Aaron captivates audiences with his charisma, his sense of humor, and relaxed attitude.
One can only wonder what it was like to parent a child like Aaron. He was adopted at birth, and grew up in Las Vegas, USA, with five other adopted siblings. “Aaron defeated all the odds, and embraced his disability in a unique way”, said his Dad, Steve. His advice to parents? “Let your kids take risks. Aaron never did a trick he wasn’t ready for. He knew his limits, and progressively challenged himself to try new things. When we saw him at the top of the 50-foot Mega Ramp, we were not scared. We knew he was ready.”
Since he is the first athlete of his kind, Aaron does not have a coach. “Nobody has done what I do before me. My friends who are professional BMX athletes give me advice, but they don’t really know how to do the tricks with a wheelchair. I have to figure it out on my own. It takes a lot of practice”, he said.
Aaron will continue to travel the world competing in WCMX events and supporting all the upstarts in the sport he pioneered.
