Special Order


Ride lays bare the harrowing beginnings and the tough life lessons learned by superstar John Buultjens on his rise to BMX glory. Raised by his poor family in Glasgow, he slept rough to escape his father's beatings. Placed in a children's home, he adopted by a bi-racial couple. After conquering his own racism, his life turned around, and the movie E.T. inspired a love of BMX. John's emigration to Australia saw him becoming one of BMX's biggest names. Then came the call from California to lead the most famous BMX brand, Haro. Now their global brand manager, he backs and sponsors riders across the globe. Hollywood has turned his unbelievable journey into a movie. Here, John reveals inner secrets including murders, hatred, sexual abuse—and how his white-knuckle ride has taken him to the top against all the odds.
