BLOOD SWEAT AND BMX BIKES
In the tradition of alternative sport documentaries like “Dogtown and Z Boys”, Joe Kid on a Sting-ray” gives the viewer a short but detailed history of old school bicycle motocross with some grainy 8mm archival footage of rascally kids from the early 70’s, and follows its two wheeled trajectory right into the modern world of bmx freestyle.
Those shots of Scotts Breithaupt’s rowdy and lawless cross-country bike motocross tour from the mid 1970’s will make you miss those sun drenched days on your old bmx bike.
like any good alternative sport documentary “JoeKid on a Stingray” ends with the modern ‘X Games’, where the pioneering skills of Matt Hoffman, Dennis McCoy, Stu Thompson and many more, can be seen in the radicalness of modern riders. This is one tricked out documentary.
