Today's guest is one of the most influential BMX riders of all time. He and his riding have helped shape BMX into what it is today through some of the most well known and respected video parts of all time. His well rounded style and dedication to sending some of the gnarliest tricks ever done has earned him the title of a legend in the industry. I'm so excited to be speaking with the one and only Van Homan.
