Meet Kenneth Tencio, the BMX champion who has invited us into his incredible home set-up in Costa Rica! When Kenneth Tencio first took up the BMX there were very few facilities where he could practice, but that hasn’t stopped the Costa Rican from carving out a successful career. Still residing in his home country, in the city of Jacó, Tencio has ensured he doesn’t have to travel far to train. That’s thanks to his backyard boasting ramps, jumps and even his very own bowl. Here is all you need to know:
- While most BMX riders specialise in one discipline, Tencio has always been known for his versatility, regularly training in park, dirt and street.
Eye two seven five is the interstate artery that runs through Tampa Bay connecting Tampa, St. Pete, and Clearwater. In hindsight, this interstate happened to be the thoroughfare that took us to every spot over the course of 5 days in February, 2021.
Went up North for 4 days. Got heavily involved in the local culture from everything to only eating Cobs in Notts to singing Wonderwall with 200 pissed up Mancs. Managed to squeeze in some BMX in between that.
When it comes to Costa Rica, it is widely perceived as a tropical paradise with breathtaking nature, gorgeous beaches and world-class surf. If you ask Kenneth Tencio about it, he will confirm everything written above and add ”BMX destination” to it. A few months ago the Costa Rican local decided to go on a road trip from the Caribbean to the Pacific coast, finding as many cool spots on the way as he can along the way.
