Taj Mihelich Retrospective

From his humble beginnings in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to his current legendary status, Taj Mihelich has become a name that is etched in the minds of almost anyone who rides BMX. An attempt at reducing the time Taj has spent on a bike to a brief tick list would be a horrible disservice, but for the sake of our readers, a few ways Taj has left his mark on BMX include: second place in dirt at the first Extreme games in 1995, a signature frame while riding for Hoffman Bikes, an esteemed member of the first Props Road Fools video, designer of several pro model shoes with Etnies, co-founder of Terrible One, pro rider for Giant, and now a position at Odyssey. What follows is a loose collection of highlights from Taj's career. (Photos by: Sandy Carson)
