Yay Bmx Racing

Today i was BMX Racing with my friend at a ABA Track and it was raining some of the time. So it was my first time EVER bmx racing and after like 30 mins of praticiing it was all slippery and i fell once on the Big Wall like this big dirt thing and then i fell at the Finish line of the real 1st Race vsing 13 year olds HOW CHEAP and i was waving at my friend and did like a barspin and flew off and then in the Finals i got 2nd Place and got a SWEET TROPHY! Oh ya i was using my friends weird Brazilian Bmx Racing bike. It was really FUN!

Cool. I was going to go to the track here with my friend today, but he bent his back rim and his mom got pissed at him and wouldn't let him go. Oh well.

Nope, I'm going to San Diego this summer for about 2 months and im racing down there... Maybe. It depends on what my dad does, he can go down there and work if he wants, if not I'm still building a track up here... the burms and the outline of the track are all done. it just needs some well grooming and fine tuning. Woops and stuff.

Maybe he was planning to air out of the first one, and go fast enough to clear all of them?

It doesn't take any time at all to learn to manual around a race track. You just go fast, lean back, and pump through it.
