I knew Chris had a cousin that was pro back in the day but didn’t think too much about it since he was pro before my time. Seeing this video and seeing how much Roger even looks like Chris, it’s surreal to think his cousin was a badass pro back in his day. Seeing them ride together, you’ll notice that Roger has a bit of a wild side but can definitely still bust out at 40+. This is cool as hell and I’d highly recommend watching it for those those that always wished they had a BMX legend in the ol’ family tree.
“They say it’s a small world, and BMX is, apparently, an even smaller one. As it turns out, Chris Doyle, one of the most prolific and talented riders of our time, has a cousin named Roger Sullivan who was a professional BMX rider in the late 1980s. I had to learn more about this highly unlikely family connection, so Chris and I headed down to Florida to meet up with Roger, hang out, and ride bikes with this BMX legend from the past.” – Walter Pieringer
