Ricardo Laguna along with Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas, Clark County School District Police Department, Nevada Department of Public Safety and Mountain View Hospital team up once again in an effort to educate young people about the importance of making safe decisions.
Kids (and adults) will have the chance to meet the BMX star and receive a free helmet to keep them safe while they enjoy riding that new bike, scooter, or skateboard they received this holiday season.
Additionally, Laguna and friends will put on a BMX demonstration for everyone and other entertainment including music by DJ Ocho, free bike raffles, and much more.
Born and raised in La Paz, Mexico, Ricardo Laguna moved to Las Vegas when he was just 13 years old. Laguna first began to ride BMX as soon as he and his family found their new home in a trailer park in Las Vegas with a lot of dirt jumps nearby. He turned pro at the age of 18 and is crowned the “King of Dirt” and ranked the No. 1 Latin and South American Dirt Jumper in the world. Throughout his career Laguna has competed in the X-Games, The Dew Action Sports Tour, Gravity Games, Nokia Fise, BMX Masters, Lord of Dirt Competition and the World’s series.
His career has led to a number of huge accomplishments including being the first Spanish-speaking announcer at the X-Games. Laguna has performed in shows worldwide and has hosted his own challenge in Las Vegas for the past 10 years called “The Ricardo Laguna Pro-BMX Dirt Challenge” at the annual Extreme Thing Sports & Music Festival. In March 2012, Laguna premiered The Ricardo Laguna Project, an MTV Tr3s reality series that offer a glimpse into the life of Laguna as he attempts to break three world records, begin his own family business and balance his family and Las Vegas social life.
Kids must be present for helmet fitting and helmets are available while supplies last.
