Steve Veltman Wiki:

Stephen James Veltman (b. August 4, 1969 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania;[1] later raised in Conroe, Texas U.S.) is a former American “Old School/Mid School” professional Bicycle Motocross (BMX) racer whose prime competitive years were from 1980–1985 and 1987 to 1998. His nickname during the time he first achieved fame as a 12 and 13 year old was “Spider-Man” due to the posture he had as he speed jumped his bicycle over moguls. He would be tucked all the way back over and just above the rear wheel. His right elbow would be down while his left up as opposed to having them near perfectly level. This along with his red and white Hutch uniform and helmet with mirrored lensed goggles gave an impression of the comic book superhero Spider-Man swinging on his web.[2] His later moniker “V”-Dog” came into being concurrently with him joining the Vans Racing Team in April 1991.[3] He was also known as “Primetime”.
