Bruce Cook Biography and early life

Bruce cook was born in Kelowna, BC, on June 17, 1987.  He is among the very few dirt riders who brought the luck to get fame for riding bikes. At the age of 05, he got his first dirt bike, and he did his stunt research at the age of 05. At the age of 10, Bruce had fame among the neighbors for doing amazing stunts even adults could do. Bruce could not get higher education as he finalized his academics after 18. His parents were not famous characters, and only a limited statement has come out of Bruce about them as well. 

Family and relationships

His only relationship is with his modified dirt bike, which he uses to travel around the globe and entertain others. 

What happened at AGT?

Bruce Cook came to AGT with a reputation.  He tried to do a backflip using his dirt bike with the state he is on, not moving legs or the lower part of his body. He was going to wear seat belts while doing the trick, and every outcome would be tolerated by him as he didn’t have any escape. Travis got sensitive before the trick, and he said that “I can judge, but I’m not allowed to vote for Cook as he is one of my best friends.” Just like he promised, he did it. Not only did he do, but he earned the respect of the judges.

“That is pretty incredible. I think your determination is inspiring to us all,” said Simon. When coming to Travis’s comments, “How did you do that? While you were doing that flip, your body was tied to a 250-pound animal, a coyote. I’m so proud of you”. “I have not seen anything like this before, and you truly are incredible,” said Nikki Bella.

Bruce Cook Career

What happened to Bruce Cook?

One of the most concerning things about this amazing rider is his accident. It occurred in 2014 while he was taking part in the Nitro Circus. He had to face destiny while he was doing a double flip on the opening night of the Nitro Circus at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario. Soon after the accident, Bruce Cook stated that his feelings on his legs of the lower part of the body are not felt. The double flip was not tried at least once by any rider at an X game earlier.

Bruce Cook had tried it in 2012 as well as at a foam pit where he used to practice for Nitro Circus. According to his fans, the accident was a great way to show the courage of the start as he not only showed his thumbs up a week after the accident, but he recovered within 09 months and came up as a paraplegic freestyle motocross (FMX).
