Before he was "Dr." Jason Richardson, Jason travelled the world as a Professional BMX Racer while maintaining a Top-Ten World or National Ranking for the better part of his 15-year career. In 1994 Jason Richardson earned the distinction of UCI World Champion at the age of 19. Thirteen years later, he earned the Gold Medal at the 2007 PanAM Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Today, friends and clients call him DrJRich!
