Chris James is a 25 year old BMX rider from Cairns, Queensland. He grew up racing and riding a lot of dirt, before moving into park riding at age 14. He became a local at the Cairns skateparks, and was picked up as one of Spent's very first sponsors in 2012. In 2013 his progression led him to move to the Gold Coast where he started riding with some of the biggest names in the sport. His skill level accelerated at lightning speed over a short period of time. Chris's 2014 edit "Bigger Than Yours" racked up almost 20 000 views and got the attention of some big names, landing him a bike sponsorship with Sunday Bikes. His attitude is the biggest contributor to his success in the sport; he has a passionate drive to better himself and loves to achieve what most are too scared to do. Highlights of his riding career have been performing at many JC Action Sports shows, winning/placing at various competing around the country, riding with Nitro Circus at their Gold Coast show, and just hitting things BIG. Chris is currently working on a new edit with Spent that is set to blow some minds, due to be released in the next few months.
