RIP // MICHAEL BOWES


Yesterday we lost a good man to cancer, taken from us way too young. Michael Bowes was known by many within the Melbourne BMX scene for being naturally talented on a bike and sending more rails then most when he was only 14. There is a common topic that has been mentioned in all the tributes I have seen online and that is that Bowes would never say a bad thing about anyone and would do anything for his friends and family, this could not be any more true.

I dug up what photos I could find of Bowes and posted them below along with his section from an early BHP video which will give you a good idea of what we are talking about regarding his style on a bike. He was probably only 14 years old when this was filmed back in 2001.

I wish Bowes’s friends and family all the best during this shitty time. I hope they can find some pleasure knowing he touched many peoples lives and will always be remembered by our community.
