Complex Says: Ruben is a bonafide legend of BMX, and yet he stays on top of BMX even today. No rider in recent years has been as influential or created so many new ways to ride as Ruben. Always pushing himself in his own way, he routinely has something new that no one else can do. In the last few months, it seems like all the BMX press has been realizing and talking about what a major influence Ruben has been. He's for sure on our list as one of the all-time greats, and he also scores a spot among the top riders right now.
