When Steven McCann began his professional career in 2000, he regularly competed in both the park and dirt disciplines. Taking first place in dirt at the Australian X Games that same year, McCann followed it up with a gold medal in park at the Asian X Games in 2002. Consistently in the top 10 at big competitions, McCann also claimed second in the Latin X Games and fifth at the X Games in LA in 2004.
The only rider to compete in all three of the Dew Tour’s BMX disciplines starting in 2007, McCann has excelled in all of them, taking second place on the vert ramp at the Right Guard Open in July 2007. At the X Games that same year, he took sixth on the vert ramp, but shone in the Big Air contest, earning himself his first medal at the event – a silver. Later in ’07, he earned third place in the year-end Dew Tour vert rankings with top-four finishes at all five Dew Tour events.
At the 2008 Right Guard Open, McCann made Dew Tour history as the first BMX rider to qualify for the finals in the park, vert, and dirt disciplines at one stop. Also claiming an X Games bronze medal on the vert ramp in ’08, McCann took sixth at the JoMoPro and recorded his best Dew Tour finish to date in 2009, closing out the season in third place in the year-end vert rankings.
When not home in his native Australia, McCann spends his time in Woodward, Pennsylvania, teaching young riders the ropes of the sport his has mastered three times over.
