Born in 1994 in Taipei, Chiao-Hung Cheng grew up watching his father ride BMX. At seven years old, his father’s friend gave Chiao his first BMX bike, and it was the most natural thing ever for him to take to the streets and parks, learning tricks, whips and flips. He developed a style that mixes street and park, and is now one of Taiwan’s best-known BMX athletes.
