Hi, my name is Tyler Fernengel . My discipline is BMX park, street and dirt. My special talent is Motocross. I raced motocross for 12 years before BMX. My philosophy of life is Have the most fun you possibly can every day, otherwise you won’t be happy. The most important person in my life is My parents because they’ve helped get me where I’m at, and all of my friends. My favourite food is Mexican. My favourite music is hip hop or rap.


Tyler Fernengel spent 12 years as a motocross racer – from age two to 14 – before he made the switch to BMX, and the BMX industry sure is glad he did.

Now recognised as one of the best and brightest young stars in BMX, Fernengel has been making a name for himself as a multi-talented athlete who excels no matter whether he's riding the street, the park or dirt jumps. Dig BMX Magazine called him one of the 10 riders under the age of 20. He turned pro at 16 and later joined the Haro Bikes team at the recommendation of BMX pro Dennis Enarson.

A Detroit, Michigan native, Fernengel made the move to Southern California at 18 to chase his career in action sports. He's filmed notable video parts, from Mexico to China and all over North America, and his contest career is taking off.

"I feel like I'm doing what everyone dreams of doing," he says. "It's what I dreamed of doing. It's pretty unreal."
