Harry Mills


I remember seeing Harry ride when he was a youngster. He rode in a group of kids who were all way too good for their age. This must have been six years ago. Over time most of these riders drifted off, but not Harry; he simply found new people to session with.

This kid kills it wherever he rides; whether it’s park, street or dirt. His background in MX is evident in his style and in the ease in which he controls his bike. Harry is a clear inspiration to the BMX rats in Exeter.

Here’s more from the Boarding House and 4 Down Distribution rider.
