Introducing Brady “The King” King! Brady started riding when he was just 6 years old and says his mom and his aunt got him into racing. He joined the J&R National Team in 2022 and while Brady says he doesn’t have a favorite pro rider, he does have a favorite track. “My favorite track to ride is Glasgow BMX Centre because of how smooth it is,” he explains.

Competitive BMX racing involves plenty of highs and lows, but Brady says his favorite part is, “Just riding my bike and having fun.” It can take a lot of work in order to have great rides and a good time and Brady says the biggest challenge for him is, “Training.” And that training clearly pays off. The accomplishment he is most proud of on the track so far was “2019. My first full season racing nationals, where I finished NAG 3,” he remembers. At the time of this interview, at the beginning of the year, Brady said he was most looking forward to Worlds in Rock Hill. “I feel that I have a chance to make the main and grab a world plate,” he stated. And he was right! Brady earned World 7 and we couldn’t be more proud of him.

We look forward to seeing you up on the podium, Brady! Best of luck from the whole J&R Family!
