Aaron Ross is one of the nicest people you will ever meet in BMX. He also happens to be a social media king with an insane amount of followers and fans. Known for his love of fluorescent and bright colored frames, this dude is also one of the top street riders out there. Every time he puts out an edit, you can expect to see nothing short of 100k views (and that’s on the low end). He is a fan favorite and has won street rider of the year and the peoples choice award multiple times.
