Hailing from Sparta, New Jersey, Jeff Lenosky has reminded the world time and time again throughout his 15 years on two wheels just why he's referred to as The Father of urban free-riding. A perennial innovator, urban explorer and top-tier competitor, Lenosky's pushed the sport far beyond its humble beginnings, introducing it to a new generation of riders in the process.
Since jumping into urban free-riding in the mid-90s, Jeff Lenosky's professional resume continues to be peppered with accolades: he's a three-time North American Trail Champion, World Record Bunny Hop holder (read: 45.5 inches off the ground) and a nine-time National Medal winner. And those are just the competition scores.
In an exhibition, Lenosky is unparalleled. In 2010 alone, The Father performed over 75 of them at more than 30 venues across the country, showcasing some of the sport's most impressive maneuvers and introducing free-riding to many who never knew it existed. It's safe to say he's a pretty nurturing Father.
