We caught up with veteran freestyle BMX rider, Nina Buitrago the other week at The Source Park in Hastings, to talk riding, contests and style.
Nina has been traveling and riding around the world for the last eighteen years and is the main inspiration for many new female riders, heading up the women’s scene over the last decade.
As well as riding at the X Games and many other comps each and every year, she also set up her own girls jam back in the US and created a zine, which she distributes at events and contests all over the world.
We hung out with Nina for a day recently, as she came to the UK to compete in The Source’s first ever girls jam, alongside other legends such as Angie Marino, Charlotte Worthington and Perris Benegas. As well as talking BMX, we also took the chance to ask her about her favourite looks to rock and which brands she always likes to ride in. Here are Nina’s favourite pieces, and where to find them for yourself…
