Maybe some of you guys with scanners can post some pics
Was it:
Kirk Chrisco?
Buildin Leapin Jones?
Trash Can Morgan?
RL Osborn?
Timmy Judge?
Hollywood Mike Miranda?
Chris Moeller?
Woody Itson?

Kirk was way cool and a Orange local. Trash can was just insane but was seemingly a flash in the pan. Judge is a legend. But I am torn between RL Osborn and BLJ. I loved the old blue and yellow MFM uniforms and Electro helmets.
But not one to like to give out ties I'll take Buildin Leapin Jones
Oz saw them jump more than I did so Id love to hear his take of course.

Oz snapped some amazing jump images for BMXA over the years. How 'bout Buff when he jumped off the roof of the bike shop? Or Stu jumping over the Porsches? I'll throw in a second vote for Tim Judge, though. That guy was right at home when he was off the ground.

You can't say "of all time" without including modern riders like Chris Doyle or Mike Aitken.

Bitd- TJ, Medrano, BLJ and Buff were favorites.

I got to say I have a soft spot for BLJ and Trashcan Morgan, but Mad Dog has to be the one. He bridged the gap between old and new school. Some of the earliest no foot cans, and he invented the truck driver for heaven's sake. Plus he's still doing it - tuck no-hander in a recent shot I saw. I know not everybody likes him personally, but the man deserves major props.
