Gary just keeps getting better. Hit play ’cause you’re definitely not going to want to miss this.
Next up we have the Grow Up doubles section. We had a lot of fun with this one, but make no mistake, some of these clips took hours to film, and there were some really close calls. I’m gonna say it was well worth it.
Gary Young is 33 years old, has been a pro rider for 15 years, and is at the top of his game. It’s hard to understand how after so much time as one of the most skilled BMXers on the planet Gary’s abilities could possibly continue to improve, but there’s no question – he’s never ridden better.
A big part of Gary’s sustained upward trajectory comes from how he keeps it fresh. Gary is nothing if not adaptable: he continues to evolve with BMX and embrace new forms of riding and changing bike setups while still maintaining his core pedal-to-the metal style of hauling ass and charging through any obstacle in his path. Gary rides everything, and he rides it at full speed and with unmatched authority.
Perhaps even more impressive, while filming for Grow Up, Gary also managed to be a devoted husband, raise a young daughter, celebrate the birth of his son Lincoln, ride in the X Games twice, and film his epic Vans Illustrated video part. If you don’t think that’s incredible, you don’t have even a passing understanding of how hard any one of those things is. Seriously, Gary’s the man, and his Grow Up part is sick.
If you haven’t seen Grow Up yet, you can buy the digital download for $5, or buy the DVD and get over an hour’s worth of bonus footage. Also make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to get instant updates on new releases!
