. Essentially BMX is similar to gymnastics, you have to use every part of your course, you have to put a routine together to impress, and execute your moves perfectly.

It is absolutely a sport.

yes it should a mean look at equestrian its fucking riding a horse. Bmx is highly physical and skill-full its also a crowd pleaser as the racing last year was well accepted.It would also release this bloody stigma surrounding us in which we all steal,drink and do drugs.why not have it.

i feel like there would have been a decent amount of park/dirt riders that would.. and if it was in the olympics it would be park or dirt since u have to know bmx to be impressed by street stuff i feel...but really there are only
big riders in australia, us, gbr, and germany has a few... so i dont think it would work......

There talking about freestyle not racing and I think it would be cool to see it in the Olympics but I have a feeling that it would kinda ruin bmx and make people ride just to say I ride bmx and not because they like to and idk i guess what i mean is that it would make bmx a trendy sport that people do just to be cool.

No. I don't really think extreme sports have a place in the Summer Olympics. Traditionally the sports in the Olympics are minimalist sports that you don't need money to participate in, that way no country has an unfair advantage.

I think the X-games can handle the extreme sports just fine. Though I do think the X-games should bring back real park (wooden with big box jumps and such) and dirt riding. I've never liked Vert and big air is kind of a novelty imo. Street is okay to watch though they should use a much bigger street course.

If x is going to have concrete parks atleast build a full pipe...... I did like the wooden courses better......I don't wanna see moto whips in a park contest

the only thing is i could only see a few country s being able to participate such as US canada english countrys , but when was the last time you saw a pro bmxer from nigeria bmx is a thing that requires alot of maintenance and would be hard to find in some places , most events in the olypics are events with little needed stuff , swimming running

fuck no bmx shouldn't be in the olympics. keep the mainstream shit out of bmx. bmx is about hanging out with friends, riding, and filming. it's not about qualifying, getting pressurized by crowds, being judged, competing against your fellow riders, and trying to win gold.

We aren't elite athletes. We are a bunch of dudes having fun on little bikes. Sure we have comps but at the end of the day, if we had fun we are ok with it.

If it was an olympic sport than everyone that was in it would be getting drug tested tongue

Bmx is a freesport and has no place in the Olympics period. Racing yes but freestyle? Not a good idea. Av you seen how pathetic the xgames is? That would be nothing compared to what riding would be like in the olymipics, I mean fuck me imagine the judges. Fuck dat shit, its a Freesport not a competitive sport.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.
