Born and raised in Austin, Chase has been a gifted BMX rider since age 7. Though he lacks the newest, biggest box jump tricks, he's long been known as a soulful rider much-admired by peers for his high speed flow and creative line choices. The 2014 XG Park course seemed custom-built for Chase, and he earned his first medal, gold, in his 8th appearance. Chase loves Austin, and its citizens love him in return. The mayor even named August 16 as Chase Hawk Day. While his competition tries to avoid wilting in the searing sun, he'll be searching for new lines on the course.
