Raised by his family on Glasgow’s Drumchapel estate, John Buultjens slept rough to escape his violent father’s beatings. 

Placed in a children’s home by his mother, he was eventually adopted and turned his life around becoming one of BMX’s biggest names. 

In Ride John reveals his inner secrets including family murders, hatred, sexual abuse – and how his white-knuckle ride has taken him to the top against all the odds. 

It lays bare the harrowing beginnings and the tough life lessons he learned and forms the basis for a Hollywood movie, set for release later in the year.
