“Nigel Sylvester has become the face of professional BMX riding. His dedication and love for the action sport has lead the 27-year-old to travel the entire world and have some of the biggest brands behind him.
His love for bikes began at an early age and continued throughout his teens eventually landing Nigel his first major BMX deal with his childhood hero Dave Mirra at the young age of 18. As Nigel’s name became more visible in the BMX scene, brands like Nike and Gatorade began to offer the Queens native sponsorship deals for his skills on the bike. Several sponsorships later and trips around the globe, Nigel has successfully become a role model to the younger generation that shares the same love for BMX.
We recently caught up with Nigel Sylvester during one of his stops in New York City to discuss his career, sponsorship deals, friendships with celebrities and much more.” – Roger Krastz

“Just when you thought you’ve ever seen everything, you come across “Live In The Streets,” a creative series where Mr. Green creates a beat from street sounds. Not only that, but he got A$AP Ferg to rap on it and sampled Nigel Sylvester riding a bike and added it to his production that came out fire. At first, you see how he took his sample from a Chinese instrument, then you can see Green in the studio cooking up the beat, then he met with Fergenstein to talk about the BMX culture in Harlem, right before meeting with the most famous BMX’er in New York City.
This series looks to be a must watch moving forward. Mr. Green killed it.” Via FREEONSMASH
