This week we’ve got one of the top 110 riders in the world with us right now, but don’t go sticking him in that box. This dude is talented on anything with 2 or 4 wheels and has an engine. Keeping it old school and preferring it to be a 2 stroke!

From Motocross to Supercross, Rally, Side by Sides, 110s, BMX or whatever he can get his hands on, Banks Hovey appears to be part of the next generation of riders hellbent on having fun above all else and it shows in every video I’ve watched.

I love watching his no stuffing around approach to rolling in and just hitting any jump put in front of him.

If you haven’t heard of him yet, well you must not have been listening to any of the last 12 months of podcasts, but he’s cut his teeth riding 110s on the big stage of X Games and ended up with the Silver Medal at this years event at Axell Hodges’ house, and only beaten to the top spot by Axell himself. But very quickly we’ve seen him riding some of the biggest events like Nitro Circus Live Tours and watching him smash the Next Gen ramp or Moon Booter. Ramps that aren’t to be sneezed at. And then you get an impression of how fast he’s coming along on his progress in FMX. But like I said, there’s no Box you can put Banks in, he’s just taking on everything and having fun along the way.
