BMX for Life Part 2
Myself I managed to achieve a goal that I had only recently set myself and make an A Final. Our Cruiser division (24" wheels) has been opened up so instead of just racing against my own age group, I'm racing against all ages from 17+. Bearing in mind I'm in the 45+ Category its tough competition but its such a fun category as many of us are dads with sons racing too, some have been racing years and like myself, a few of us have come back into it after years away. I'm absolutely loving being back into BMX, I don't think the passion has ever left me and I find myself making new friends, representing a great club in Cornwall BMX, people of similar passion and commitment to training and progression. When we race we want to beat each other and as soon as you cross the line, we congratulate each other, we shake hands and are pleased for each other, no matter how disappointed. I'm not winning races but I'm winning in the sense of achieving goals, I'm using techniques I'm teaching others to control my own nerves, develop own confidence and aim for the best result I can and so far I'm actually proud of myself. BMX for Life as they say.
