Life Photos from Beijing 2008

Usually newspaper and non BMX media photographers usually get it all wrong. No take offs to ground the viewer, off timing, etc.; the photos make BMX look even goofier than it already is. Not these photos from the LIFE archives though. Obviously they are less than perfect but there's something about the rider's back dropped by a lonely, smog-ridden BMX track that looks pretty sweet.
