Eyes on Austin: A Unique BMX Riding Tour With Chase Hawk


The eyes of the BMX and greater action sports community are about to turn toward Austin, Texas. After nearly a decade of calling Los Angeles its home, Summer X Games opted for a makeover. In a town best known for SXSW and Longhorn football, action sports will aim to make itself known.

Beneath the surface, however, action sports is very much alive and well in Austin. Chase Hawk, one of the most stylish BMX riders in the game today, was born and raised there. He’s traveled the world and had chances to leave, but he’s always chosen to keep the chic, un-Texan town as his home base. Why? Because as a BMX rider, it has everything one could ask for.

Don’t believe us? We challenge you to check out this unique riding tour of Chase’s hometown and tell us Austin, Texas isn’t a BMX haven.
