Terry Adams: Photos and Interview: Ridin' Around Los Angeles

In a specialized discipline of BMX that is often overlooked by most media outlets, Terry Adams is the pre-eminent BMX Flatland leader during an era where ramps, jumps, and grindrails are dominating the BMX landscape. Flatland BMX is a freestyle BMX riding style that's all performed on a flat surface, and Terry is the best at it.

We recently caught up with the Louisiana native during his stop in L.A. and talked about his favorite tricks, the L.A. weather, and his choice of bikes. All photos by Marv Watson.
