6 kids who are more rad than you!

Most people who kick ass on two wheels have been honing their skills for many years. Here are six kids who prove that when it comes to mountain biking, skill doesn’t always come with experience.

Finn Finestone: aged 9

Finn is a local at Canada’s Whistler Bike Park and you can tell – he absolutely nails it, railing every berm, boosting every jump and even throwing in some tables and no-footers for good measure. Watch him in action here.

JP Maffret: aged 14

Dirt jumper JP Maffret’s just 14 and he’s already got 360s, no-handers and backflips dialled. Admire the young Canadian’s skill here.

Jackson Goldstone: aged 8

Living at Whistler and hanging out with riders like Tyler McCaul has certainly given Jackson the right start in the riding world – watch his whips and no-footers here.

Malcolm: aged 4

In the video below, four-year-old Malcolm rides the whole of Highland Mountain Bike Park’s Hellion jump trail for the first time. Sure he’s not pulling any crazy tricks, but at four years old (an age when some of us were still ingesting Play-Doh) it’s great to see this young New Englander riding the trails like a pint-sized pro. It’s a must watch – his commentary and hype is infectious!
