As BMX evolved from the 1980’s into the 1990’s, a whole new generation of companies and riders rose to the forefront of the industry, forever changing its future.
Caught up in the fold was a young BMX racer from Louisville, Kentucky named James Menard LeVan. Along with his sister Susie, the pair traversed the ranks of the Midwest racing scene, supported my their Mom’s ragtag track-side business.
After getting bored with pedaling fast around a track, Jimmy transitioned into dirt jumping and street riding, and found himself caught up in the mix as outside corporate companies entered the industry in the mid-90’s.
Using skills learned from years on the racetrack, Jimmy soon found himself at the helm of a new form of street riding – jumping large gaps – which would ultimately elevate him to legend status within the expanding BMX scene.
With the “Midschool” era in full effect at the turn of the century, the industry was soon transformed as new rider-owned companies emerged, including Jimmy’s own brand Metal Bikes.
As the years went on, a string of bad injuries would plague Jimmy as his riding career began to slow down, until a fateful skateboard accident would forever change his world.
Go Fast Pull Up takes a look at Jimmy’s story while stepping through important moments in BMX’s colorful history along the way.
