Kevin "K-Rob" Robinson
BMX / United States
The G-Form Family is deeply saddened by the loss of veteran BMX professional and Providence hometown hero Kevin âK-Robâ Robinson. Kevin launched his BMX career in East Providence, RI with passion, perseverance, and pride. Just a few of Kevinâs many accomplishments include 10 XGames medals (4 gold), a Guinness World Record for longest power-assisted bicycle backflip, starting the K-Rob Foundation that assists underserved children in athletics, and his constant presence in the local school system promoting a healthy, active lifestyle to children.
Ride in Peace, Kevin. You will be greatly missed by many.
Kevin Robinson, a pioneer of BMX, has been pushing the limits of the sport for over 25 years. A 10-time X Games medalist, Robinson, AKA "K-Rob" is one of the most successful action sports athletes in history. Having endured more than his fair share of falls, protection and safety are of the utmost importance to Robinson as an athlete, parent, and active member of the riding community. We are proud to support his initiative “K-Rob Foundation” to help underprivileged children of Rhode Island stay involved in sports and raise awareness on the importance of safety through school outreach programs.
