Day three of the Lil Pros BMX tour is in full swing right now. Ben Snowden's backyard and the Vans park in Orange are on the program for Sunday. But here's an update from young ripper Kaden Stone on day two, when most time was spent at the Clairmont YMCA in San Diego.
Did you guys hang out together last night? Kaden Stone: Ya it was a blast hanging out with them
Did you watch some footage from day one? Kaden Stone: ya it was so sick
Day 2 of the Lil BMX PROS tour is a fact. More spots, more tricks, more good times. Who's got some power left? Victor Peraza does. Papa Peraza locked the keys in the car but some bum got them out so they could move on to the next location. The things you experience on the road.....
Did you guys hang out together last night? Victor Peraza: Yeah, we were all playing Hide & go seek, we all slept in a 7 by 7 room, really crowded.
Did you watch some footage from day one? Victor Peraza: Today after the session at Clairmont YMCA Skatepark Ryan Guettler pulled out his laptop and showed all of us
When we first heard about the Young Guns BMX Tour we wanted to get involved because it was a perfect fit for the FATBMX Kids section on FATBMX which focuses on the young riders in BMX. After a few e-mail exchanges with organiser Dustin Grice we were on board and ready to report about the tour. We got in touch with the young riders and asked them what expectations they had about the tour. Now two days later the boys are having a blast. One of them is Bryce Tyron who lives BMX. Here's his take on day two.
Did you guys hang out together last night? Bryce Tryon: Yes! We had a blast! I’m suprised we got any sleep!
When kids can relate, it doesn't matter if they haven't met before. Before this weekend most young riders didn't know eachother. That changed quickly. A few days on the road together and they'll become friends for life, because of that little bike they're riding. Here's Dallas Light's take on day two:
Did you guys hang out together last night? Dallas Light: Yes we did hang out last night, till way too late!
Did you watch some footage from day one? Dallas Light: No, but I did an interview with Ryan Guettler
On Friday The Lil BMX PROS BMX tour started. Also on board was non other than Bryce Tryon. The trip kicked off well with many pro riders visiting the kids and riding with them. A dream come true for everyone on board. Big up to Dustin Grice and his crew for putting the work in setting things up and all the parents and volunteers by giving the kids a weekend they'll never forget. Support from the sponsors should not be forgotten. They see the big picture of growing BMX, which starts with the kids. Anyway, back to Bryce. Microphone check one-two:
Where did you all meet up today? Bryce Tryon: We met up at Kaden’s house

30 hours on the road to meet up with a group of young BMX-ers is a long time. But well worth it. The Lil Pros BMX Tour is a trip of a lifetime that the boys will never forget. See how DALLAS LIGHT experienced his first day.
