Joe kid on a Sting-Ray ‐ The History of BMX BMX is an acronym for Bicycle Motocross. This film documents the evolution of a sport created by kids who [in the 1970's] began modifying their Schwinn Sting- Ray bicycles to look like motorcycles. This documentary is the first film to take a serious look at the history and evolution of BMX bicycle riding, from the streets of 1960s suburban neighborhoods to today's stadium‐packed televised Dirt, Street & Halfpipe insanity.

The directors have assembled a 30yr timeline packed with rare archival footage and interesting interviews to create a film which explores the history, trends, stars, and current direction of BMX stunt riding and racing. Joe Kid on a Sting-Ray delivers a historical perspective to the sport of BMX, but brings it to you in such a way that makes you feel like you were there.
