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!
When Kenneth Tencio first took up BMX there were very few facilities where he could practice, but that hasn’t stopped the Costa Rican from carving out a successful career! While most BMX riders specialise in one discipline, Tencio has always been known for his versatility, regularly training in park, dirt and street. After moving to Jacó he needed somewhere to train and soon found himself regularly visiting the home of an Argentinean skateboarder who had a bowl in his backyard which Tencio has now bought and moved into!
Despite turning his home into something pretty epic, Tencio felt he needed somewhere else to train and develop so he set out to build his very own skate park and in the space of five years has transformed a barren patch of land into a BMX rider’s’ dream which riders across Costa Rica can actually go to, train, and stay at!
