Got my new @bellbikehelmets @rockstarenergy helmet done just in time for round 2 of UCI SX World Cup series in Holland this weekend! #81 #FreeAgentBMX @ride100percent Thanks to @smith_designs for another awesome helmet design!
Rough start of the SX season this past weekend in Manchester. I crashed pretty hard in 1/8 final but glad I was able to walk away with no serious injuries. I tried to give it a go in 1/4 final but I was just too banged up! I should be good to go for Papendal SX in 3 weeks... Time to rest up for a few days and start getting ready for upcoming races. @freeagentbmx @rockstarenergy @bellbikehelmets @ride100percent @speedlineparts #81 #FreeAgentBMX #FaithRaceWear
I was a little bit surprised that no one hasn't really brought this up yet! Prize money has gone down at European Cup races despite that BMX has grown and races have gotten bigger & bigger! For being an Olympic sport I just think the top 3 payout is very disrespectful to all the riders and sport in general! Countries and cities shouldn't be able to organize races if they can't handle the payout part! Unfortunately but UEC is going into the wrong direction! I have always enjoyed coming to Europe and do a few races now and then but these days you can't even book a hotel and cover race entry fees for 330€ !!! #UEC #BMX #racing #EliteMen
I have been dealing with some back issues this past week! I tried to give it a go today in practice but it's not where I could go out and compete for 100% yet. I have always loved racing in Europe and it's definitely frustrating to not be able to race here & start my season in front of some of the best fans we have in this sport. @freeagentbmx @rockstarenergy @bellbikehelmets @ride100percent @speedlineparts #FaithRaceWear #81
