Here’s a really interesting video where Jordan Aleppo opens up about the tough life that he’s had and how BMX kept him going…
It’s always pretty wild how you can see somebody’s riding for years and never really know much about them. We’ve been fans of Jordan Aleppo and his riding or a number of years now, but we had no idea that he had a rough childhood. This video was definitely eye opening as Jordan tells the story of his childhood and, how he got into BMX and how it has helped him stay out of trouble and put in the work to get a real job and more. Not only is this a wild story, but there’s a ton of great riding in this one toward the end. Highly, highly suggest you give this a watch!
“As some of you may know that I’ve recently took a trip around the world, although one of the reasons why I went on this trip was to finally make time to ride my bike. The main reason was to get away from my reality.
After spending 8 months travelling around the world on my own where people can barely speak the same language, really open my eyes and allowed me to see things from a different perspective.
I’ve spent my whole childhood listening to counsellors telling me where I’m going to end up. However something as little as riding a BMX bike gave me the opportunity to change the path that was paved for me.
The things I mentioned in this video may be only be a sliver of my childhood,
I’ve always hidden my past, my name, my upbringing, the things I’ve done and the things I’ve seen.
But now, I more than welcome the name that was once given to me.
The Bastard Of The Abyss.
