Dennis McCoy for best all round competition freestyle rider. He's won comps as a pro in all disciplines - flat, vert, bowl, mini and street. I know he used to race, not sure to what ability but I bet he was good at that too.

Brian Vowell!!
of course there are the plenty of others who've already been mentioned, but BV - he invented the 360 tailwhip, he does the craziest hang-5 park lines you'll ever see - and 10 years before all the new school kids started jumping on the hang-5 band wagon. all around complete shredder of every bmx discipline. i don't want to see this guy's legacy die. he is too incredible and far too unknown. he has a few amazing clips in baco 9 & 10... please check it out!

Yeah, the 360 over the spine to hang-five is nuts, as someone mentioned.  I think he also does/did wall rides to hang-fives.  Damn.

He's not quite on the Miron/DMC level, but Brett Downs is the only person I've ever seen do a double decade and a double backflip in the same day.
