Hi, my name is Aaron Colton. My discipline is sportbike freestyle. My friends call me A.C.. I was born on 27 November 1991 in Seattle, USA. My special talent is showboating frontwheel stands. My philosophy of life is if it feels good, do it. The most important person in my life is my girlfriend, Daniela; I am literally a mess without her. My favourite food is anything that comes from inside my BBQ. My favourite music is Run the Trap.

Bio

Aaron Colton is a Red Bull KTM action sport athlete with over eight years of professional riding experience. He’s gained a broad respect throughout all disciplines of motorcycling, competing in Street Freestyle, AMA Pro Road Racing, AMA Pro Flat Track, as well as a handful of WORCS, supermoto and motocross races. His demo program spans across the United States with 25-plus activations and an additional two to three activation tours outside the Continental U.S. each year.

Aaron learned how to ride at the age of two with his first bike, a Yamaha PW50. However, his interest in motorcycling didn’t spark until the age of 12, riding alongside his father on trails and motocross parks nearby his hometown of Shakopee, Minnesota. It was at this time that Aaron started to develop an interest in the Street Freestyle scene with his Father learning and teaching him the general basics of “stunt riding.”

By the time Aaron reached the age of 13, his riding ability brought him into the competition scene of street freestyle, becoming the youngest XDL National Stunt Riding Champion at the age of 15. Since then, Aaron has gone on to win multiple championships.

As a versatile athlete, Aaron has continued to evolve his career with respected companies and organizations as one of the most recognized Street Freestyle riders in the world.
