Flatland BMX Pro
About Terry Adams
Terry Adams is a pioneer in flatland BMX.
Growing up in Hammond, LA, a small town about an hour outside of New Orleans, Terry discovered flatland BMX when he was 12. Severe asthma and dyslexia made homeschooling a necessity, but that didn't affect his riding aspirations. "I wouldn't say that those things were obstacles," he says. "If you want something bad enough, you can do whatever you want in this world. You just need to believe."
Terry began competing in flatland BMX contests at 16, and since then has amassed an impressive number of awards and accolades, including an X Games gold medal and winning the Number One Rider award in 2005 and 2008. For a number of years, Terry wasn't prioritizing his health, so his performance took a hit.
In 2020, Terry began putting his sleep first, and came back to win the Rider of the Year award. These days, in between competing and continuing to pioneer his discipline, Terry is widely regarded as the ambassador for flatland BMX, taking part in demos and competitions all over the world.
