Meet “The Crew” - Reppin’ Dirt Bike Kidz in Style
Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg - We’re gonna bet that you already know who he is, but we’ll tell you anyway. Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg founded Dirt Bike Kidz in 2012, but not before building a kickass career in both motocross and off-road truck racing. Known as one of the founders of FMX, Stenberg quickly rose to fame as one of the top athletes of his sport with record breaking rides in freestyle, best trick, step-up, speed and style, and best whip. In addition to award-winning competitions that span over two decades, Twitch has starred in shows like MTV’s True Life and VH1’s The X-Life. In 2012, he released his film 420% All Natural to wide acclaim, followed by the 2014 Chasing the Storm. His goal in founding Dirt Bike Kidz was to prove that designing cool, ready-to-wear products and having a fruitful career can go hand in hand.
Tyler Bereman - Originally from Templeton, CA, Tyler has been killing the game since he started riding. Inspired as a kid by the legendary rides of Jeremy McGrath as well as his family’s love for flat track racing, Tyler entered the sport in 2010 with a win at the AMA Amateur Nationals. Known for his laid back approach and positive vibes, Tyler has won medals at several X Games from 2013 to 2019, where he won Best Whip and earned silver in QuarterPipe High Air. He also moonlights as a stunt rider, busting through a plate glass window of a casino in Fox’s Lethal Weapon series. These days, he spends his time free riding, doing stunt work, and finding out where his determination and drive will take him next.
Genki “Wanky” Watanabe - Two time X Games silver medalist from Osaka, Japan, Watanabe is a freestyle Motocross athlete who has built on the legacy of his mentors and inspirations to forge his own style. Starting out on the racetrack at the All Japan National MX Championships, Watanabe soon found his place on the bike ramps. He went on to win Silver for Best Whip at X Games Norway 2019 and X Games Minneapolis 2018, as well as first place for Biggest Whip at the 2019 Monster Energy Cup. Both competitions came after a lengthy recovery from a serious injury sustained in 2018, which was further complicated by compartment syndrome. Now, he’s back on the track and repping DBK with the crew.
Vicki Golden - Since beginning her Motocross career in 2000, Golden has broken boundaries and built a name for herself in the sport. Between 2011 and 2012, Golden won three consecutive gold medals in Women’s Moto X Racing at the X Games, plus the bronze for Moto X Best Whip. Known for breaking the glass ceiling for women in motorcross–from becoming the first female in the Top 10 in AMA Arena Cross Lites Main to being the first woman competitor in Monster Energy’s AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship–Golden is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished riders in the sport. Golden grew up in El Cajon, California, where she learned to ride dirt bikes with her older brothers from the age of seven. Her first bike, a Honda XR50, was a surprise gift from her parents, allowing her to begin to learn how to ride professionally on the hills of San Diego. Now that she’s back on the road after an injury in 2018, the Motocross world can’t wait to see what Golden does next.
