The Terrible Ten Tradition - Generation XII

Filed under General on April 24, 2019 | Comment(s)

Since 1983, being named as a member of The Terrible-10 for a particular year has been one of the highest honors in the sport. 
Traditionally, Terrible Ten’ers have gone on to Pro super-stardom and many of the originals are now in the BMX Hall of Fame. It’s been six years since the last Terrible Ten was published in PULL magazine, and we congratulate those who made the cut. Narrowing the list to the Top-10 is always a hard task.
For this twelfth edition of the Terrible Ten, we’ve decided to break it down into three groups - Girls, Boys and for the first time ever - the mighty midgets of BMX; the Terrible 10 & Unders.
As with all past TT lists, we know that not everybody will agree with our final choices - so feel free to debate about it on social media. For our criteria, we first imagine a 50-person wide starting gate - and attempt to guess who the first ten riders would be to the first turn. After that has been debated, we then look at NAG rankings, wins and National and World Championship titles. Then, finally, we throw ten darts at the list and see where they land - predicting that these Top-10 will someday go on to become some of the Greatest Pro racers in our Sport.
Note: As it was written back in 1986, “For those who think they belong on this list and didn’t make it - PROVE IT.”
