Are there any guys over 35 riding half pipe? I'm 39 and building one for the kids and I. Just wondering if I'm crazy or not.

He's also one of the most talented guys to ever ride a bike, I meant any normal everyday guys.

Well, I guess X-games vert finals proved age is not a limiting fator and pretty much answered the question...
