The True Geordie Podcast welcomes the former BMX Dirt Rider 3 time World Champion, Stephen Murray.
Murray was a seven-time expert British champion and six-time UK National champion before the age of 16. During his professional BMX career, Murray was known for his double back flips, 360 back flips, and turndown back flips. He won the gold medal in BMX Dirt in the Summer 2001 X Games and won gold medals in BMX Dirt at the Gravity Games in back-to-back years (2001 and 2002). He was nominated for ESPN ‘BMX rider of the year’.
On Friday 22 June 2007, at the AST Dew Tour BMX Dirt Finals in Baltimore, Murray took a catastrophic fall attempting a double backflip on the final jump in the dirt section. He received career-ending injuries to his spinal cord and vertebrae and is paralyzed below the shoulders. Murray, has brought inspiration to many throughout the world with his ‘Stay Strong’ attitude in the face of adversity and is one of the kindest human beings you could ever wish to meet.
