So, i did the largest bmx facility in the world.

Action sports is the fastest-growing sport in its last 10 years.

Kids from eight years old in 21 years old want to do something different.

They have been writing and doing baseball, basketball, baseball.

Sports is exciting.

I had to do something for everyone.

Why north carolina question mark i lived in greenville.

One of the best writers lived there.

I trained there and did most of my competing years there.

When i was looking to move and starting a new complex, where should i go?

I looked into raleigh.

They are one of the fastest-growing economies in america.

It is the number one place in america for families.

It just made sense.

When i moved in december, i drive around my street and i see kids.

This is a sport that might be intimidating for some just because it is not well-known like football or basketball, but i made sure that when i chose the complex, it was something that i can build and have medical staff on site at all times.

We have first responders.

For someone who has never touched a bike or skated before, to someone who can compete professionally.

I'm happy it is finally open.

You didn't do this alone.

Yep sponsors and other organizations helping you.

Tell us about that.

When i started they come when he -- mice or the complex, join with two other partners.

They have been great help.

Chelsea has lived there for a long time.

They helped me understand the area.

When we were talking about what i wanted to do, i said i wanted to do a family facility.

I don't want this to be like any other park around the country or around the world.

I want to be top-notch.

I want it to be clean.

I wanted to be neat.

People walk in, they will be like him will -- they will be like, whoa,. it has been great.

We have been able to make that.

What is the most amazing trick or move that you have done with bmx?

In maybe three or four years i invented a trick.

It is hard to explain.

I will do a 180, a backflip, then another 180. it is an intricate move.

I don't bring it out often.

It is hard and confusing when you are in the air.

It is a great trick.

Thank you very much.

We will check it out in your new facility in north carolina.

The bmx pro rider.
