Hi, my name is Mike Day. My discipline is BMX Race. My friends call me 365 Day. I was born on 9 October 1984 in Tarzana, California, USA. My special talent is my strength and speed. My philosophy of life is success is earned through hard work and a commitment to doing whatever it takes to be in top form. My favourite food is Mexican.

Bio

In an era where most BMX racers spend more time at the gym than they do on the bike, Mike Day brings a natural finesse to the track, fusing the requisite full-throttle burst of power with killer style.

Mike discovered BMX with his older brother and a promising amateur career led him to turn pro in 2002. At the 2003 Summer X Games, he scored a last-minute invite and rode it all the way to a bronze medal in Downhill BMX. After sealing up the coveted NBL #1 Pro series title in 2005 and earning a NORA Cup award for Racer of the Year, Mike turned his focus to the new international BMX Supercross series, which featured advanced tracks with huge roll-ins and bigger jumps.

Day spent months dialling in the Supercross format and earned a spot on the 2008 US Olympic team. He brought home a silver medal from Beijing and put the icing on the cake with his second NORA Cup award at the end of the year.

After rigorous physical therapy and surgery for a spinal disc problem, Mike made his mark in 2012 by placing third at the epic Red Bull R.Evolution event in Berlin, Germany.
