Over at The Kitchen Skatepark during the 2017 Stand For Scotty Pro/Am I got to witness Jared Wiedower shred the park. Flowing and flipping and doing wicked nothing clap behind the backs. This kid is full of gnarlyness when he is having fun on his BMX bike. Jared is a local at Four Seasons Skatepark in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He shreds the park with confidence. He had a photo shoot there with Harley Davidson. (Picture below)

What got you into riding? My father used to race when he was a kid. I used to see pictures of him racing and wanted to do the same, but I liked jumping curbs and hitting dirt jumps.
What inspires you to ride? My family, friends, and my local skateparks of course!
When you go to ride do you have a idea for new tricks or just go there and whatever comes to you, you try? A little bit of both. I try to expand my riding style as much as possible because I really like BMX all around. There’s no better feeling than trying a trick for hours on end and finally pulling it.
