Animal Bikes owner Ralph Sinisi made the cut.

Earlier today, ESPN Action Sports and XGames.com debuted a new photo gallery that showcases the top fifty influencers in action sports. The assortment of influencers includes not just athletes, but various behind the scene names that have pushed the boundaries of technology, the direction of the sports and more (we included the co-creators of YouTube, simply for the way in which online video changed the way we witness action sports). We've also included a few BMX names that are currently influencing the direction of BMX, including Ralph Sinisi (pictured above), Edwin De La Rosa, Joe "Butcher" Kowalski, Tom Dugan and Matthias Dandois.

Check the gallery above, leave comments below and let us know what you think.
