Darcy Peters

Riding with a highly technical and always aggressive style, Darcy Peters (DP as he’s often referred to) has a long career ahead of him yet.

It’s clear that Peters has been riding his BMX for over half his young life, as his confidence and comfort on the bike shows through in his photos and videos. He never expected anything from BMXing, he just wanted to ride, but that carefree attitude is exactly what’s made him successful. Whether he’s alone tiny park in Alberta, or amongst a crowd of top riders at a national contest, DP is guaranteed to your attention with his skills.
