Ben Snowden’s Ultimate Move: The BMX Manual

October 29, 2010

Pro BMX freestyle rider Ben Snowden frequently rips Vert and Park competitions with 540s, tailwhips and flips. His arsenal of awesome big air tricks makes him a contender at every event in which he participates—worldwide. But according to the 28-year-old stunter, none of the tricks would be possible without his having first built a BMX balance foundation with a Manual.

Ben used this ultimate starting move as the groundwork for his more advanced crowd-pleasing capers. Check out the latest installment of the Ultimate Moves video series, and watch Ben offer step-by-step instruction on how to get started with a BMX Manual.
