Austin Bangs is an expert BMX racer out of Medford Oregon. Most of the residents here in the area are familiar with fire season but in Austin’s time in the Rogue Valley, he’s never seen a fire quite like the Almeda fire. Catastrophe has a way of bringing out a unique side of people that are often forgotten about and is always needed in times of hardship. Most people can recall a time early in their lives that they were saving up for something they really wanted. Austin had been saving up money for a brand new BMX bike when all hell broke loose here in the rogue valley.
