Video: Finding Flow & Style at 11 Years Old

Jan 31, 2019
by Steven Lloyd  

What a year it has been for Weston (aka Westeez) Lloyd, an 11 year old shredder out of Salt Lake City, UT. For a kid, dreaming of becoming like your heroes and visiting Whistler Bike Park can be life-changing. But working hard and putting in the time at home is where true shape takes place. With places Virgin Utah, I street, and Deer Valley, Utah has been shaping some of freeride's youngest talent. As school got out for summer, Weston got busy hitting the dirt jumps as much as possible as well as trips to the old Rampage site and the local bike park.

Working on his style has been his main goal this year and stepping up to more challenging features. Teaming up with his Dad, Weston dedicated some time to filming some edits. I street is where Weston learned to ride jumps and it was the perfect place to film.


I Street has been a proving ground for may Utah riders. Weston has been going to I street since he was 2 years old on training wheels.

Working on getting those tables flat.

This fall might have been the most epic fall ever. Jumping through the yellow aspens at Deer Valley.


Weston looks forward to going to Rampage every year. Not only to watch his favorite riders compete, but to dial in his skills with his buddies.

 So, here's an encouraging/discouraging fact: I've been riding over 300% longer than L'il Dude, and his whip is 300% better than mine.

 Not only are Weston and his dad awesome riders they're awesome people too! Down to shred and talk bikes with anyone that's willing. Great influencers of the bike community here in UT.

 Take note Dads. The kid isn't riding silly plus tires. He isn't on a massive 27.5 bike that he can barely stand on just for speed. He is on a properly sized bike (for the most part) with nice wheels.

 Nice work Team Team Lloyd. 11 years old and already better than 95% of riders. You can even see how much better he's gotten from Spring to Fall in the video! Stay healthy and keep inspiring us Weston.
