Though it is very Condor-like, do not be deceived. This is a photo of Mat flying through the air, about to land feet first on the DECK of the mega quarter at X Games from 10+ feet in the air. Of course, he got up right after and the crowd went wild. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Condor!
Mat Hoffman is one of the world's most influential BMX riders. He was the first one to do the 900 and in 2002, the no handed 900. Even at an older age, he has been ripping it up and killing the vert ramp (his specialty) without brakes. He owns his own bike company appropriately named Hoffman Bikes. Long time friend and super good BMX rider, Kevin Robinson, rides for Hoffman Bikes. He was also the first BMX rider to have a video game, some time in the 90's I believe. That game was f*ck*ng awesome...
There isn't enough to say about this guy... his list of achievements is too long, but to note a few he completed the highest air on a BMX bicycle by going STRAIGHT AT IT (it being a massive quarter pipe). His nickname, Condor, comes from his tuck no hander that is more extended and significant than any other rider's tuck no hander.
BMX legend. Number one.
