Hi, my name is Benjamín Hudson. My discipline is BMX Flatland. My friends call me Hudson or Pelao. I was born on 7 October 1995 in Santiago, Chile. My special talent is maintaining balance and finding solutions. My philosophy of life is we’re in a temporary state that we come to learn through physical means and all that this implies. The most important person in my life is my family. My favourite food is sushi. My favourite music is tribal and trap.


Benjamín Hudson has been a professional BMX Flatland rider for eight years, but BMX has been part of the Chilean's life for a lot longer than that.

Riding from an early age, it was't until Hudson performed more than 400 demos in China that his way of looking at flatland changed, and he decided to turn pro.

Since then Hudson hasn't stopped working. He's constantly trying to progress his riding and innovate to take flatland to a new levels, and spread it's word not only in Chile, but around the world.
