Congratulations, Malcolm & Sue Jarvis! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame

Malcolm and Sue Jarvis are legends of our sport, and for good reason. It all started in 1978 when a friend mentioned this new thing called BMX in the states, within days Malcolm was on a plane to California and met with the Legendary Skip Hess, Scot Breithaupt and Bob Haro. Deals were done and one of the very first BMX tracks were built in Malcolm and Sue’s back garden for their 5 kids to ride on. By 1979 The Jarvis’s spent months posting BMX info to 400 media stations and the phone didn’t stop ringing. By 1980 Ammaco were bringing in 1000’s of Mongoose bikes, Sue Jarvis was managing and promoting the Mongoose Factory team.
Arguably the Mongoose Factory team can be called the greatest British BMX Team in history, with riders like, Andy Ruffell, Tim March, Craig Schofield, John and Steve Greaves, Wayne Llewellyn and dozens of other riders getting their first break on the team. British BMX thanks you Malcolm & Sue Jarvis and we are proud to welcome you to the British BMX Hall Of Fame!
