Banasiewicz, 17, may be the youngest BMX competitor at X Games 2012, but he's far from inexperienced. In fact, this early bloomer started receiving support from companies at just 9 years old, turned pro at 13 and already will be making his third XG appearance in 2012. Armed with an electrifying style and some of the biggest tricks in the sport, he earned high contest finishes throughout the 2010 and '11 seasons and kicked off 2012 with double wins in Park and Dirt at France's FISE event in May. When "Mad Dog" is on course, expect huge moves and a vocal fan base of smitten teenage girls cheering him on.
