Born in California and growing up in South Dakota, James spent most of his younger years honing his craft of motorcycle riding, sharing that it all started on a BMX bicycle. As one would expect in the profession of freestyle motocross, James endured some significant accidents resulting in broken bones. Still, focus and hard work got him back on that motorcycle and pushing his profession forward, which has led him to a fulfilling career that includes travel all over the world and even performing with Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus shows.
When you attend a Freestyle Motocross event and watch James perform, you will see how those early BMX biking days helped him perfect his talent of “smooth-sailing” through the air on his motorcycle. You will also see how much James enjoys interacting with his fans, especially the young kids. James is now anxiously awaiting the birth of his first daughter and the opportunity to introduce her to two wheels with a Strider Balance Bike.
