Troy McMurray had a massive influence on my riding and he is still a total badass. Back in the 90s he was a man about things and he went big and got creative, there isn't a girls pants wearing, curb nibbling, metrosexual bone in his body. Troy embodies manly BMX burliness on street dirt parks and everything else. I used to have this page of American Ride on my wall when I still lived at my mothers house, I took it with me to many buff house walls, many flats on tyneside and blu tacked it to many kitchen walls all over the northeast much to many a girlfriends disapproval. I absolutely love this photo and to this day I still can't bare to throw it away even in its dogeared and faded state. The caption reads 'does this look like a calvin klien sponsored rider? Troy McMurray, barspin out of a fakie wall ride'. Troy's in a spot of bother medically with some problems with blood clots, if you can, donate some cash here. It all helps. Get well soon brother.
