Interested in basketball and athletics as a child, Bora Altıntaş first encountered BMX at the age of 13 through friends. Since then, BMX has never left the Turkish Cypriot rider’s life.
Working endlessly on his skills on the ramp he built using the door his father took from their own house, Bora continued to improve himself day by day. In 2014, the small skatepark that his father hand built in the park next to their house allowed Bora to go one step further.
His hard work was rewarded by winning the BMX Street Festival in Limassol, Cyprus three times between 2015 and 2016.
In 2017, he achieved his first success outside of Cyprus after claiming second place in the Turkey BMX Day and fourth place in the RideOnBmx competition held in Greece.
Having completed construction of the Fibera BMX Skatepark project in 2018, which he’d been planning for a while with the support of their parents, Bora also gained a top class skatepark to train on, paving the way for other successes in 2019.
Most notable was the renowned Nass Festival in England, which is one of the most important professional competitions in the world, where athletes can only participate by invitation. Bora achieved an important result there by taking the sixth place among 30 of the world’s best athletes.
Bora then participated in the RideonBmx Battle in Thessaloniki, Greece the same year and managed to win with the team he led.
BORA Altıntaş BMX and Red Bull athlete Bora Altıntaş attended the NASS festival held in England. Turkish Cypriot athlete Bora Altıntaş managed to stay in the finals of the BMX races at the NASS festival, which was held between 7th and 10th of July, featuring music, street art, skateboarding and BMX.
