 I don´t want to sound old, but: no back protection at all? Really?
That doesn´t say anything about the skills, it´s just awesome what he´s doing.
But I think he should do that for the next years and stay healthy doing it...

 I think risk/reward has been measured. Hes already broken his femur riding so I guess his folks know whats up!

 There is the little 6yro from Washington doing Whistler road gaps now. I have mixed feelings about it, but yeah that's about as big as I've seen a super young kid go. We raced with him a year or two ago, nice little guy.

 Maybe the next Semenuk if that is even possible? Super Rad little Dude... Well done Harry!!

 YT have, they have supplied him with a custom bike, a one of a kind. Harry's part of the mob! Wink

 Some companies don't sponsor kids under a certain age out of fear that it puts too much pressure on a kid to do things the might not want to do, pressure the parents could put on them, etc. No idea if YT has that or not but IMO its something all companies should consider.

 This is a one of a kind, custom build. It was built by YT especially for Harry's weight & size.
