Watch: Josh Betley – Thank you BMX

Josh Betley is one of the nicest dudes on the riding scene, and for a decade was a pro rider and team manager and product designer for Felt bikes, riding for the likes of Osiris shoes (signature colourway) and also And Forks, knocking out some super creative street lines on spots that just don’t look like spots. In that respect, Josh was a little ahead of his time, if anything – but life changes (see below) and this is Josh’s last BMX video piece. Find Josh on Instagram to watch his comedy videos… Enjoy!

“Hello everybody! My name is Josh Betley and I was a professional bike rider for 10 years. It was the best time of life. Due to the economy, my long-time sponsors Felt bikes and Osiris shoes had to end our relationship. I kept riding every day for 2 more years (2013-2015), and this video was filmed in that time frame. Unfortunately, I developed an ailment called APMPPE, which has since severally damaged my vision. So, it breaks my heart to say this, but this is unfortunately my last BMX video. I want to send a special thanks to Greg Molitorno for filming this. Also, I want to thank all the amazing people I’ve met along the way. BMX truly has the best people on earth involved. I love you all.” – Josh Betley
