2yo Kiwi kid BMX star in the making

A two-year-old Kiwi kid is an extreme sports prodigy in the making after taking up BMX riding.

Tanner Maguire's parents Wendy and Hayden couldn't hold him back when he first sat on a bike. Now Tanner's kitted out with all the gear and he's dropping from BMX ramps 10-times his own height.

"Took him down to the local skatepark and he picked it up pretty quickly," Hayden says.

Even Tanner's BMX coach says he "slays" the track.
