On June 24th, we're stoked to welcome BMX legend Stephen Murray to celebrate the launch of his harrowing autobiography 'Staying Strong'. Professional BMX athlete Stephen Murray moved to California to pursue and live the action sports dream. The mind-set and focus he showcased in his racing days are what helped him to the top in 2001 when he won Gold at both X and Gravity Games, pulling backflips and 360 flip variations. His do or die go big approach is what set him apart from other athletes and made him a globally recognised BMX hero. In 2007, whilst competing at the 2007 Dew Tour in Baltimore, Stephen suffered a life-changing accident that left him paralysed from the neck down and confined to a wheel chair. Stephen's forthcoming autobiography 'Staying Strong' details this journey, from his rise to fame to staying positive in the face of diversity and the power of remaining mentally strong in the ultimate hope he may walk again. To celebrate the launch of Stephen's autobiography, a full programme of events will take place on Saturday 24th of June.Our underground cinema will host a Q&A with Stephen from 15:00, accompanied by screenings of a selection of Stay Strong's inspirational videos and some of his legendary riding footage. Our skatepark will share the action with Demos featuring the Stay Strong BMX Team plus a bunch of Vans Euro riders Bass Keep, Matt Priest, Bob Manchester, Anthony Watkinson, Lima Eltham and Joe Baddely. Lastly, our Tunnel 3 will be buzzing with street market stalls giving you the chance to purchase the book, memorabilia and more.
