Titled Chosen - A Chronicle of the Black BMX Experience
After years of providing the world with free BMX race videos online, filmmaker George Vick will soon take viewers on a journey into the cycling world that is widely unknown. Chosen - A Chronicle of the Black BMX Experience is a full length feature documentary film that follows the history of black BMX athletes and industry insiders from the 1970's to the Olympic dreams of several modern day racers including the reigning 5 time Elite Women national champion Dominique Daniels and Redline Bicycle's Denzel Stein, who is currently ranked 3rd in the nation for Elite Men.
"Every time I would tell someone who was outside of the industry about BMX racing, they didn't think that any black people were involved in the sport," said Vick. "They were oblivious to the rich history that we have in BMX. I ultimately want to send the film to community centers throughout the country to show black youth that there are other athletic avenues that they can focus on besides ball sports."
