Alistair Whitton is a stuntman that flourishes on a BMX bike. For years he has helped to progress the sport, and at one time or another, has been on the cover of every major BMX magazine. Despite his BMX celebrity, he remains one of the most accessible riders in the sport. He still spends a tremendous amount of time at Woodward Camp and still maintains his sense of excitement and adventure.
Family life has taken precedence in Alistair’s existence and he fathers with the same approach to the rest of his life: full commitment. His signature colorways and unmistakable downside 360 whips will forever be in Pennsylvania if you need and a smile.
