Daniel Sandoval is a 21 year old BMX Park Athlete. At his young age he already has 6 X Games starts as well as 3 total medals (1 Gold and 2 Bronze). This up and comer is definitely someone to watch!
Kyle Baldock is the three-time defending BMX Dirt gold medalist. At the age of 25, he has 6 X Games starts and a total of 4 Gold medals. Like Sandoval, Baldock is someone to keep your eye on.
