Wikipedia puts the start of BMX Racing in the early 70's, and Freestyle BMX (stunt biking) was a later offshoot. This happened years earlier. Here's a video of a Japanese ballerina who was doing bicycle tricks in 1965.
By the way, Wiki also says that last year, the Olympic Committee announced it was adding Freestyle BMX to the games in 2020. That's a great reason for me to start watching them again. ~Brian
