Nicknamed “The Godfather of freestyle”, Bob is a former freestyle BMX rider and one of the most important innovators of BMX freestyle. In 1978, Haro teamed up with R.L.Osborne to form the very first freestyle BMX team and in 1981 Haro designed the first frame and fork tailored for freestyle BMX. The bike became commercially available in 1982 and was marketed as the Haro freestyler. Today the Haro bike is one of the most used for freestyle BMX.

Bob is an Ambassador and keen supporter of Access Sport’s BMX Legacy Programme and has previously visited Hackney BMX Club.
