Meet KJ Romero
KJ is the Youtube Mastermind behind the Supercross brand. He was first introduced to BMX racing when he was just five years old. After seeing a commercial on TV for the local race track, KJ and his brother headed out to see what it was all about. KJ and his brother borrowed some bikes from their cousin, and KJ became hooked on the sport after that day 23 years ago.
KJ has been in the sport for quite some time and has competed against some top-notch riders. His most significant achievements were winning the USA BMX Rookie Pro of the Year award in 2012, and turning AA Pro the most elite proficiency in the sport of BMX. Racing the elite class was an excellent learning experience for KJ, and he had a blast battling it out with some of the best racers in the world! To name a few, KJ got to line with the likes of Mike Day, Donny Robinson, Maris Strombergs, and THE Kyle Bennett.
KJ is a longtime friend of the Supercross brand and has been a part of the family for over 12 years. He was first picked up in 2012 by our sister company, Factory Anarchy. After a year and a half of riding for Anarchy, KJ ventured off into full-time job life. He would later rejoin the Supercross family at the beginning of 2016. KJ was more than happy to rejoin the Supercross family. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with us in the past, and the team is his family. He enjoys hanging out with everyone at the races and having fun with his people. Also, KJ really digs the race whips we supply him with!
Looking forward, KJ doesn't have too many race-related goals. He's just enjoying the ride and hanging out with friends at the track. Outside of BMX, KJ's goals are to provide for his family, become a photographer/videographer, become fully monetized on YouTube, and live a healthy lifestyle. In his spare time, you can find KJ building dirt jumps, riding trails with friends, doing electrical work, or producing YouTube videos for the Supercross team.
