"What I do to eliminate fear is breakdown the tricks.”

Cherechukwu Udenkwere is 22 years old and hails from Nigeria. He excels in the BMX flat discipline. Hailed by Matthias Dandois himself, the undisputed king of the discipline, Che won the 2021 King of Wheels award. On flat ground, as the name suggests, the "rider" performs BMX tricks in three minutes to win a maximum of points from the judges, using the same system as in figure skating, for example. BMX flat will only be a demonstration event at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Only BMX racing and BMX free style have been selected. Che is pursuing his dream of becoming a professional.
