Q&A WITH Isaac


Tell me about yourself. Who are you? How old are you? What bikes do you currently ride? When did you start doing Big BMX? Etc.

I’m Isaac Irvine, and I’m part of the SuperCross BMX big bike retro team. I started riding BMX bikes in the early 1980s and transitioned into Flatland Freestyle riding for MCS and Jive Handles. I found BMX again in 2019 when I found the 26” and 29” BMX frames that fit my dad knees better than a 20”.



What are some of your biggest achievements within the sport?

That’s a tricky question! I’d say it’s a mix of starting a Big BMX podcast in 2020 and helping retro-riders like myself find their home back in the BMX world. It shows dads that they don’t need to ride a MTB when they can shred around the neighborhood and the track on adult-sized BMX bikes with their kids.


What’s your current local track?

I spend my track time at Chandler BMX here in Arizona. My kids and I like to spend time out there on practice nights just enjoying the BMX family here in Arizona.


What’s your favorite thing about Big BMX and Why?

Big BMX bikes have allowed me to get back into a sport I LOVED as a kid and pick up where I left off. I remember riding my bike to the store as a kid to pick up the new BMX Action magazine and hang out with my friends in the parking lot. I get to do that now with a bunch of friends at rideouts. We meet at local bike shops, ride around town as a big group of a few hundred people, and experience the city in a whole new way. Big BMX allows me to relax and manage the stresses of life in a way that’s worked since I was a kid.


What are your hobbies outside of Big BMX?

I’ve always enjoyed art and being creative. I spend a lot of time editing videos and learning as much as possible about how we communicate as humans.


What are some of your goals for your career?

I don’t care about achievements as much at my age. The older I get, the more I understand that the most valuable things I have are the memories I’ve made. My biggest goal is to help other parents find the joy of riding rad BMX bikes with their families.


What is your favorite dessert?

Any and everything that tastes like coffee.


Who is your favorite BMX Rider?

I have way too many to list. If you woke up and chose to ride your bike today... You’re my favorite rider in the world. Have fun, and leave a legacy of love and respect for the BMX world’s past and future.
