BMX tricks can be performed on any type of terrain, but are most commonly done on dirt jumps, quarter pipes, and ramps. In BMX Freestyle, riders perform routines consisting of sequences of tricks carried out on flat ground, in the streets, on dirt jumps, a halfpipe and/or on constructed ramps. In competition, riders are judged on the quality of their performance. BMX Freestyle competition appeared in its first Olympic Games in 2021 in Tokyo.BMX biker driving over faculty
