1975 DOB: november 22, 1975.
early years Josh, www.ridebmx.com, june 2005: I basically grew up in the woods with my two sisters and brother in numerous houses that my father built. Harsh winters and humid summers, real simple living with all the ups and downs one could expect.

High airs, 540's and tailwhips earned him a much deserved win in stuntboys vert.

2000 Nowhere Fast video
Josh, bmxup decembre 2003: Dave Parrick est venu me voir et m'a demandé si je voulais bien figurer dans la vidéo. J'ai accepté et on s'y est mis. Le tournage de ma partie a pris un petit mois. J'avais encore mille chose à rentrer mais on a du tout arrêter car je me suis cassé le pouce. J'étais dégoûté mais curieusement, les gens ont aimé mon passage.
Taj Mihelich, www.ridebmx.com, march 2000: Having the honor of the last part in a video like this is no small task, and Heino takes the bull by the horns. Vert, street, skatepark—it's all here and it's all technical and burly. Josh risks life and limb for one of the most scarily progressive video parts that has been seen in years.

2nd place pro park @ La Revolution, Skate Street skatepark in Ventura, California, march 2000.

BS round 2, april 14-16, 2000, Louisville, KY. Knee injury.

Josh Heino is getting a signature frame called OMEN from We The People
Summer 2001, We The People is in the process of designing its first signature model with Josh Heino. The Omen utilizes We The People's flute tubing in the down tube and chainstays. Flute tubing is used in the We The People Everlast forks. Josh says that this will give the frame "added strength when floundering on grinds." Production models should be available in mid- to late- summer. Josh says that the Omen will come in earth tones and that it will cost "the same as all other high-quality frames." The Omen will be available in four different sizes. The top tube will be available in 20-1/4" and 20-3/4" and each can be combined with either a 14 1/8" or 14-3/4" rear. Josh plans to ride the 20-3/4" and 14-3/4" combination.
