TCU TV: The Biz Jordan Interview

Surprise: We’ve got 2 episodes of TCU TV for you this week. Today we’re happy to present you with a look into the mind of Biz, a legendary BMX rider who has been around for more BMX history than almost anybody. I did my research for this one and came through with a long list of questions about many of Biz’s most notable BMX moments and he came with some pretty candid answers.
