Aaron Gwin started his cycling career off early racing BMX from age 4. By age 8 Gwin was racing all the nationals. At age 12 Gwin moved on to motocross and raced up until he was 17 when he quit due to constant injuries. In 2008 at age 20 Gwin was loaned a bike by fellow professional downhill racer and good friend Cody Warren and was encouraged to compete in a race. In his first race in the Fontana Winter Series he got 3rd and began racing from then on.

Much of Gwin's style and skill come from his motocross days, and his whips and jumping technique show it in videos. He also gained a lot of flow from racing BMX for so many years, it also shows in his Dual Slalom and Mountain Cross results. Aaron joined the Trek World Racing Team in November 2010 after relocating to Temecula, CA.

Aaron's other interests include motocross, surfing, tennis, his car, and racing his SC10 4x4 with at his friend's track in Temecula!
