History

European BMX Hall of Fame

"Winners come and go, legends stay for ever"

For a long time I had the idea of organizing a European BMX Hall of Fame to honor our past and present BMX racers, pioneers and others. An important motivation to start a European BMX Hall of Fame also was the fact that present and future riders should know more about the history of their sport and her legends.

A sport with no history is no sport!

In the year 2001 we did officially start with the organization of the "EUROPEAN BMX HALL of FAME".

HISTORY EUROPEAN BMX HALL OF FAME

For many years the ABA  (Amercian Bicycle Association, USA), now called USA BMX, has its own USA BMX HALL of FAME, at the moment located at the Chula Vista (San Diego) Olympic sportfacilities in California - USA. Here mainly American BMX pioneers, racers, manufacturers and organisers/promotors are inducted and presented. The USA BMX Hall of Fame has around 140 members at this moment (ending 2016). Seen below, the Hall of Fame awards wall and one outside USA HoF member, Mr. Gerrit Does (inducted in 1998).
