15 year old Archer made history at the beginning of the year by becoming the youngest person on record to land a motorcycle back flip over 75ft. He did so with the assistance of mentor and X Games gold medalist Cam Sinclair.
With the back flip already in his repertoire, as well as many of the sports most technical ‘upright’ tricks, Archer drew the attention of Powersports Kawasaki management. Until this point, Archer’s FMX career had survived mostly on second hand machinery supplied by mentor Sinclair. The youngster has also earned support from industry sponsors Fox and Oakley.
Ben Sterling from Powersports Kawasaki says, “We’ve heard a lot about Jayo and really just wanted to give him the opportunity to take his career to the next level. He’s only very young, but obviously has a great gift for FMX and for a kid his age, has a really level head.”
Excited to get support from Powersports Kawasaki, Jayden ’Jayo’ Archer says. “At the moment, I just want to ride and keep learning new tricks. I’m really lucky to have someone like Cam (Sinclair) to learn from – so I’ll try to make the most of it. I’m really excited to have a brand new KX250F to ride, it’s awesome!”
After taking delivery of his new 2012 Kawasaki KX250F over the weekend, Archer’s plan is to continue building FMX experience heading into 2012.
