BMX for Life
After travelling up on the Saturday we had a great open practice with friends at a great track in Marsh Barton Exeter and welcomed the hotel Saturday night that was given to us by a friend who had to sadly cancel. I owe you one Jon Clifton...thank you but gutted you missed a great weekend.
I wish I could explain this in more detail because the whole atmosphere of being at the races is such a great experience, the racing is so intense and the crashes heavy, it amazing fun. When the racing started Jago rode his heart out amongst an amazing group of 7 year olds who are the future of BMX Racing, these youngsters know how to ride and ride fast. Many have a few years experience on Jago but he made me so proud finishing 3rd in his B Final pushing him up the rankings a little and possibly into the top 10 in the South West, we'll have to wait for the points to be added to British Cycling. So proud as he never once gave, up. Even after slipping a peddle at the gate he didn't drop his head he fought back and took two places fighting all the way to the line. His B Final was the same he rode the last straight with so much determination that he go the third place and his smile said it all. Super Stoked.
Our Club as a whole did amazing well with so many riders taking top places and making A Finals, Micah, Colby, Sienna, Logan, DCL, Scotty, Yasmin, Abi, Andy, Kalin, Jacob, Caden and so many others getting great placings its a testament to a great club with committed coaches and volunteer staff that make racing so much fun and when you see the organisation and support that goes into a regional race like Exeter its staggering and its all voluntary.
With seven more rounds to go I'm so hooked on racing again and Jago can't wait for next weekend as Round 3 is at our Home track at Cornwall BMX Racing Club so if anyone local is reading this and wants to watch some great racing then come on on down.
