Angie Marino is part of the first wave of women to tackle BMX skatepark, trail and street riding. After exiting the race scene at a younger age, Marino took to skatepark riding and noticed the lack of support among women in the sport of BMX freestyle. "There wasn't a girls' website for BMX, so me and my friend started one, along with a print magazine to support the girls," says Marino, who has also lobbied for the addition of a women's BMX Park class at X Games. These days, Marino holds down a sponsorship with Fit Bike Co. and travels the world competing in international competitions. "The global scene is growing for sure," she adds.
