Aaron Ross has been steady killing it as a top pro BMXer for more than a decade. That's an impressive feat for any rider, but damn near unthinkable for someone who works as hard as Aaron. Check out his domination of the Grow Up crash trailer or his substantial contribution to the wrecks section in the Grow Up bonus, or just take my word for it – Aaron gives it his all.

But Aaron won't be stopped, and he's always willing to push himself to the limit to get done what he knows he can get done.
