Which 3 sponsored riders would you pick to ride with?

If you won some kind of contest and you could go back in time and invite 3 of your favorite Pro's to ride with you for a day..... Which ones would you pick?

3 from any era.... or even today  smile

Re: Which 3 sponsored riders would you pick to ride with?

I would pick Ron Wilkerson, Dave Voelker and R.L Osborn.

Im talking late 80's.... These three seemed to always go all out and thrash as hard as they could.  I would have loved to see them ride my spots and kill it.  Visions of anarchy through my hometown blasting off all the street obstacles and our local ditches......

Hard to pick 3 but Voelker and BF for sure.  Fuzzy and Joe Rich are up there too.

Darryl Nau isn't technically sponsored but he seems like a really fun dude to ride with cool

For sure it would be Mat Hoffman and Jay Miron,as for the third....don't know yet,but I'm leaning towards anyone of the OG Dirt Bros crew.

Nice!  Yup, Mat is up there for me too.  And I could list 3 flatland guys too in a snap.

Matt, Jay and Dennis in or around 1990 when they all kinda rode everything, BMX wasn't exactly huge and just getting to ride with other people was awesome.

yea, my mistake.  I kinda goofed on the time travel thing, since it would be hard to ride with current riders and 80's riders on the same day.

Hoffman and Blyther (we'd have a ramp session,) and then Adam Blanton & I would hit up a park.

Too fast though! I wouldn't be hanging with them for long. Maybe Judge if he was busting out flat tables on every jump big_smile
