Tyler Fernengel, 18, was a motocross racer before he switched over to BMX around age 12. He got his first sponsor at age 14, and now 18, he's recently moved from his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, to Southern California to pursue a career in action sports and continue competing in BMX dirt, park and street contests. Last year, he made the move to Haro Bikes' team and placed ninth at Simple Session.
