Wes Agee was always on a bike when he was growing up. His family often went out into the desert for riding and that’s why it did not take long before young Wes had his own bike. For the young man from Fallbrook, California it did not matter if the bike had an engine or was a BMX bike - the main thing was that he was riding on two wheels. The KTM rider moved to Temecula when he was 15 and it did not take long before he became infected with the FMX virus in that hotbed of the sport. He quickly improved on the ramp and was soon pulling off eye-catching tricks. Still at a young age, Agee set himself the goal of pulling off a flip before he turned 18 as well as the aim of becoming a member of the notorious Metal Mulisha Crew – both of which he accomplished. Wes has not yet ridden in many competitions, but he made a name for himself on account of the major roles he has played in some of the biggest FMX video productions. His wildcard entry for the 2nd Red Bull X-Fighters event of 2012 in Glen Helen fit his riding well and got 3rd place in his debut. The massive track with so many options was exactly the kind of circuit that a rider like Wes thrives on. His strong 3rd place finish proved what many experts anticipated ahead of the competition and Agee eked out more then he could have expected with invitations to the next events and becoming a Red Bull Athlete.
