“In the second instalment of Pat Fisher’s series Foundations of Style, it is argued that the BMX industry and the community at-large should embrace new styles of BMX in order for creativity to thrive.  This piece focuses on the intersection of competitons (and those orchestrating them) and creative bike riding.  According to the author, that relationship plays a strong role in the development of, and often stifling of, creativity in BMX.  This piece addresses various notable contentions such as the oft-lamented issue of how to organize and judge various riding styles in formal competition as well as what defines a discipline in BMX.  In addition, it integrates a historical perspective on why BMX competitions exist as they do today.”
