BMX riders who specialize in vert.

Though many of the best BMX vert riders are actually just all-around great riders, there are certainly a few that stick out in the world of vert. Whether you want to call it vert or transition, these dudes to follow know their way around a ramp, and often landed themselves in the top spot of vert competitions around the globe. Of course, the half-pipe isn't as big and popular as it was through the early 2000s, and maybe that's because some of these top vert riders have since moved on to other areas of the sport. 

As you can imagine, Jamie Bestwick and Mat Hoffman are going to be found at the top of the list, as they'll both go down as the best and gnarliest vert riders of all time. Who else could take the podium at X Games nearly 10 years straight? We all know the answer is basically no one. Now, check out the vert riders below and vote up the best to do it.
