Chosen - A Chronicle of the Black BMX Experience, is a full length feature documentary film that follows the history of black bmx athletes, manufactuers and industry insiders from the 1970's until present day. Although only amassing a small percentage of the racers around the globe, they have found great success in this niche cycling discipline.
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."
Although BMX racing is seen as a small niche sport by major media outlets, it has risen to international notoriety and legitimacy with its inclusion in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China and the upcoming 2012 Olympics Games in London, England. It is estimated that BMX racing reaches a global audience of over 4 million people through current television programming.
