Whitby, Ontario, Canada's Mike Varga is not only the youngest BMX athlete, he's also the only teenager competing in the sport at X Games Austin 2016. Varga finished 3rd overall at the 2016 Simple Session contest on April 30 and was recently featured in a Monster Energy "Home Turf" video. Living north of Lake Ontario, Varga's riding season might be shorter than his competition's but his backyard wooden ramp park is a skills-honing paradise. At 19 years 6 mos., if Varga wins, he would become the youngest BMX Park gold medalist in X Games history, edging out Scotty Cranmer's 2006 record by less than two weeks.
