This compilation of images captured during the Crucial BMX event highlight the truly vibrant energy  throughout the day that radiated from riders, performers and those just there to see what Crucial  BMX stands for. The sense of community between all the ages there was clear to see, which created the atmosphere of a great safe space for youth to be together.

There was so much incredible talent, including BMX legends like Tom Justice, Freya O’Connor Lomax, Billy MK and all those involved in Mafia Bikes. You can see the involvement of those in the crowd, prizes being thrown, the bikes on offer, and the final ride out at the end.
