Onlookers shocked as The Grinch cooks up a storm with gnarly bike tricks on NYC streets
It’s not every day that you’ll see The Grinch doing bike tricks on the streets of New York City. However, that is exactly what happened yesterday. Caught on social media, the video shows a BMX rider performing tricks on the side of a building before quickly riding off. While seeing freestyles in the first place isn’t too common, seeing it performed by someone in a Grinch costume makes it even more surreal. However, this is NYC during the Christmas season so anything can happen.
It turns out that this was the work of a very skilled, local BMX freestyler. According to the videographer, the cyclist claimed they were Panza who is a celebrity within the BMX community.
Anthony Panza is a well-known BMX rider and bike enthusiast. He’s known for his freestyle riding and his signature bike, the “Panza,” which is made by Cult BMX. Panza is also active on social media, where he shares his riding videos and tips for aspiring riders. Over the years, he has become a respected voice in the BMX community and has been featured in numerous BMX magazines and online publications. Panza is also the founder of Bonzi Garage, a bike shop and community space in New York City.
