Hailing from Andres, Colombia, Julian has been inspiring the world through BMX for years. At age 7, while riding a skateboard, Julian was hit by a bus sustaining a severe break to his leg. The injury worsened and as a matter of life or death, Julian’s leg had to be amputated. Years later, Julian discovered BMX, which turned his life around in the way of 360’s, flips and whips. His first bike was purchased with his own hard-earned money, saved from selling candy, and since then it has become like a true extension of himself.
His motto, “If you dream something, you do it,” has made him unstoppable in his pursuits. The first adaptive BMX rider to compete in the X-Games Real BMX, Julian was voted the 2020 Fan Favorite winner. Serving as a true inspiration to everyone he meets, Julian values his friendships over everything else and as a result, has been blessed with an endless supply of love and support in the BMX community and beyond.
