BMX champ Steven Wong takes a ride through the streets of Hong Kong

The local Asian Games athlete also shows off a test run on the dirt track and his sporty girlfriend

Winning the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games next week will bring Hong Kong BMX star Steven Wong closer to his ultimate goal: qualifying for the London Olympics. 

The sexy 22-year-old Belgian-born champ is Chinese on his father's side and represents Hong Kong. When Wong won gold at the East Asian Games in 2009, his sweet pretty boy looks made him an immediate target for sports marketers and helped spread Wong's reknown.

As the rider gears up for the inaugural BMX event at the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games, we ride with him in Hong Kong's crowded streets all the way to his BMX training grounds, and meet his girlfriend.
