Jarryd McNeil hails from the land down under, in Kerang, Australia, and began riding bikes around his family’s dairy farm when he was a toddler. At the age of nine, he began competing in motocross competitions and won multiple championships before officially turning pro.
When McNeil was 18, he transitioned over to freestyle motocross and then in 2010, after receiving an invite to the X Games, decided it was time to make the big move. Since moving to America, McNeil has won 12 X Games medals, including winning first at the Monster Energy Cup Best Whip competition – twice.
