BMX Street and Park rider Garrett Reynolds surprised everyone by finishing in seventh place in the 2005 Dew Cup standings as a raw 16-year-old. However, he proved his achievement was no fluke by finishing seventh in the same event in 2007 and fifth overall in 2008. Between 2009 and 2012 he never finished outside the top three on the tour.
A threat on the park course, it’s his performances in street competitions that allow him to stand out. In 2007, he took gold at X Games Brazil, X Games Mexico and X Games Dubai, finishing fourth in the X Games 13 street contest. He also won at Simple Session in 2008 and 2009, was named X Games street champion and NORA Street Rider of the Year in 2009, and won gold in BMX Street at X Games Barcelona in 2013.
Born on 2 August 1990 in New Jersey, laidback Garrett was introduced to the sport by his Dad Rick. Riding at the Incline Club near his hometown of Toms River, Reynolds started competing when he was just 12 years old, winning the Taz Tour and going pro the following year. He still lives close to the beach in New Jersey, riding ramps at his Mum’s house and meeting up with friends and family.
Reynolds' riding style is smooth and fearless. Being able to pull off even the most technical tricks seemingly effortlessly has gained him a reputation as one of the best park and street riders around, despite being one of the youngest in his field.
