I'm saddened to hear of the passing of Anthony Sewell.
He was the first Pro BMX racer to earn THREE number one titles in the same year
and more importantly, he was also an incredibly nice person.

Over the last two years he started coming to the BMX reunions, get togethers and national races.
He was always incredibly suprised, overwhelmed, and gracious to all who came up to him
and remembered his contribution to the sport

Last time I saw Anthony Sewell was Sun, Feb 8, 09' as I was leaving
the ABA So Cal Nationals at Lake Perris. Didn't even know he had been there all day.
He always had a big hug for me. I always shared with him a memory of something great
he did as a top Pro BMX racer.

I'll always remember DJing Gonzo's Bro-Down 08'
at Elysian Park and Anthony pop locking to "Think" by Lyn Collins

I'm very sad about this... anyone know what happened? I remember watching the first ever televised BMX race on ESPN in 1980 at Indy, and The Panther won it all on concrete!

A legendary all pro and class act.

My condolences to his family.

that's awful, he'll be missed. i remember the year i started '79, he came to our local track and rode with us. i think it was around the time he did the chips episode. he was so down to earth and so friggin fast. i'm glad i've had the opportunity to watch him blow people away on several occasions. RIP anthony.
