The passion for riding came easily to T.J. He has been in the profession ever since he was a teenager. He boasts his presence in television as well as in music. Amidst his hyped-up career, he relishes a net worth of $9 million including his salary from MTV.

As a passionate rider, Lavin never whined about scratched skins, bleeding wounds and minor injuries as such. But in November 2010, he encountered a significant set back in his riding career. But the set back remained merely a coma rather than a full stop for the passionate BMXian.
He was injured at the Dew Tour Championships in his hometown when he failed to get his feet back on the pedal in mid-air of the stunt that caused him to land on his head. The lost balance resulted in brain hemorrhage and orbital fracture. The accident was intense enough to send him to 9 days of comatose. However, he survived the crash like a champion returning back to riding with few months of the accident.
The champion rider's flirtation with injury was not over.
It's 2018 and still, the love-hate relationship of the rider with injuries remain. He was in the hospital as recently as August 2018 on account of a BMX accident.
It might be the frequency he has maintained in getting hurt, that he seems to take the accidents as lightly as jokes. And why wouldn’t he as for him, the mishap was nothing near to life-threatening.
