After many months of talk and speculation, I finally made my bmx debut today. The forecast called for rain, but Adam and I decided to make the trip to Woodbridge anyway. Recognizing a couple of fellow old timers, the track director immediately walked over and introduced himself and advised us to get out there and start practicing. We probably road for 2 hours straight....which in hindsight was likely a mistake come race time because my legs were already noodles. A couple of observations from the recent outing. #1. The jumps are huge. I was not anticipating that.
#2. I suck at gates big time
#3. Falling really doesn't hurt when you're all geared up.
So....all in all it was a great outing. I can't wait to get back at it. In fact, I'm already scheming about what my next build is going to be. I'm 99% certain it's going to be a GHP XXL frame.
