BMX Legend Anthony Sewell

sewell

I just found out that Anthony Sewell passed away in his sleep yesterday. Anthony was a hero to the BMX community in the 80’s racing for companies such as Murray and Kuwahara. He was the first rider to win three #1 titles in the same year as well as being one of the first riders doing true no handers.

Our best wishes go out to the Sewell family. Ride in peace, Anthony.

    Friends,

    Anthony was a friend to all and gentleman at all times. Fast as lightning and even quicker with a smile. That’s how I remember him.

    That and the painting of him and Richie Zagars on the side of the Jag motorhome.

  4. Thanks for writing in Guys. Anthony was a hero to kids and pros alike.
