Hi, my name is Mike 'Hucker' Clark. My discipline is BMX Dirt. My friends call me Hucker. I was born on 28 September 1987 in California, USA. My special talent is my surf style and hang 5s. My philosophy of life is life's a garden, just dig it. My favourite music is classic rock.


Mike 'Hucker' Clark is one of those riders with a glaringly obvious natural talent. A pro BMX dirt rider, Hucker is also partial to a bit of surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and even motocross when the mood takes him. Hailing from Fountain Valley - an area in close proximity to the Sheep Hills and trails of Orange County (Southern California) - Hucker is a SoCal soul through and through, with his flowing surfstyle clearly identifiable in his riding technique. 

Hucker has been riding since the late 90s, when he got his first GT. His natural flair on a bike meant that he picked up a number of sponsors in his teens, and in 2010 really came to the fore when he picked up the third spot at Red Bull Stomping Ground in Chicago. Another third place at Red Bull Dream Line in 2011 and a very respectable sixth place on the Dew Tour soon followed, with Hucker's reputation as a "must-see" rider steadily growing.

In 2012, Hucker joined the Red Bull team, jumping straight in with a place on the Red Bull Ride tour. He has since earned a fourth place at the popular Red Bull Empire of Dirt in London, a second place podium finish at the Vans Kill the Line competition in France, as well as a NORA Cup award for Best Dirt Jumper. Mike continues to pick up a multitude of Best Rider and Best Trick awards and podium spots like the one at VANS Kill the Line in 2013 in his unstoppable path to success.
