The first Mat Hoffman appearance on the freestyle BMX circuit was as an amateur at the age of 13. He turned pro at age 16, making him the youngest pro rider.
Hoffman’s career is brimming with fantastic achievements and stunts. He once took his bike base-jumping off 3,500-foot Norwegian cliffs. In 2002, he set the record for the highest assisted “air” on a bike, a feat which was eventually included in the 2004 Guinness Book of World Records. The record remained unbeaten for several years until Kevin Robinson, under Hoffman’s assistance, broke it.
Hoffman Promotions became even more successful through the years, which led to the establishment of Hoffman Sports Association. HSA is the leader of Freestyle BMX events worldwide, including ESPN’s X Games.
In 2001, Hoffman won the bronze at the X Games. The following year, he amazed the BMX world by setting another record of completing the first-ever no-handed 900 at the X Games. He won second place in the process.
In 2005, Hoffman became the President of the International BMX Freestyle Federation, the organization that governs BMX Freestyle, which also holds partnership with Union Cyclists International, the bicycle governing body for the International Olympic Committee.
