ROB NOLLI DESERVES TO BE IN THE BMX HOF!

Master Blaster Planet team rider Rob Nolli isn’t in the BMX HOF yet but he should be! Rob is without question one of the best all around BMX riders of all time! He’s won park, dirt, and flatland contests, made the cut in BMX vert numerous times, and could hold his own on street too.

Rob was a 3 x Florida state champion in BMX flatland before he found his true love for riding ramps and anything with a transition. Rob became a progressive rider in the mid 90s park scene entering Hoffman BS Series comps around the US. He was one of the first riders to combine tricks like 720s over the box and flairs on quarter pipes mixed with tech moves on gnarly sub boxes like nosepick to bar spins and downside double peg grinds all with consistency which was a rarity back then. In the 2000s Rob competed in numerous X Games, Gravity Games, Dew Tours, ASA comps, and other events, resulting in top 5 finishes and many times taking home the win. Rob’s biggest contest accomplishment was a bronze medal at the X Games for BMX Park.

In addition to competing Rob has performed thousands of shows in his career. For many years he rode for GT Bicycles on their summer tours and performed for NBA and NFL halftime shows. During this time he established himself as one of the best show riders to ever do it. It’s common to see Rob throw down flatland, lip tricks, 6’ tailwhips on the 1/4 pipe, and no handed back flips all in the same show. He continues to put on shows, now for his own company Rob Nolli’s BMX Trickstars, bringing his skill and passion for BMX to schools, fairs, and special events.

Rob has enjoyed performing for crowds and inspiring kids from the US and around the world for over 25 years. Hopefully Rob will someday soon get the credit he deserves and a place in the BMX HOF. Until then he’ll keep riding and pushing the limits! Make sure you check out his Facebook page and follow his team to find out if they might be coming to a town near you!

MBP TEAM RIDER MARCOS DeJESUS THROWBACK VIDEO BRINGS THE FIRE!

Master Blaster Planet team rider Marcos DeJesus is one of the most incredible flatland riders to ever exist. It’s no wonder he won the Latin X Games gold medal. Marcos is always pushing not only his own limits but the boundaries of reality. Sit back and check out one of the best to ever do it in this video section we made back in 2008. The last trick is a serious banger: backyard/whopper/to hitchhiker which Marcos is still the only rider to pull that trick off. Definitely one of the most difficult tricks ever done on a BMX bike!
