FREESTYLE BMX rider Jacman Hinss said last week that he would be heading to America in September to try his hand on the amateur circuit.

The 19 year old Euroa local said his first foray into stunts was on a Spiderman bike that his uncle bought for him when he was about five or six.

“At the front of the house there was a tree with a root you could jump off,” he said.

Jacman said that during this time, he got into the video game Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX and decided he wanted to do everything on it.
