“Gilly Smalls”, “Magilla Cruddy”, or simply “Magilla” is an outlaw by simply being one of the true underrated heroes of the BMX world. He choses his own path, runs his own race — always under the radar. Trail guru and dial master, he has been active outside the media for years, building jumps and breathing life into the BMX scene since the late ‘80s.
He has built dirt jumps for almost every major contest for the last 15 years, and many of the more famous trails as well. It is estimated he has moved 85,000 cubic metres of dirt and clay, with a shovel, and 1.6 million with heavy equipment, none for himself, and all for BMX.
