14-year old shines in motocross

This Brakes Plus Little Athlete is not so little. Jason O'Connor of Colorado Springs just turned 14-years old and is one of the top young motocross riders in the state.

He has been doing motocross for five years and has won several state championships.

And now Jason's goal is to compete at national events like the World Mini Grand Prix.

"It's a really exhilarating feeling," said Jason. "When you jump into the air, that's basically my favorite part of the whole racing, because you're flying through the air and going fast. And it's extremely fun."

He just broke his leg so he's sidelined for a couple months. He has also broken his collarbone and wrist.

Jason says his other hobbies are BMX racing and making his own rap music. He also gets good grades in school.
