One random day I was at my grandmas, in the 8st projects, I was about 7 yers old. One of the gangsters local gagster just randomly sed “Watch this” and jumped off a ledge. I was so shocked I didn’t even know u could do that kind one f stuff with a bike, shorty after I got my bike and tried doin random stunts. I really didn’t take it to serious and kinda got over it. As I got older I started to skate but it really wasn’t fo me, one random day A couple my friends and I found some dirt jumps and decided to pull up there with our bikes and it just started to go from ther. Once I found out you could grind rails and ledges I went from liking to loving bmx. And just been going from ther.
