I started when I was 12, rode ramps, street, flatland, I tried BMX racing.  Its in my blood.
All things in life are temporary. If going well...enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong donít worry, they can't last long either.

Ive been riding bikes since i could walk. Started bmx at about 13, I rode Flatland for about a year & my bike got stolen. Bought a street bike rode that for numerous years. Bought a couple of flatland bikes & rode on & off. Sold them, now im moving back to Flatland again.

started riding bmx when i was 9, small jumps and things...then Flatland when i got 13.  I'm 40.
 
But the age does not mean anything, some have been riding 2 years and are incredibly good, others like me have been riding all their life and are just barely ok...
