Justin Perkins is our little ripper out of Phoenix, Arizona. Currently racing in the 11x class, Justin started racing BMX when he was just 3 years old!

As for BMX Racing, Justin loves the competition and having friends all over the country. He alsoenjoys the traveling that accompanies racing. One of Justin’s favorite things is showing off hisshiny new BLK Envy 2 at every chance he gets. We don’t blame him, they look sweet!
