THE GODFATHER OF BICYCLE MOTOCROSS
On a sunny autumn day in 1970, in a vacant lot in Long Beach, California, a young Scot Breithaupt organized the first-ever BMX race. At just 14 years old, he went on to create the Bicycle United Motocross Society (B.U.M.S.) and soon produced the first
California State Championships in 1972.
From designing BMX tracks and promoting races to establishing BMX publications and managing race teams, Scot played an integral role in growing the sport.
