This kid is a classic example of natural talent; it’s astonishing what he can do on a bike given that he’s only been riding for five years.

In 2011 he competed in events including NASS where he made the final, and the Knock-Out jam in Munich, which he won.

Palmer had a big crash at the end of 2011, but he’s back on his bike and tearing it up already. Watch out for him at comps this year.
