Tony King, a Kansas City native, has been riding BMX since he was just 10 years old. Now 25, Tony rides to share his passion of riding with others. He is no longer in pursuit of self-gain in BMX, but instead, has a real desire to see the growth and development of other riders.
After losing his brother, Nick, to Leukemia in 2014, Tony has had a renewed sense of purpose to be that "older brother" figure to the next generation of skatepark kids who oftentimes lack that kind of positive influence in their lives. Haven given his life to Christ at the age of 15, Tony now sees his BMX capabilities as an opportunity to teach others better bicycle skills, which creates an avenue for him to share his own experiences, and love for the Lord.
Tony is motivated to be a Christ-like example for today's youth, and hopes for his leadership to have a lasting effect on them during such a formative time in their lives. He is spurred-on to this mission of discipleship by 1 Corinthians 11:1, in which Paul says, "Follow my example, for I follow the example of Christ."
Currently residing in Bentonville, Arkansas with his wife and dog, Tony uses his skills at the local skatepark weekly. Not only does Tony ride for Outcast BMX, but he also rides for Self Destruct, a Skate & BMX Ministry/Lifestyle Brand. Tony is the Manager of the Self Destruct BMX Team.
