THE BRONX - A young skateboarder from the Bronx is leaving his competition in the dust and making an international name for himself.

Dejaune Jones, 16, has been speeding through the ranks as a downhill speedboarder. He clocks in at 62 mph on his longboard.

He's been skating since he was 11 and has secured the top spot of the junior division in Washington's Mary Hill Festival of Speed. He's also the division champ of New Jersey's Major Stok'em race.

Jones is sponsored by nine skateboard companies and is already preparing for the competition at the Madison County Gravity Fest.
