What makes a binking legend? Winning a race? Winning multiple categories? Winning races for years (or even decades)? Tinker Juarez has done it all!

David Juarez, better known as Tinker Juarez (and also known as Hollifield Flash), won his first BMX Grand National Championship at age 14. He subsequently won professionally in BMX racing, freestyle BMX, cross-country mountain bike racing and marathon mountain bike racing for over thirty years.

US Olympic mountain biker? Checkmark on that too. Tinker raced as a member of the United States Olympic Team in the 1996 and 2000 olympics.

Just this year, Tinker took the gold medal at the 2019 Sea Otter Classic in the XC Men's Masters 55-59, category 1. Safe-Tec is honored Tinker chose the Tyr 3 helmet to make his latest win.
