Born and raised in Austin, Chase has been a gifted BMX rider since age 7. Though he lacks the newest, biggest box jump tricks, he's long been known as a soulful rider much-admired by peers for his high speed flow and creative line choices. The 2014 X Games Park course seemed custom-built for Chase, and he earned his first medal, gold, in his 8th appearance. Chase loves Austin and its citizens love him in return. The mayor even named August 16 as Chase Hawk Day. While his competition tries to avoid wilting in the searing sun, he'll be searching for new lines on the course.
- Chase's best Park finish in seven X Games appearances was 4th at X Games LA in 2011. 28-year old Hawk began racing BMX at age seven and was named the NORA Cup award winner for Ramp Rider of the Year in 2009. The Austin, TX resident will be making his 8th X Games appearance in Austin 2015.
