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. The trailer park was all they could afford at the time, but who would have thought his new home and some dirt jumps in the area would launch his career as a Pro BMX Bike Rider! He turned pro at the age of 18 and was crowned the "King of Dirt" and the number #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. His career has led to a number of huge accomplishments including being the first Hispanic speaking announcer at the X-Games. Performed in shows world wide and he has hosted his very own Action Sports and Music Festival in Las Vegas for the past 7 years named The Ricardo Laguna Pro-BMX Dirt Challenge at ExtremeThing. His face has graced the cover of several BMX magazines Plus Las Vegas Magazine. He was voted the hottest bachelor by Vegas Magazine in 2009 and has appeared in several nationally acclaimed Television shows including Holly's Worlds on E!, hosting episodes on Latination, featured on ESPN's Hottest Whips as well as appearances on Fuel TV and Telemundo. He was nominated by BMX Plus for Dirt Jumper of the year. In his free time Laguna enjoys speaking and riding at public schools and skate parks here in Las Vegas as well as working on his own BMX training facility in his backyard.
