Meet the Athlete

Perris got her start in freestyle BMX while growing up in Reno, Nevada, thanks to her older brother, Tyler and his friends. She was the only girl among them, but that didn’t stop her from learning new skills. In 2018, Perris won the gold medal in BMX freestyle park at the UCI Urban Cycling World Championships in Chengdu, China, with two other American women, Angie Marino and Hannah Roberts, taking second and third. It was an unreal moment in the history of BMX Freestyle.
