"Riders on the gate......"

Yeah, BMX time baby! FINALLY had a break in our daily rains that allowed the track to dry up enough to let the first ever Live Wire BMX tear it up! It's amazing how much faster a kid is on a quality mini-BMX compared to their old 16" dept store bike.

First practice run with one of the "big" boys.

Jammin' down the start ramp- the coolest 5 year old out there! ;)

Lined up and ready for moto 1.

Riding alone after a pretty good crash at the end of moto 2- turns out the new bike is so much faster he's catching air in places he was just barely rolling over before. Still ended up with a 2nd place trophy on the day, not bad for the first time out on the new bike!

Next up, the curved seat tube fixed gear I mentioned a while back.

There are a few guys that race there that are my age......hmmm, might be a 26" bmx in my future.

I dig the mini. Get yourself out there on the track - it will make you feel just like a kid again. It is also good to have your ego stomped on a few times by a couple of 12 year olds. I still roll through the doubles - I pay my own deductible.
