Hi, my name is Terry Adams. My discipline is BMX Flatland. I was born on 9 August 1983 in Hammond, Louisiana, USA. My special talent is innovative tricks. My philosophy of life is stay positive and the possibilities are endless. The most important person in my life is my wife, Vanessa. My favourite food is pizza, and frozen yoghurt. My favourite music is Lil Wayne.


Terry Adams could rest on the countless contest wins he's earned around the world, but he chooses instead to take every opportunity to promote the sport he is so passionate about. "Flatland is my heart and soul," he says. "I will do everything I can to help it grow."

Growing up in Hammond, Louisiana, a small town about an hour outside of New Orleans, Terry discovered BMX Flatland when he was 12. Severe asthma and dyslexia made homeschooling a necessity, but that didn't affect his riding aspirations. "I wouldn't say that those things were obstacles," he says. "If you want something bad enough, you can do whatever you want in this world. You just need to believe."

Terry began competing in flatland contests at 16, and since then has amassed an impressive number of awards and accolades, including an X Games gold medal and two NORA Cup wins. These days, in between competing and continuing to pioneer his discipline, Terry is now widely regarded as the ambassador for flatland, taking part in demos all over the world.
