Shawn Carden, BMX Pro from Salinas
As 2016 rolls in, we’re even prouder of this now 22-year-old from Monterey County and his accomplishments as a professional BMX rider.
At this time, Shawn is mostly in training at Surprise, Arizona. When he’s not in Arizona, Shawn’s activities include traveling to nationals.
Shawn is also a lead trainer for Pro BMX Supercamp, which teaches BMX skills all over the United States and Canada.

Shawn began 2016 by visiting his home turf. During a 2015 visit, Shawn was a featured guest at the Silver Star Resource Center mentoring group.
Shawn’s ties to Salinas also include that while on the road, he squeezes out time to continue online courses toward a degree from Hartnell College.
