   The premier Pro/Am BMX Freestyle Competition in New York City, The King of New York is one of the longest running bicycle stunt competitions in the world and the only one of its kind in New York City. Always featuring the most insane riding by the best NYC has to offer, winning the King of New York allows bragging rights and a place in New York City action sports history.
