Mike Day is a professional BMX RACER. So if you're looking for backflips you're in the wrong place. Nonetheless, this guy is awesome. If you are into BMX such as freestyle you should still be stoked on Mike Day because he is one of America's best BMX racers competing in the Olympics and other international races.
He took second place in the 2008 Olympics behind the unbeatable Latvian Maris Stromberg.
Mike Day is even MORE awesome because he believes if he was not a professional racer he probably would have looked into a career of architecture and interior design and modern home design, stuff like that. He is also a dog lover.
If you are an American don't forget to root for him in the International BMX races also because he is a great rider and we Americans should all be proud to have him represent us in this unique Olympic sport.
