Athlete Bio

Walker is probably more in love with BMX now than he's ever been, which is a big statement considering he's been riding for over 30 years. His current enjoyment is no doubt attributable to his riding philosophy, which is to ride exactly how he wants to without worrying what anyone else thinks. His personal mission on the vert ramp is to constantly discover new ways to ride it, exploring the possibilities with alley-oops and opposite airs, varying his pedal stance and altitude along the way. He still does multiple flair and 540 variations, but he's more focused on having a good time in every session than worrying about how the results settle out when the contest is over.

You Don't Say?

  • Despite turning pro twenty years ago and having had 14 X Games appearances, Walker has yet to take home any X Games hardware. However, Walker does not lack competition experience. He's a familiar face at the Dew Tour where he's rode yearly since 2006, though he's never placed better than fourth.
