11 Year Old Jared Thompson Lands his First Backflip & Sheds a Tear

Another “BMX Grom” backflip learned right here at The Factory during “Flip School” with TwisterX15! This past weekend in Minneapolis, 11 year old Jared Thompson just could not believe that he actually committed, sent, and rotated his first backflip ever on a BMX jump. Watch this moment of a lifetime as all the homies storm in and congratulate him on his big accomplishment.

8 YEAR OLD Reed Bleymeyer Lands his First Backflip & Sheds a Tear

Earlier this year, 8 year old Reed Bleymeyer had to choose his birthday present, an Amazon Kindle, or chipping in for his own skatepark key at The Factory, and you know exactly what he picked !! Not even one year later, Reed just became one of the youngest riders ever to land backflips on a BMX bike. And all on our massive 6 footer, he’s been doing suicides & nothings in our shows all summer. Your parents family and friends are so proud of you Reed, you set a goal and you crushed it, can’t wait until our next show !!
