Byron has enjoyed a meteoric rise to success, taking his first win in Vert, which rarely sees new faces on the podium, within four years of turning pro. He has steadily increased the height of his airs and expanded his trick list in that time, culminating (for now) in the first-ever double tailwhip 540 landed on Vert in July 2011. He adapted to Big Air even faster, earning a silver medal in his debut in the discipline at X Games '11. In fact, he left XG '11 with two medals (also a bronze in Vert) and returns in 2012 as the only BMX athlete competing in three disciplines, having earned an invite to the Park event as well.
