“While growing up as a kid, I always was someone who was inclined towards cycles, bikes, and cars. Eventually, I discovered my love for bikes and stunts through the internet. My journey began by trying to learn how to do wheelies on others bikes and it gave me enough confidence to even get my own bike. While I was finishing my 12th, I was very sure of what I wanted to do in life, stunt riding/street bike freestyle,” shared Anam.
