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.
Sheep Hills, located in Southern California, has history. Maintained for decades by the riders and for the riders, it’s served as a training ground and testing ground and proving ground for legions of riders, from newbies to seasoned locals to the traveling pro. Mike “Hucker” Clark is a regular at Sheep Hills, riding there whenever his busy travel schedule doesn’t have him competing somewhere else in the world. When he’s in town, he’s regularly helping maintain the trails, working on his riding and always offering advice and positive vibes to anyone and everyone around him.
