At the Nanaimo BMX track, there’s a two-year-old boy turning heads.

From the day he was born Kashius Alexander — or Kash for short — has been groomed to ride a bike.

“He’s been into riding before he could even walk,” says his mom, Kimeesha See.

“His first word was bike after mom and dad and he started off on a run bike and then he was on a pedal bike before he turned two,” adds See.

It was evident from the start that he had some skills.

Alexander graduated from practicing on the pump track at the Steve Smith Park to racing BMX against older kids and had no problem keeping up.

“There’s no other kids his age that are racing … the youngest kid after him is five,” says See.

As for what Kash likes best about riding, it’s pretty simple.

“The big air,” he says with a big smile.

That big air is what has made Kash a social media star, having amassed more than 32,000 followers on Tik Tok.

“I started posting videos of him riding when he started getting better and progressing just kind of as a memory for me to look back and for him to look back when he’s older and see himself,” says See.

“It just blew up, everyone was loving watching him ride,” smiles See.

Now Kash is moving onto his next challenge, the world of motocross.

“We just got him a little PW50 [dirt bike] and he just took off on it right away,” says See.

“He was two years and two months old when he rode the dirt bike with no training wheels or anything,” adds See.

No matter where Kash’s road takes him, he’ll have his family backing him all the way.

“It’s definitely something he’s passionate about and something he loves, so we’re just trying to foster that and support him in it,” says See.
