In conversation with The Dingo and Danny, the Olympic gold medalist, shares the background story behind his accomplished career, all the way to his traumatic injury and recent retirement.Connor Fields started racing BMX at the young age of seven and evolved into one of the most decorated racers on the circuit. Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, he built a track record including three USABMX National Age Group Championship titles – before he was even 18 years old! Blessed with unique race IQ only surpassed by his strong work ethic, Fields rose to become a two-time USA BMX #1 Pro and two-time UCI BMX World Cup Series Champion. After landing a spot on Team USA, he made history as the first American athlete to win a BMX gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games.
