Nigel Sylvester—you might think he’s Australian, but you’d be assuming incorrectly. Sponsored by Gatorade, Nike 6.0 and G-Shock, this BMX-pro is actually from New York, where he runs a bike, skate and streetwear shop called Format NY. Recently, he rode his bike around his home-base, showing off all his tricks in this dramatic new mini-film for Gatorade.
Because we’re naturally nosy, we caught up with Nigel to pick his brain and try and convince him to hang out with us later.
