Before joining Monster Energy’s pro BMX team, Jeremy Malott traveled the world and shook up the amateur ranks as part of the Monster Army. Growing up in the high desert town of Lancaster, California, he was already competing in motocross and BMX track races at age 10. Once he turned 17, he discovered freestyle BMX as his true passion.
With a full focus on expanding his trick repertoire, Malott soon evolved into a fierce competitor. In 2016, Malott won the freestyle BMX championship at the Monster Recon Tour. He had moved to Lake Havasu, Arizona, one year earlier for the vibrant BMX scene and one of the largest skateparks in the U.S. Jeremy Malott’s diverse bag of tricks has earned him several wins at international competitions, including first place in Best Trick at FISE events Montpellier, France and in Hiroshima, Japan, where he landed the world’s first 360 Triple Whip to Bar Spin. He also took second place overall at Barcelona Xtreme, and third place at the Toronto Jam.
Jeremy Malott has dreamed of riding in X Games his entire life. When the invite to the Boise Qualifier didn't come, he decided to take his own trip up to the park to see what he could put down. Who knows, maybe X Games will like what they see and send him a wildcard invite?
My 2017. With only two flat tires in 2017 it gives an indication of how smooth Jeremy Malott really is. Being on the road riding BMX with his mates is what Jeremy lives for. 2017 was good. How good? Read below as he gives some feedback on his special year.

Do you remember the first BMX event you went to this year and how did it go? Jeremy Malott: The first event I went to this year was the Triples event in Anaheim and it was actually my first time ever riding dirt so it was awesome to adapt to it, I’m looking forward to the events next year!
How many weekends/days were you away from home and at a BMX jam/contest or on tour? Jeremy Malott: I was away at least 2 times every month and the trips lasted about a week or so each so I was definitely on the go!
What was the best event you went to this year that gets your vote?
Jeremy caps off an amazing 2016 with some serious concrete shredding at Chandler Bikepark on the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona in the name of Hyper. Jeremy burst on the scene in a big way this year and, if this video is a sign of things to come, we can all expect A LOT more!
